What? Another food blog? Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!
Deal with it.
Everyone pretty much knows that participating in a CSA is awesome. Right? I mean, you get to support small-scale local agriculture. It encourages you to eat locally. You get to try new awesome produce that maybe you’ve never even seen before. It’s an awesome way to incorporate more vegetables into your diet, which as we all know, is good for you.
The only problem with a CSA share is that… well, it makes making dinner kind of hard. It involves a lot of meal planning and recipe research to use all that stuff before it goes bad. And you never know what you are going to get. You might get 16 rutabagas. And who wants to eat that every night?
So that is my challenge. I get a nice new shiny box of veggies every two weeks and I am making it my goal to eat it all, and to do so in an interesting and delicious manner. With the help of my husband, of course. He has to eat the shit I make, too. Marriage is a partnership, after all. Anyway, I’ll take pictures of it and tell you what I did with it, too. Just in case you care. And maybe, in the process, I’ll learn something.
In case you happen to be in the Pittsburgh/Western Pa area and are interested, I have participated in shares from both Clarion River Organics and Penn’s Corner Farm Alliance and would highly recommend either!
Oh, and it actually comes in a bag, not a box. So I truly was just being crass when I named this blog. Stay tuned for much more crassness.
