Produce, Flowers, and Toddler Activities

Sorry for the sporadic posts lately. I hope to get back to a more consistent schedule soon. Here are a few updates…

We received another CSA delivery:

CSA Feb 01

Here is what we got and what I’ll use it for:
  • Apples - eat
  • Oranges – eat
  • Pears – eat
  • Lemons – salad dressing & juice
  • Broccoli – steamed
  • Collard Greens – sautéed
  • Butternut Squash – soup
  • Baby Bok Choy – sautéed
  • Butter Lettuce – salad with radishes
  • Carrots – raw with hummus
  • Parsley – I was excited to see the parsley, which is kind of funny as I used to seriously dislike parsley when I was younger. I’ll use the parsley to make parsley potatoes, a dish my mom used to make often when I was little (and I would always try to pick out ALL the parsley…).
  • Fingerling Potatoes
  • Banana Potatoes
Hubby picked up these beautiful daffodils while he was shopping at Trader Joe’s. Thank you, hubby! :-)

Finally, here are a few of the toddler’s new favorite things…

Questions: Is there an herb, spice, or vegetable you didn’t used to like but now like? As I mentioned above, I used to seriously dislike parsley but now enjoy it very much. I also didn’t like beets and olives but now like them a lot.
Be well,
