Well, we had our very first CSA pick-up yesterday!
J and I had physicals that afternoon, and there wasn’t much of the work day left after, so all four of us went to the farm.
We signed in and bagged our vegetables in a reusable bag. A bunch of this, a half-pound of that. We traded our collards for kale. We grabbed a pint container, trooped out to the field, and picked the strawberries that were part of our share. F was very interested in picking dandelions.
We came home needing to make dinner for 5 adults and 2 preschoolers. Though we had a fair number of veggies, we didn’t have enough of one (or it turns out, two) things that would feed so many. So I made flash-cooked kale with garlic scapes and some simply sauteed spinach. And a ton of rice and chicken thighs.
J kindly wrangled the dear, if slightly possessive, under-4 sweeties while I cooked in peace.
Then we threw together scratch brownies (slightly underdone, as usual) and served them after dinner with the field-fresh strawberries. Heaven!
Looking forward to bok choi and tatsoi this evening!
