So no, this is not my CSA box, because I was mostly through organizing mine before I thought "oh, I should have taken a photo."


We got our first box this week from our new CSA folks (it's been just over a year since we've done it) and we got green beans, bok choy, basil, tomatoes, onion, jalapenos, potatoes, radishes, grapes, honey dew, squash, and eggplant (that last one is considered the devil by my dh, so we ever so kindly gave them to friends).

I am excited to 1) begin to actually learn what grows in what seasons, and eat appropriately, 2) eat fruits and veggies that I know are local and organic and 3) introduce my children to things they may not otherwise eat and find with them fun recipes to use.

I have already cut up the basket of cherry tomatoes and roasted them slowly with olive oil and salt. (smell. so. good.) They are in the fridge awaiting a tomato/basil/pasta dish that will be made this week!

And tonight - we make SALSA! yay!

I've heard of the CSA veggie thing, but we have such a tiny family. . .
And we ALL agree with your DH-- Eggplant is of the devil :)
