Early Bird CSA

Posted on

Number 9. Number 9. Nine weeks in. Credits to the Beatles for the number nine inspiration. I really love going out to the farm to pick up my CSA share. The whole connection thing. Knowing the source of your food. Knowing the names of the people who run the share pick up site. Feeling like a person, and not a number (nine or otherwise).

We got:
3 ruby red grapefruit
1 eggplant (as you notice, missing, swapped for grapefruit)
1 pound kale
1 pound Brussels sprouts
1/2 pound crimini mushrooms
1 pound green beans
1 bunch huge spring onions
1/2 pound salad mix

I picked whole wheat bread, and the Breezy Willow eggs.

The tops of the onions already went into guacamole. Tonight’s appetizer.

Loving the Harris Teeter near us. I got some organic Haas avocados. And made some great guacamole.

Dinner a one pan baking deal.

Italian sausage, spinach, onion, zucchini, garlic, spring onions, seasoned salt, olive oil, chicken broth. Slow cooked in the oven. Served for dinner with the Great Harvest bread to mop up all that lovely sauce.
