Today was our third pick up for the Fresh Fork CSA.  We were expecting the following items.

Small CSA:

  • 1 lb grassfed ground beef
  • 1 qt organic strawberries
  • Approx 1.5 lbs slicing tomatoes
  • 1 head leaf lettuce
  • 1 bag (16 oz) corn chips
  • 1 bunch green onions
  • 1 bunch cilantro
  • 1-2 zucchini
  • 1 bunch field grown spinach (braising greens)
  • 1 half gallon milk

Here is what we received.






Update on last week:  We didn’t blanch any radishes, so we need to use them up.  We haven’t used our eggs or spelt berries yet.  The sausage ended up in a quinoa salad dish.  I’ll be posting that recipe this weekend.  I think everything else was enjoyed.

Here’s our plan of attack for this week:

The strawberries were made into jam this evening.  The milk we’ll enjoy with our cereals.  The spinach is going into a Camembert cheese pasta dish.  Most of the other items will be part of a Mexican themed dinner and I’ll freeze the left over cilantro if needed.  A few of my cubes from last week were used as part of the liquid for quinoa and it was delicious.  I haven’t decided about the zucchini yet.

  1. I grilled our zucchini from last week. Yum!

    • We didn’t get zucchini last week, but we have it now. Grilling it sounds great! I just invited my parents up for a meal this weekend, so I’ll have to figure out what to make.
