CSA Box and Menus

We picked up our second weekly CSA box on Friday. More good stuff!

  • tomatoes
  • several varieties of salad greens
  • lemon
  • plums and nectarines
  • apricots
  • green beans
  • strawberries

From what I understand, we are really lucking out in the fruit department. Several of my friends who use different CSAs in our area get very little fruit.

Friday I made a tomato cream sauce with pasta with the tomatoes from our box.

We had grilled apricot sundaes for dessert last night. Delicious!

And these yummy green beans (with bacon):

Tonight we'll have a salad with the greens and some bell pepper and maybe some fresh herbs from my garden. And the plums, nectarines and remaining apricots for dessert.

Wednesday we'll be having brasied red cabbage (a recipe from our cruises which The Mr really likes).

And then we'll be out of fruits and veggies again! Can't wait until our own tomatoes and peppers are ready to harvest!

  1. Yeah, you are really lucky to get so much fruit. So what are you going to do with the Lemon??
