We picked up our bag in Beachwood yesterday. Some weeks, it’s just more convenient for us. I love the colors in this week’s bag.
Here’s what we were expecting to receive:
- 1 dozen pasture raised chicken eggs
- 1 piece Havarti from Mayfield Road Creamery (8 oz.)
- 2 ct. zucchini or squash
- 1 bunch carrots or 1 bunch beets (switching from last week)
- 1 lb. whole wheat linguini
- 6 ears sweet corn
- 1 lb green beans
- 1-2 bulb onions depending on size
- 1 lb. apricots
- 2 lbs. peaches
- Approx. 1.5 lbs. tomatoes
- 1 pint mixed color cherry tomatoes
- 1 pint blueberries
We were missing our blueberries. I’m hoping to stop by Mayfield today and pick them up. We are a bit overstocked on eggs at the moment. My niece and nephew are coming next week and they love eggs, so I think it will all even out. I packed some of the tomatoes in Stephen’s lunch this morning. I doubt any will be left by tomorrow.
I’m actually keeping up with onions. These are the only two that we have in our fridge. I’m guessing they will just be used in regular cooking this week. I’m hoping to grill zucchini for dinner tomorrow.
These tomatoes will probably be made into tomato béchamel sauce for our pasta. It’s convenient that we received carrots this week too.
Peaches and apricots disappear around here quickly. Nick likes to do a magic trick where the apricot turns into a pit. If there are any left tomorrow, we’ll grill some with our zucchini.
Everyone in our house loves cheese, so there’s never a need to figure out a plan. The pasta will be an easy meal for lunch on Sunday with the sauce.
The beans will make a good side dish for dinner tonight, along with the corn.
I’ve also been buying yogurt and milk from the truck. Between the CSA and the extras, our fridge is packed today. It sure beats shopping at the grocery store.
