On the Doorstep

Our first CSA box of the season arrived!



It was so much fun to see what was hiding under there - the box contained a bag of baby greens, a huge bunch of green swiss chard, red swiss chard, a GIANT head of romaine lettuce, half a daikon, one sweet beet, one red beet, 8 snow peas, a small bunch of mint and cilantro, seven stalks of rhubarb and two big green onions. For dinner we had a stirfry and for dessert, rhubarb crumble (as suggested by Sarah). I used slivered almonds instead of ground as that's what I had. The dish was really tart, but good! I would have loved to top it with a scoop of vanilla soy ice cream, but we were out :(

This week, we'll be eating LOTS of salad.

Beautiful box! CSA's are a wonderful thing.

I've always wanted to do this - sounds like such a great idea. Just wondering though, do you typically get the same stuff every time? We're not chard or beet eaters in this house, so your particular assortment would probably go unused. I'm going to look into it though.

I love CSA's, and yours looks/sounds great!
