CSA 2014-final Spring pick up

Today was the last of my extended season, aka "Spring" CSA pick ups. Today's haul: rhubarb (now baked into a mixed fruit crisp with about to go off strawberries, some fzn blueberries from Dollar Tree, 2 apple oatmeal packets substituted for my usual plain oats used in the oat topping); 2 Spring garlic, purple scallions, 1/2 doz eggs, salad turnips, a bag of "braising greens"-a mix of Kales; a bag of mixed baby salad greens, a jar of their medium salsa that they produce from the farm and can, a ham steak (they usually charge $16/lb!). Very pleased with this week's share, nice to see more and more coming.

We have a week off, then the Summer share will begin. I continue to look forward to it.

Tonight's supper for 2: sloppy joes (using the rest of some sauce that I froze; I buy double sized cans, decant 1/2 and freeze for another time. At $1.09/can this is a bargain, and is made by Stokleys-a good brand), using Aldi's ground fzn turkey, a salad of baby salad greens, grated carrot, sliced salad turnips, chopped cuke, choice of dressing. May bake off some tater tots or onion rings.

You do receive some very interesting bundles from this CSA. The salad turnips would be difficult to find in a regular supermarket, as would the purple scallions.
