CSA Week 11

This week’s CSA pickup was another good one. It included a few items that we haven’t had before, such as carrots, tomatoes and a huge bunch of basil. I used the basil to make a delicious walnut pesto, which I served with diced tomato and whole wheat linguine.

The tomatoes and basil also went to one of my summer staples: tomato sandwiches.

I roasted the carrots with last week’s turnips and beets for a light vegetable plate. I’m going to use the beets in this week’s pickup to make the Roasted Yellow Beet Salad with Warm Maple Mustard Dressing from the PPK website.

I hope everyone is doing well. I’m going to be playing around with the site layout and design this week, so bear with me as I fumble my way through the changes.

CSA Week 10

Sorry for the lack of posts. It’s been a busy, but boring, few weeks. I’ve been really lazy with my cooking lately, too, which has led to some not-so-healthy takeout meals. As you can see, I haven’t been keeping up with my CSA posts, but our bounties have been pretty good, with the addition of potatoes, onions and garlic. We’ve gotten a few cases of blueberries, which I love. I’d be happy getting blueberries every week.

This week’s pickup is one of the best so far. We got two heads of cabbage, turnips, golden beets, red potatoes, zucchini, squash, garlic and two kinds of kale. I can definitely make quite a few meals out of this pickup.

I hope everyone is doing well!
