Veggies, Sunshine, and the Beach

The weekend started off with a CSA box. Here is what we got:

  • Collard greens
  • Lettuce
  • Kale
  • Carrots
  • Potatoes
  • Oranges
  • Meyer Lemons
  • Apples
  • Onions
  • Mushrooms
As soon as we opened the box, the toddler declared that the carrots were his. And he wasn’t kidding…

I grew up in a very cold climate, so I feel very lucky to have lived in California for the past 20 years. In fact, one of my childhood dreams was to have a palm tree in my yard (which seemed very, very unlikely at the time…). Well, the palm tree in my yard never happened, but there are quite a few palm trees in my neighborhood. Anyway, we were lucky to enjoy fabulous weather over the weekend. Sunshine and 70 degrees. Today, we decided to head to the beach.

Questions: What was the climate like where you grew up? Did you ever dream of moving to a totally different climate? If so, did you ever make the dream come true? What’s the best thing you ate over the weekend? I really liked the Greek salad I had at the beach, but my favorite was the simple salad I made with the lettuce in our CSA box. And I also loved the kale chips I made with the kale from the box…

Be well,
