Our household stats: We are a family of four (two adults, a four-year old, and an infant) with a Week B half-share of both Veggie and Orchard. It takes us a full two weeks to use up all the produce. Sadly, Berry and Egg Share season is over. This week we enjoyed hearty meals featuring roasted potatoes, roasted butternut squash, apple crisp, hot apple cider, snake bites (IPA with cider!) and kale salad. Lots of kale salad.

FUNCORE Member Diary Week #22 (Sept 23)

IMG_0279-Rs
This week from our share we picked up the following:

  • 1 doz egg
  • 3 potatoes
  • 1 bunch parsley
  • 1 bunch radishes
  • 1 bunch scallions
  • 3 green peppers
  • 1 bunch lettuce
  • 4 ears corn
  • 14 apples
  • 2 poblano peppers
  • 1 pumpkin plus a mini guy

We usually make 4 to 5 things a week with what we pick up, but this week was the week we were due to have a baby- AND WE DID!  Our little man joined the world on Sept. 26th and while we are so excited to have him in our lives, we still need to eat.  So we kept it simple, but big on flavor and still used everything in our weekly pick up.

Early in the week we made a big bowl of veggie and quinoa salad.  Continue reading

Caroline F Member Diary from Week #22 (Sept 23)

I had a crazy busy week and I was only able to cook two meals. So, I made an effort to use as much of my share– a MimoMex Vegetable Share & Greig Farm Berry Share —  as possible in both of the meals.

Member Diary: Berry Monty’s November 19th Share

Hi readers!
Our household loves kale and sweet potatoes. For the last delivery of the season, we decided to have a super duper kale-fest. Below are a few of our favorite recipes, including two with kale. They are very quick and easy and best of all, healthy! Enjoy.

THE GRAND STREET GO-TO
Tonight (and most nights really) we sauteed kale and served it with roasted sweet potatoes and brown rice. You can serve this meal with braggs, tahini or any other kind of sauce that you happen like.


ANTS ON A LOG
Roast whole sweet potatoes with the skin on
Take them out of the oven, cut in half
Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle wtih sea salt
Serve over black quinoa.

This meal is very simple but the flavors are just right!!

WUTANG KALE SALAD
Discard kale stems
Rinse & chop leaves, and put in a big bowl
add olive oil and sea salt
massage leaves with your hands a few minutes
add finely sliced apples and julianned radished
add apple cider vinegar to taste
add fresh lemon juice to taste
sprinkle with nuts and seeds. (we like pistachios! and recently tried a flax-see nut mix)

Member Diary: Caitlyn’s September 10th Share


Hi there CSAers! Our share family consists of my girlfriend Mary and I (Caitlyn), and we have the Bridge share plus a Berry share, which means we do our veggie and orchard share every other week, and berries every week. This has been going a long way towards feeding us this summer. Mary is a vegetarian, and I have recently given up meat, so we’re eating a lot of produce. We do supplement our share with trips to the Greenmarket for things like garlic, onion and herbs, along with milk and yogurt. Here’s our haul for this week:

Beets, squash, and leeks, oh my.

Don’t forget lettuce, potatoes, radish, carrots, papalo, plums, and eggs. This week’s CSA offerings were quite beautiful.

Member Diary: Meeshka’s July 16th share

Our Half Monty share of veggies, eggs, orchard, and berries is split between three
roommates: Mo, Michele, and myself, Teresa. Last month, Michele moved into her
own place, and I leave New York in just a week for the West Coast, so it’s with a heavy
heart that I cooked up this week’s share. I’ve always enjoyed cooking, and farmshare
has provided me with a welcome challenge to incorporate new items into my repertoire,
and for that I – and my palate – are forever grateful! So consider this member diary my
departing love letter to Southside CSA.
