CSA Adventure: Week 4

Elijah and I were out of town all last week--hence the lack of blog posting--and I haven't had much time to think about the fresh produce we received from our CSA on Thursday. Lots of useful, yummy stuff, though. I need to get back into the meal-planning groove!

On another note, yesterday for lunch we enjoyed the chuck roast we received a week or two ago, and tried the recipe with ingredients provided in our share. It was just a little spicy and really good for something different (we usually use the same beloved roast recipe every time). I'm looking forward to using the leftovers for cheesesteak subs--hoping to make some good buns with my artisan bread recipe.

This week's bounty:
  • fresh herbs: basil (yay!) and what I *think* is dill
  • three heads of garlic
  • an onion
  • snow peas
  • lettuce
  • a bouquet of lavender
  • 2 pounds grass-fed ground beef
  • 6 farm-fresh eggs

You've inspired me. We're looking into a CSA around here. I gather living in the heart of Indiana there's bound to be something nearby.

Mel, check out LocalHarvest.org. Ours is brand-new this year so it's not listed there, but another one in our area is. Hope you find something!
