I knew going into CSA season it might be a little tricky come vacation time. I was correct. No post last week since I didn’t really have enough to post about! And I may or may not be posting this five days after writing it due to my novice editing skills (and frustrations).
Week 3 haul:
- Yellow Squash
- Red Leaf Lettuce
This week proved to be a little challenging with the holiday weekend and long work days that left me not feeling very creative for dinner. I did find a great recipe for curly kale, though! I didn’t get too creative last year with looking for kale recipes so I’m happy to have found a delicious use for it it.
Received Week 2:
- Green Leaf Lettuce (1 head)
- Curly Kale
- Radishes – 2 heads
- Swiss Chard – large bunch
- Spring Onions
- 6 zucchinis (slightly smaller than first week)
- Arugula – large bunch
So, I’m not really good at blogging which is pretty obvious from my lack of any sort of consistent posting. But I’ve been inspired with the start of the CSA season!

This rice was appointed into the top three of the hubs’ favorite homemade dishes. So I thought it is absolutely necessary to share. I really love eating rice and pasta, specifically, but hate how bloated I feel after. I saw this recipe and thought it would fit perfectly into our repertoire because of our love of fried rice. I also adapted the recipe to what we had on hand, and hope to add more veggies next time we make it. There will certainly be a next time.
