Great CSA Delivery

I think this week’s CSA delivery was the best one so far. Here is what we got:

And here is what I’m planning to do with the fruits and veggies:
  • Tangerines – eat as is
  • Pears – eat as is
  • Baby Bok Choy – stir fry, probably with mushrooms
  • Savoy Cabbage – I love to slice it thinly and marinate it a bit in salad dressing. I have used TJ’s Goddess dressing before, but I’ll make one of my one dressings this time.
  • Avocadoes – I love avocado on dark, crusty, whole grain bread, but the toddler already spotted the avocados and declared that they are his!
  • Butternut Squash – I think I’ll make some butternut squash soup.
  • Cauliflower – I’ll make smashed cauliflower with cheese and herbs.
  • Red Leaf Lettuce and Red Radishes – They will marry and make a nice salad tonight!
  • Leeks – I'll make some more leek soup.
  • Red Norland Potatoes – Not sure yet, but it may be time for eggs again potatoes...
Question: What are you cooking/eating/drinking/baking this weekend?
Be well,

    great batch of produce!
    I'm cooking with meat with radish~ another traditional chinese winter dish~

  5. Wow - that produce looks very fresh! I like what you're planning to do with it all too :-). As for me, I'm eating at Pita Pit tomorrow!

  6. your CSA box is totally gorgeous.

  7. Oh I wish I could join a CSA! pretty sure there's none in my area though :( haha I'm jealous of all your pretty produce. yum!

  8. Nothing beats a boxful of fresh produce.

  9. Looks like a great delivery. I should seriously check into my local CSA groups!

  10. Wow, what a great delivery. I am so jealous. It all looks great and I love your plans for all of it. This weekend, and I think you already know, we made cream of broccoli soup with the bread bowls. We may do bagels again to day but I don't know. Ryan was also talking about making pizza on his new pizza stone since the pizza final got here yesterday.

  11. Oh that does look like a great delivery!

  12. Yep, I would have to say this is the best CSA delivery I've ever seen. I mean, you got avocado and butternut squash!! Wow, the difference between California and Ohio is huge. Obviously....

    This weekend I'm not doing much cooking. I did make fajita turkey burgers last night though, and they were actually REALLY good!

  13. Your bok choy is so pretty! It never gets to Indiana looking quite that good but I can live with that. Love hearing what you'll do with everything. Ina Garten had a CSA box she was dealing with on her show yesterday!

  14. Oh wow what a great delivery!

    I had my very first green monster today... I think I am going to bake some gluten free cupcakes or cookies.. I can't decide.. lol..

  15. oh my gosh...your last two farmer's market + CSA posts = lovely. there is just something about the vibrancy and color of fresh produce that makes me happy. seriously. just gorgeous!

    and i love your menu plan for the week - leek soup is one of my faves! potato leek soup = even better. have a great weekend dear andrea!!!!

  16. WOW! You did a great job shopping! Sounds like you have some great plans for these veggies.

    No baking for me. It's been so crazy that we haven't been to the grocery store in ages... plans are to go today!

  17. What a beautiful bounty of produce! I'll be making some pesto cod, baked eggplant, creamy bean n broccoli soup, flank steak salad... and a whole lot more the next few days.

    Wow! Great delivery indeed! Avocados and tangerines are favorites of mine, and you can never go wrong with stir fry or leek soup! I almost picked up some leeks this weekend, but there just aren't enough days in the week to have so many things on the menu! We're trying a turkey bolognese tonight and I made vegan fig muffins that were outstanding!

  19. What a great delivery! LOVE IT ALL!
    I am going to have to see about signing up for something like that!
    It's amazing!
    thanks for sharing!

  20. What a great delivery! The baby bok choy looks especially good. I just bought some yesterday that doesn't compare. I'll be using mine in some soup...

  21. Ahhh so this is your CSA box! You're right; you've got some good stuff in there! Love the baby bok choys and the butternut squash especially. Do you mind checking to see if that is the same company who gave us a pamphlet last night? :)
