Meeshka Member Diary

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.

Dramalama Member Diary – Week #21

Veg + Berry + Orchard + Egg Shares – Week of Sept 16, 2013

Marla + Adam (aka Dramalama)  — Our share family size is two, consisting of me and my husband Adam, and we’ve been members of the Southside CSA since 2010. Having just moved from California where the produce is known for being fresh, I was eager to join a local CSA. A long time friend of my husband shared stories about the easy pickups at the Woods, the amazing quality of the fruits and vegetables, and of course the chance to meet other folks interested in healthy farm-fresh cooking. We were sold. The ability to choose from a variety of share packages of different sizes and prices has been very helpful, since our food budget took a hit when we made the transition to New York. This year, we chose the ‘Woods Deluxe’ package, which includes a full vegetable share & berry share and one dozen eggs and orchard share bi-weekly .

Member Diary #6: Danielle

We were delighted to find that the berry pick up this week was full of bright red, scrumptious little strawberries. Right away my wheels were turning with thoughts of what I might do  with them. I’m a pretty strict vegetarian (often vegan).  I recently convinced my boyfriend to try my eating lifestyle for 2 weeks even though he is about as carnivorous as you can get (we have the head of a boar that he shot and killed hanging in our office, enough said). Needless to say, those 2 weeks are up and he LOVED every moment of it and doesn’t see an end in sight… It’s such a silly assumption that meat makes a meal, as you’ll see below, strawberries and quinoa can fill you right up! Plus its meal packed full of Vit C, protein, iron and minerals! I decided to make Strawberry Banana Quinoa Muffins.  Continue reading
