CSA Delights

Ok, since I haven't blogged in almost a year, I decided to at least blog about my CSA (community shared agriculture) which gives me tons of lovely produce every week.

Last week I got lettuce, arugula, carrots, scallions, red cabbage, yellow wax beans, 3 pounds of apples, 2 pounds of peaches and 1 pound of teeny plums. For two people, that's a lot of food.

Well, I ended up making Thai chicken curry with the beans and some cole slaw with the cabbage and carrots and scallions. A whole cabbage is much bigger than it appears. I think we still have a cup of the cole slaw. Amazingly, we seem to have finished the fruit--I gave a few apples to friends, R. made some peach smoothies, and I made an apple pie to take to a barbeque. It was a frozen crust and I didn't realize it wasn't supposed to be thawed so it ended up a little weak but next time I'll make a real crust.

We still have a lot of salad left and today's CSA day but we don't get any more salad this time around so that's good. And I'm feeling a little less inspired this week about cooking. I think the cole slaw wore me out last week.
