Fun with Food in 2016

This summer Jess and I have purchased a share in a CSA (community supported agriculture) and we’re already two boxes in. Already we’re really enjoying the variety in food. I’ve liked the challenge of using unfamiliar foods (like Komatsuma) and building out new meals around them.

Each week we get a list what’s going to be in our box, here’s what last week’s included:

  • Garlic scapes
  • Head lettuce, “Grandpa Admire”
  • Kale
  • Radishes
  • Salad Mix
  • Scallions
  • Strawberries

Good stuff for salads this week, though the garlic scapes inspired an interesting pasta dish. We also made a pizza (on the grill) which included some of the kale. The boxes will have more stuff as we get into the season further, but this has been a nice way to start out. I’m excited to see what comes this week!
