Fall CSA Week Four Happy Thanksgiving!

I have already posted about things I give thanks for having. The freshest, tastiest vegetables to add to our meals is certainly a contender here. Today we got a dozen wonderful items. Lots of goodies like baby romanescu cauliflower. A treat.

The list:

2 Gold Beets, almost two pounds
1 Head Baby Romanesco Cauliflower
4 small Bunches of Celery
1 Bag Sweet Hakurei Turnips, over a pound
1 Bag Purple Carrots, almost two pounds
1 Bag Watermelon Radishes, these are awesome
1 Bunch Collards
1 Bunch Leeks
1 Bag Sweet Potatoes, almost four pounds
1 Head Napa Cabbage (I swapped this for the radicchio in the swap box)
1 Bag Red Potatoes, three pounds
1 Carnival Squash, this is so cute

I have never had Carnival squash. And, watermelon radishes only once before. Lots of supporting items here for Thanksgiving dinner. Potatoes, carrots, celery. There was an alternative of green cabbage for some boxes, but not in mine. So, no sauerkraut in the near future.

The baby romanescu is adorable.

I haven’t done the math yet today, but when I get a chance I will. The radicchio will probably be grilled if the weather holds. The squash I have to research. Maybe some pumpkin pancakes this weekend. I am seeing pumpkin recipes everywhere.
