CSA Week 2

This week our CSA was a little less greens heavy and a little more veggie heavy which I am happy about.  I love my greens but due to the heat last week they didn’t last very long which meant rather than getting cooked up or put in a salad they were juiced.

This weeks share:

Red Bibb Lettuce

Dino Kale



I haven’t experimented with kohlrabi that much but in the past we have had it raw in salads, cooked up in stir fries and in this root vegetable curry dish.

Snap Peas

Garlic Scapes

I love to make pesto with garlic scapes and I plan on making a nice big batch tomorrow.

Recipes: Zucchini Pesto Quinoa Pie | Baked Green Tomatoes with Cashew-Pea Pesto

Garlic Scape Pesto Pasta with Zucchini

Summer Squash

I am a huge fan of summer squash.  I like to keep it simple and just saute or roast with a little olive oil, salt and pepper but sometimes I like to get a little more creative and make dishes like my recipe for my Italian Almond Tart


Recipe: Cucumber & Tomato Salad with Balsamic Shallot Reduction

Green Garlic

If you haven’t stop over to our family blog, Naturally Family, then head over now and Meet The Family.  This week we have been discussing my pregnancy ups and downs, pregnancy eats, buying for baby on a budgetattachment parenting and a so much more. Also don’t forget to enter the baby pool– will BabyRWT be a boy or a girl?

CSA Week 1

Today marks the first week of our CSA and I am so excited to show you our goodies and hopefully a few recipes over the next week. This year we decided to do a different CSA, unlike ones in the past where we sign up and get whatever they have to give us that week, we actually get to choose our produce. On Sunday night we can log-in into the CSA website and choose 10 items from the list they provide.

This week we chose to get:

Dino Kale

Red Kale

Green Kale

Rainbow Chard


Lettuce, but requested cucumbers (more on that below)


Snap Peas

Summer Squash


We had originally requested cucumbers but since it was most likely a popular item we didn’t end up getting our first choice and were given our second choice of more greens- in this case lettuce.  The other great thing about our CSA is that after you make your choices you can purchase additional items (if available).

The plan for our CSA goodies is to saute or roast the zucchini and summer squash, saute the snap peas in a recipe and cook up or juice the greens.
