I have thought about joining a CSA since last summer when I started reading so many good things on other food blogs. I did a google search and found one near me. The only thing is that I have decide if I am going to do all three seasons, or just pick one season to see if I like it.
UPDATED: This is what a CSA is, for those who might not know 😀
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) has become a popular way for consumers to buy local, seasonal food directly from a farmer. Here are the basics: a farmer offers a certain number of “shares” to the public. Typically the share consists of a box of vegetables, but other farm products may be included. Interested consumers purchase a share (aka a “membership” or a “subscription”) and in return receive a box (bag, basket) of seasonal produce each week throughout the farming season.
My inclination is to choose the “summer” season, because I know tomatoes will be in the offering and I will can a lot of salsa and pasta sauce for the winter. The “spring” season offers “plants and produce.” I am not good with plants, I kill just about anything that enters my house. The “fall” season offers produce and pumpkins.
Which season would you pick, or would you pick all three?
I just threw stuff in a bag this morning and this is what I’ve come up with. Two chicken tacos with red peppers, a 1.5 cup of tomato soup and apples and grapes. Not very exciting – I know!
We are going out for sushi tonight – Tony saw my menu board and saw that tonight I had planned on making beef and broccoli with shrimp wonton soup and quickly stated that he would be out of town on Thursday! I suggested sushi and both Tony and Hannah were a bit too quick to ditch the menu board! I can freeze the beef for another use.
Both of my co-workers could not shred at lunch today, so I decided to switch it up. Since my lazy a$$ didn’t get up this morning, I did 45 minutes of walking/running on the treadmill at lunch, and then plan to do shred tonight either before we go to dinner, but most likely after dinner. I need to earn my sticker!!
See you after sushi!
