We are new to the Southside CSA and enjoying it immensely. We are trying to eat especially healthy as I’m expecting our first baby in October. Here are two recipes we made from our produce this week.

This is our fourth year as CSA members. We have a Full Monty share. Each year it gets easier. By now we pretty much know what to do with everything and rarely get surprised by new vegetables. We cook mainly vegan at home (no meat, fish or dairy), but love the “happy” eggs we get from the farm.
We usually make a couple of big dishes each week that can then be eaten for lunch or dinner on days we don’t have time to cook. We try to come up with ideas for what to do with our fruit and veggies on Monday evening, then drop by the grocery store for extra recipe ingredients on Tuesday after work, and spend a couple of hours Tuesday or Wednesday cooking. We’re both competent cooks, so together it only takes us a few hours to turn most of our share into food for the week.
This week’s share included Eggs, Peaches, Apples, Acorn Squash, Kale, Japanese Eggplant, Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Radishes, Mint and Rosemary (traded half our mint for half my sister’s rosemary, so got some of both).

This is my third year in the Southside CSA and it’s always a highlight of my summer. This year I have a half veggie, half orchard, half eggs, and half (shared) berry. Officially, this share is mine alone, but I tend to cook for my roommate, my boyfriend, friends or coworkers often. The vegetables make up most of my lunches and dinners for the first week with a few things saved for the next (off) week. To keep from getting overwhelmed, I set up my berry share on the opposite week of my vegetable/fruit/egg share.
What a haul this week! Cilantro, basil, carrots, kale, leeks, beets, green peppers, zucchini, purple potatoes, corn, a dozen eggs, and two kinds of plums.
