CSA To The Rescue

Well, as I mentioned before, it’s time to eat a bit healthier again. I have focused on fresh fruits and veggies and healthy proteins over the last few days.

Yesterday’s lunch was Romaine lettuce and arugula with tomatoes, avocado and wild salmon.

CSA Rescue 02

And today we got our CSA delivery:

CSA Rescue 01
  • Melon
  • Avocado
  • Plums
  • Nectarines
  • Carrots
  • Cauliflower
  • Tomatoes
  • Corn
  • Radishes
  • Leaf Lettuce
  • Cucumber
  • Onion
Today’s dinner will incorporate many of the veggies in our CSA box. We’ll have corn, a salad with leaf lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, radishes, and avocado, and some organic sausages we picked up at the Farmers’ Market (actually, I think the sausages will be only for the guys…).

Question: What are you having for dinner? What are your plans for the weekend?
Be well,


  1. Yummy! Tonight for dinner: wild sweet shrimp tossed with wholewheat pasta, olive oil, garlic, spinach, and broccoli.

    This weekend...I fear a tough workout is ahead ;)

  2. I really miss cooking dinner! Living in a hotel has me eating out (ordering out) every night. I am living vicariously through your post right now. I go home tomorrow and I hear we have kale that has come in! We have our own farmers market growing in our back yard. Nick is actually more excited about it than me, if that's even possible.

  3. I love looking at your CSA box! There is one at a local farm that I recently found and I'm thinking of joining. I think it would be fun to get my surprise box of fruits and veggies!

    This weekend - dining room makeover....gotta get to work... :(

  4. sorry I've been absent.. vie been getting crashed out over here. that makes me sooooooo frustrated, ESP since I dint have time at night to comment.

    I get an email alert when you post so I can still read


    yay for c/a boxes

  5. Great CSA delivery! We just popped a chicken on the BBQ for dinner. I'm gonna make some quinoa and a salad, too. Have a great weekend!

  6. I would love some salmon right now. The British fried fish and chips just doesn't cut it for me when I'm craving fresh seafood!

    I am still jealous over your CSA loot - nothing I ever got looked remotely that good.

    I am done cooking for a while! My husbands family was over for a bbq, so I am pooped from being in the kitchen. Everything turned out great so I am happy with that! :D

    Hope you are having a great weekend!

  8. ooh your CSA box sounds lovely. I would love some fresh nectarines...and throw some under the grill, too, for a lovely grilled peach sandwich. :-)

  9. Hm, you're salmon salad looks GREAT and your box of veggies, YUMMY!!!

    Tonight for dinner: Spaghetti Squash, Salmon Belly, Roasted Green Beans & Fennel, Raw Spinach & Nori Sheets!

  10. There is such a great variety of fruits and vegetables in your CSA box this week. Everything looks great.

  11. what a great CSA loot - i'd be happy to get any of that stuff!

  12. csa delivery looks great!and the wild yummy!

  13. Awesome CSA score. Whatever we have for dinner is going to be loaded with veggies. I've eaten so much junk since dad has been in town that my body is screaming for greens.

  14. Oooh, nice CSA delivery! I don't do that but I went and bought a bunch of veggies yesterday because I too have to start eating healthy again. ;) Whatever I eat for dinner, you better believe it will have lots of veggies!

  15. I'm craving a nectarine so badly!

    I had a muffin for dinner. Okay, I lied. I had two muffins for dinner. Oof. Tomorrow I'll get back to eating my greens ;)

  16. Plums, nectarines and corn. It doesn't get much better than that. Summer is so great for good eats, isn't it?

    As for me? We're doing beer-can chicken on the grill, Yukon Golds cooked alongside, and a big, leafy salad with avocado, fennel, and radishes.

  17. What a great delivery you got! I'm still a little bit jealous because we have nothing like that around here.

  18. All that food looks great! It makes me really want to find a CSA around me. I think we have one, but I haven't checked into it too closely yet.

  19. Your CSA boxes always look great! I have no food in the house, so I'm not sure what I'm having for dinner tonight.

  20. your CSA boxes always look SO GOOD! we don't get fun things like plums, nectarines and avocado around here, so i am INSANELY jealous of that. sounds like a great start to a healthy week!

    also, i plan on having black bean millet patties tonight - looking forward to it!!!!

  21. Wow, amazing your delivery...I think I am cooking some pasta for dinner :-)

  22. On Friday the day of this post we went out to dinner. Tonight, Monday I am making a light pasta dish with chicken and broccoli.
