One of the best things about my CSA box coming every two weeks is that the amount is perfect to get me through exactly two weeks! I typically leave the vegetable items home for dinners, and I take the fruits to work to eat with lunch. I got lucky in finding the perfect sized box on my first try, and it’s an important quality to note…..too much food and I’d end up wasting a lot; too little and I’d feel stretched over the two weeks. If you’re not happy with the size of your CSA box don’t get discouraged, I’m sure your farm has other options!
I was pleasantly surprised this week to find that I knew every item in my CSA box! That was a first….although, as I anticipated last time, I did get some more carrots in a completely different size than the last two boxes. Who knew all of these varieties existed??
My favorite item in the box is bulb fennel; I’ve never had it! I’m excited to try a new recipe with it, supposedly it’s highly aromatic and flavorful….yummy. Any recommendations??
Here are my fun contents in this box:
1 lb assorted tomatoes
1 lb assorted potatoes
4 valencia oranges (perfect for juicing!)
3 hass avocados (a bit firm, but they’re ripening slowly)
1 summer squash
1 bulb fennel
1 bunched carrot
1 bunched collard
1 head of leaf lettuce
Do you have any fun recipes to share with these new fruits and veggies I received? Feel free to share!
