CSA: Week 4

There was no pickup for Thursday members last week, but Tuesday members got a share, so this week’s Thursday share was extra big, as will be a few others to make up the difference.

 

Week 4

Blueberries and Raspberries for the fruit, I chose red over black, because that’s the way I roll. Burrata for the cheese share.

That tomato would like you to know that it is really the english shelling peas that I was supposed to get the week before last. The farm delivered 1/6 as many as promised, and apparently had a huge rot problem, so those of us who didn’t get peas, got tomatoes this week.

Onions, carrots, cucumbers, snap peas, summer squash, and a head of lettuce round out the share. I see a lot of salads in our future this week.

Salads, CSA Style

Salad

 

I know I said yesterday that I was going to make salads with chicken. But I was tired, and the chicken was at the bottom of the freezer. So I decided on poached eggs as the protein instead.

I washed and ripped apart the CSA lettuce, chopped up tomatoes from week 2, chopped grocery store carrots and celery, and ripped up some of the pea shoots. I added chopped feta from last weeks cheese share, and poached a few eggs to throw on top.

I then begged Carl to make a vinaigrette because he is awesome at them. This one was sesame oil and rice wine vinegar.

The salads were simple, yet delicious, and a great way to celebrate the end of the year. We paired them with a 90+ cellars granacha from Spain, which was much more to Carl’s taste than mine.

CSA Week 3

I still have a recipe from last week’s CSA to post, as well as an update as to what we used all the yummy stuff for, but the last week of school has been kicking my butt.

Today was the last day for teachers, so I get to sleep in tomorrow!

When I got to the depot, they were short volunteers, so I grabbed an apron and manned the small veggie station. The cool thing about volunteering is that if you are there at the end, you often get handed extra food: stuff from shares people didn’t pick up, stuff that the soup kitchen won’t take, etc. So this week’s share is extra-big, which is good, because there is no share on July 4th.

On to the food!

Week 3

 

Actual Share: 1 Napa Cabbage, 1 Kohlrabi, Collard Greens as the choice, 1 bag pea tendrils, 1 head lettuce, 1 box strawberries, 1 box cherries, and a wedge of cheddar I forgot to put in the photo.

Extras: 2 bundles of kale, 1 bag of pea tendrils, 1 box of cherries.

Dinner tonight will be salads with chicken, last week’s feta, the lettuce, and pea tendrils.
