What's in the box?

Here's our box for the next week - I am very excited!

  • Fresh Garlic
  • Carrots
  • Navel Oranges from Good Humus Produce
  • Asparagus
  • Salad Mix
  • Potatoes
  • Chard
We already scarfed down the salad mix in what I call Big Salad - we tossed the greens with carrot (some of the leftover CSA carrots from last week), chickpeas, green onions, cranberries, cashews, dried onions, mozzarella, feta, and sliced orange. Yummmmm! Served with once slice of sourdough cheese toast (raclette cheese melts just beautifully - it's got enough fat that it displays a deep salty richness when melted). These greens are sturdy and a bit toothsome, but they are fresh as fresh can be. It is so exciting to think that they might have been picked and packed this morning, which is very different than the gas-inflated salad bags we used to buy too frequently at the grocery store. I am happy to say those bags are now only an occasional vice. Whizzing salad greens through my awesome Oxo salad spinner doesn't take much more than an extra minute or two - and the freshness of these greens is superior to anything you can get at the store. 100% worth it.

Green garlic

I've got a good idea for a potato and chard dish ... don't know how the asparagus is going to turn up on our table. But I bet it will be great.


Here's looking forward to another week of hearty, healthful meals that put a smile on our faces!
