CSA Week ?? (7/9/14)

The kids and I persevered through a monsoon to get our veggies this week. Thankfully, the rain lessened once we parked and started walking to the square. Still… another cloudy day picture and, since I have no photo studio, the picture is a bit lacking. The produce isn't, though!

A feast in a box:

  • bag hot peppers
  • box of lovely yellow and red tomatoes
  • box of perfect little red cherry tomatoes
  • 1 bag red potatoes
  • 1 bag white onions
  • 1 head romaine lettuce (which had these two little friends on it)
  • 1 small head cabbage--really, this is the perfect size cabbage. Have you ever bought a head of cabbage to shred for slaw and watched it multiply like crazy?!
  • 1 bunch kale
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 bunch carrots with tops! (yes, the tops are edible--they're kind of like parsley)

Mmmmm…. what to fix with these gems? Some possibilities:
  • Salsa! 
  • Salad!
  • Slaw!
  • Stir fry! (stir fried cabbage is amazing….)
  • Home Fries or potato salad or mashed potatoes or roasted potatoes--oh, the potato possibilities are endless, aren't they? Especially when you have some onions along with them.
