Fresh Box is Back!

May 21, 2014

Our CSA from Dreyer Farms is finally here! We are so excited to have fresh local produce again! I feel like we learned a lot from last summer’s program. We learned that we actually really enjoy a lot more produce that we never would have considered buying before (bak choy, collard greens, and even kohlrabi). I have to admit while we tried new things it was sometimes overwhelming and we did end up skipping weeks and giving things away.

We really have missed getting our beautiful box of fresh produce every week through the winter. They say absence makes the heart grow fonder, but in this case I think it made me more determined. Determined to not throw away, give away, or let things spoil in the fridge. Determined to meal plan for the week accordingly and enjoy the local seasonal produce that we have each week.

In an effort to keep myself on track this summer I have decided to try to post at least my meal plan for the week here.

So here we go for week one:
Asparagus
Romaine
Arugula
Tomatoes
Swiss chard
Radishes
Basil
Pizza dough

Here is our meal plan for the week (We pick up our box on Tuesdays)

Tuesday : Grilled chicken, grilled asparagus, and radish apple carrot slaw.
Wednesday: chicken sausage, potatoes, and Swiss chard sautéed in white wine and garlice
Thursday: grilled chicken, tomato, mozzarella, and basil salad
Friday-Saturday: staying with friends, bringing our Romaine along
Sunday: Pizza with Arugula, Onions, prosciutto, Mozzarella, and balsamic glaze

Here’s a picture from our first dinner with our Produce:
