This is my sharemate and I’s inaugural year with the Southside CSA and the Bridge share is the highlight of our Mondays. One us is from a ranch on the West Coast and the other is related to the head of Slowfood USA so we were thrilled to find such an awesome option in NYC. Despite the heat wave last week, we had our oven roaring and put together some fantastic dishes including walnut zucchini bread, a salad with roasted leeks and potatoes and roasted kale and beet quinoa.
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.
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).
Jenny named our share Vlad, after her cat. There are four of us in the share, and every
Monday we ride our bikes to the Woods, divide up the produce, and cheers another hard
earned week of veggies.
So, apparently Ryan and Yo made some amazing blueberry-rosemary jam last week. I was green with envy and so decided to try it out myself. This is totally their recipe y’all – I am fully admitting that up front.<!

A bit about my eating habits — I’m a vegetarian with strong vegan tendencies. My exeption to the vegan rule is the eggs from the CSA. The way I see it…if the chickens have names, they’re probably pretty happy…so the eggs are ‘happy eggs’. Continue reading
