Winter CSA Finale Week 18

Posted on

The CSA ended today. One week hiatus and then the next one starts. We did get a bonus. Along with the six items I ordered.

I ordered and received.

spring onions
white potatoes

The bonus:

A frozen vacuum packed bag of cauliflower. With the leeks and spring onions, this will make a great soup.

We also got a package of the Angus ground beef for the freezer.

i just used an earlier delivered package of the beef to make mini meatball soup last night.

That dinner featured CSA spinach, carrots and leeks. Along with a Cellar Selection Syrah from Breaux in VA. Cellar Selection wines are fun. Small batch, hand picked grapes, lots of attention, a boutique wine from a large winery. As for the meatball “dumplings”, they were light but really featured the Angus beef. Love having ground beef that doesn’t include additives.

I have to say we were pleased with the Zahradka Farm winter CSA. A half share in the winter was the right amount for us. If you live in Howard County, they will be setting up on Saturdays at the Glenwood farmer’s market. We always buy exotic veggies from them.

Markets open in less than two weeks. Can’t wait. But, at least I have enough veggies here to tide me over until the first delivery of my summer CSA from Sandy Spring.
