CSA Week 1

We bought a weekly CSA box (Community Supported Agriculture) from our local farm where each week we receive a box from about 50 different types of locally grown fruits and vegetables.  We have even received plants, Maple syrup, jam, and honey!

I started a Pintrest board to help inspire me with recipes and preparation ideas for the items in the box each week.

Here is our first week:
  • Chub Cucumbers
  • Onion
  • Lettuce
  • Romaine
  • Asparagus
  • Kohlrabi
  • Swiss Chard
  • Baby Red Potatoes
  • Herbs: Stevia, Tarragon, Rosemary, Dill
  • Radishes
  • Zucchini 
I love that I have no idea what some things are and research the veggies\herbs in each box and find fun recipes

Here is a picture of this week's items

I made Kohlrabi Fries for dinner, which were super good, I used the coconut oil as the recipe called for but used seasoned salt, chili power, and pepper spices.  It had a great kick and I really like the Kohlrabi flavor, just wish they were a bit crispier.  I only used 2 so I have 1 more to play with this week!

For my lunch tomorrow I put together a salad using the green and yellow cucumbers, radishes, lettuce, and romaine.  Pretty simple, nothing fancy but should be delish.
