Born in the CSA - Our First Box of Organics

Remember way back when, when summer was just a hazy glimmer on the horizon and I announced to my negative 3 blogmates (things have gotten better since then - thank you, loyal readers) that I had joined a CSA? Well, I am proud to announce: It's A Vegetable! Many of them in fact.

This afternoon around 2:30 my intrepid share sharer Cafe de Dulce and I went to pick up our box o' stuff. That's Cafe demonstrating the proper form for oogling over boxes of fresh produce from Even' Star Organics.


We managed to take home in our organic haul:

Leeks
Seven sugar snap peas (er, scratch that - two eaten in car on way home)
Baby heirloom lettuce
Kale
Four mini-turnips
Rapa
A nice herb blend.

This evening I simmered the kale with some olive oil and garlic and topped it off with some balsamic vinegar. The kids wouldn't touch the stuff, but hey...more for me.

Oh, and note to self: use of hair clip on back of head...not so nice.
