I'm going to be prepared this time!
First of all - a number of you are missing out! You've never had home-made carrot cake? You're missing out! I don't even like store-bought carrot cake because I always remember the yummy icing-less variety my mother made when I was a child.
From the CSA newsletter: What’s in the box this week? English Peas, Arugula, Green Onions, Chard, Kale, Turnips and Lettuces of various varieties.
I have prepared a grocery list (see picture for evidence!) and will actually make new and interesting meals using my very cool veggies this week! I am determined! We'll just call week one a flop as I wasn't prepared - the next 17 weeks will be better! CSA pick-up is literally next door to the grocery store I like - so I have no excuses.
Ok, so, menu plans for the week:
recipes from the CSA newsletter:
"Turnips and Onion Gratin" and "Green Tacos" (I'll post the recipe if they turn out well)
and recipes I found on my own will include: Arugula and Goat Cheese Pizza with pesto sauce, Arugula and goat cheese over penne pasta, Sweet and Savory Kale, Swiss Chard with Garbanzo Beans (note to self: add Garbanzo beans to grocery list.)
That leaves the peas. I'll probably just throw them into the Chard and Beans thing.
So here's hoping to a more successful CSA week #2!
