CSA1

My roommate and I share our CSA which is a half share of veggies, eggs, and orchard. This is our first year doing a CSA and we have been loving it! Here’s how we’ve been using the share this week:

Monday: After picking up the share, we decided to make a quiche with the spinach, corn, red onion (from two weeks ago), and eggs from the share. I just used a quick store bought crust, then I just sauteed up the veggies and added them to the crust. Then poured a mixture of 4 whisked eggs and about a half cup of milk plus salt and pepper on top. We added some shredded cheddar cheese and cilantro on top, then baked. This is a quick and easy meal that also makes great breakfasts or lunches throughout the week. We served the quiche with a salad using the Asian mixed greens and the radishes.

Tuesday: Today we had vegetarian black bean tacos. I just used some simmered black beans and served the tacos with a salad using an ear of roasted corn, cilantro, red onion from 2 weeks ago, and a non-CSA tomato. On top I used a tomatillo salsa that I had from last week that is the recipe that you guys posted a few weeks ago. It is really yummy!

Wednesday: Tonight we had Asian rice bowls (although I served it on a plate!), kind of a mix between Japanese and Korean flavors. This meal is also a good way to use up any random vegetables you may have lying around as you can pretty much throw whatever you want in here. The base is steamed Japanese sushi rice, then I added: steamed mustard greens, sliced radishes, and a soft boiled egg all from the share, plus some sliced avocado, kimchi from a jar that I had in the fridge, and chopped scallions. I just made a dressing with miso paste, rice vinegar, and sesame oil and drizzled that on top.

Thursday: Dinner was Was leftovers tonight but I did get around to roasting my pumpkin from two weeks ago. Just roasted in the over then pureed in the food processor. I saved it in ziplocks and will keep in the freezer until I’m ready to make a pie!

Friday and Saturday we didn’t cook. Sunday we made a soup with the other bunch of mustard greens and lamb sausage as well as some other random veggies thrown in. We served it with bread and cheese!!

This is our friend Yvonne doing her distribution service on Oct.06th. She is the one who introduced us to the Southside CSA. She gave us her share on week while she was out of town and we were blown away!

Our family is 3 people- two adults and a 4 year old. The share we got from Yvonne was a full share with Veggies, Berries, Orchard, Meat and Eggs. It was the 4th of July weekend and we had way more food than we could handle. We had a bbq party and ate all we could of the amazing food.

We signed up right away!

Knowing that we couldn’t manage the massive amount of food, we asked our friends who are the same size family as us, to split a share. We chose to sign up for Veggies, Berries, Orchard and eggs.

We go to every distribution and split it up on the spot. every week we alternate who gets the eggs.

This is our split. Half a bunch of red mizuna each :) some times we just pick who wants what more.. We will take the spinach and they take the arugula..Depends on the mood.

Monday night distro has also turned into our daughters favorite night of the week. she sees her friends, stays out late,- drinks fancy virgin cocktails. Nice energy and great light in the Woods.

So for Oct.06 share: we took home  corn, radishes, red mizuna, spinach, tomatillos, poblano peppers, cilantro, a half pound of Chilliquita peppers, apples, gourds, a pumpkin and mustard greens- not our week for the eggs.
