Morning! Time for another CSA update.
Can you even handle how huge that turnip is?! We got it during week 4 or 5, and we’re STILL eating it. I don’t even love turnips that much.
Here’s what our stash has included in the past couple of weeks:
- Week 6: Blueberries, spring onions, lettuce, squash, cucumbers, potatoes, peppers, eggplant, basil, turnips, fennel, collards, rainbow chard, dill
- Week 7: Corn, cucumbers, squash, potatoes, spring onions, lettuce, peppers, eggplant, tatsoi, lemon balm, basil, kale, and green chard
All the deliveries are kind of starting to blend together since we usually have some ingredients that last beyond a week, and we’ve also been stopping in at the farmer’s market on the weekend to pick up anything extra (plus meat and fish). Let’s just say there is definitely not a shortage of veggies in our home! Here are some of our latest creations:
Stuffed zucchinis (probably a mix between this recipe and this recipe):
Summer squash, bell pepper, and chickpea salad:
Hummus crusted chicken with a side of farro, bok choy, and turnips:
Ground lamb, chard, and kale stuffed eggplant:
Zucchini and shrimp fritters over greens:
Grilled mango and blueberry kale salad:
An easy cucumber salad with dill, inspired from our Veggietecher lunch at work:
Tropical kale smoothies (I’ve been adding 2 scoops of vanilla protein powder to this recipe)
Grilled haddock with a corn and tomato salsa, potatoes with onions, garlic, and parsley, and roasted zucchini/squash with dill:
Grain free zucchini muffins:
Grilled plum salad with cherry tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, and pine nuts over lettuce with a homemade citrus dressing made of lemon balm and orange:
Some fun meals, huh? The delivery we got yesterday might be my favorite yet though! Will share soon. 🙂
What have you been eating lately? Do you like turnips? Any recipe requests from this post?
For more on my summer 2014 CSA experience:
I’ve never been part of a CSA before, but the more I read about them, the more intrigued I am. Does the farm you use do subscriptions all year long, or is it mostly for the summer?
The farm I get my CSA through is called Heaven’s Harvest Farm in New Braintree, MA. I get my delivery right to work through my company’s wellness program, but I know they deliver all over the state. They have four different seasonal sign up options, so if you are interested in a fall one, check them out!
fun meals for sure! this summer has been hard to find the time to make any “real” meals… keeping it simple due to the lack of time!
I saw your post on simple meals! I am lucky to have Tim to help me out during my busiest weeks. 🙂
