We split a Half Monty Deluxe between three households. Two of us have been part of the Southside CSA, so we generally know that once the blueberries start, you are in blueberry heaven for a few weeks, so we use a quick recipe to make some easy breakfast muffins.

I brought in my 2.5 y/o sous chef to help me create some magic in the kitchen today. Our kitchen took a beating but I think the end result was well worth the effort. I included a photo journal of what we were able to achieve.
Outer circle going clockwise from the top left:
- Diced zucchini ready for an adventure
- Prepping my ingredients for tea – mint/ lemon/ honey
- Mint tea
- Blueberry apple crisp
- Broiled pork chops over a bed of red quinoa & zucchini
- Sauteed zucchini with red quinoa
Inner circle from top to bottom:
- Apple Sauce cooling on the stove top
- Evan eating apples faster then I can peel them.

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).

1st jamming session of the season
We busted out the jam pot and made our first jam of the season. Strawberry jam! The batch turned out so deliciously red that i started thinking about getting a start on my Christmas jamming. Strawberry and rhubarb jam are such a great red color that they are beyond beautiful gifts. Plus they are such a sweet surprise in December. Inspiration to follow…

The best part of joining Southside CSA (I am a second year) was how it inspired me to cook again. I cooked a ton last summer. It’s so thrilling to come up with creative ways to use the share. My stacks of recipes and cookbooks are finally put to the test.
