My Husband and I have half shares of vegetable, orchard, berry, egg and meat. Below is an example of how we use up all of the goodness!!
Monday night:To tired to cook, so we spent the evening sorting our share and eating leftovers- corn and turkey leg stuffed poblano peppers with tomatillo salsa.

Corn is one of my favorite “vegetables”. I count down the days till the fresh corn arrives in our CSA. And then do the happy dance when they arrive in the Winter Share. Not much beats a sweet corn soup in the dark days of Winter. Cleaning out the inbox I found a Member Diary which somehow never got posted. Whoops! Plus, gearing up for our first distribution of frozen delights from Winter Sun, I was cruising through pics of meals we rocked last year. We loooooooove corn soup!
Want to eat local this Winter? Still time to sign up for vegetables and fruits frozen at the height of their Summer sweetness that will brighten any Winter dinner !
One of our fave Winter meals is a delicious bowl of steaming curry served over rice or polenta or noodles. We love all the curries created around the world, rotating between an assortment of pre-made rouxs, sometimes going for a Thai, a Malaysian, or Indian base. Yolim loves a thick Japanese curry with his beef and when it is his turn to cook tends to bust out the Golden Curry. For an interesting discussion on Japanese curry roux mixes, check out this blog post on Serious Eats – Taste Test Confession — I can’t live without my fresh curry bases bought in chinatown from the little thai grocer located by Columbus Park, but after having just read “Cooked” by Michael Pollan I am determined to stop buying the processed bricks and rock the japanese roux from scratch.

Eating local can be challenge during the snowy months as the produce available at farmer’s markets gets less numerous by the week.
And then this happens!

I’ve been doing the Southside CSA on and off for the past 4 years and I’m back “on” again for a bunch of reasons: the food variety is better and the share has gotten larger over the years, I’m eating more meals at home, I’ve grown more comfortable in the kitchen and it’s still really convenient for me to pick up the share at The Woods. I’m a triathlete so I don’t stop eating, ever, and the full share of veggies and half share of berries and eggs has proven to be a perfect amount of food for me. I might have people over or offer some meals to my three roommates towards the end of the week, sometimes I trade baked goods for coffee at my coffee spot or bring stuff to work to share with my colleagues but ultimately there’s barely any food leftover from the previous week and I always look forward to stocking up every Monday night. Monday and Tuesdays are my days off from my job so they’re usually heavy training, eating, and cooking/food prep days for me. This keeps the fridge relatively organized, not totally overflowing with four people’s food and I don’t have to worry about cooking the rest of the week if I take care of it all right after I pick up the share.
