This week's CSA, a freebie, and what's for dinner?
Late posting this for this week, but here's my organic CSA share from Monday: 2 purple kholrabi, 2 lbs potaotes, celery, recipes, a head of garlic, a bunch of pea shoots, a quart container of green beans, 3 lbs Heirloom tomatoes, including my favorite: Black Krims!
Monthly cleaning service here yesterday presented me with the above air freshener from Yankee Candle as a thank you for continuing to use their service, in celebration of our 2 year anniversary. Attached was a hand written card. Nice touch.
Supper tonight is a continued pantry/freezer clean out/eat down. Joining 2 households had lead to some overages, but we are actively addressing that. A mixed berry crisp was baked off last night, using the table top convection oven. Dinner menu tonight: oven roasted chicken drums and thighs, canned French beans, buttered "garden" fettucini with herb seasoning, a large tossed salad with choice of dressing.
