Here I am, getting fancy with a scheduled-post. Apologies for the slowness on replying to comments. I will be around to visit you all soon! I'm using italics!
Our first CSA basket of the season!
Last Saturday, we picked up our first CSA basket for this year! What's a CSA? Check out this post I wrote way-back-when for an explanation! It's basically a wonderful way to help local farmers, make yourself eat vegetables, and have a great supply of food!
This year we purchased a share with Beaverdam Creek Farm, because they deliver to the Franklin Farmer's Market, and we go there every Saturday morning. We received a lot of greens, some radishes, and --best of the best-- STRAWBERRIES! So tasty. We actually bought an extra container of the strawberries, and by the next day we'd eaten ALL of them. So sweet and fresh! I can't wait to see what vegetables we get next time, and especially as the weather warms up.
Receiving a CSA share really forces us to eat healthier, because we plan the week's menu around what vegetables we're receiving for the week, instead of planning around whatever's on sale at the grocery store or whatever we're craving-- a dangerous game!
Does anyone have any favorite ways to cook spinach and other leafy greens? I'm not big on salads, and it seems there aren't too many ways to eat them... Any yummy ideas?
