CSA day! 

Happy Friday! And happy spring! I recieved my monthly box of fruits and veggies from my local CSA today. It’s always fun to start with a box of ingredients, and work my meal planning for the week around those.   I’m signed up with Farm Fresh to You. I love that you can go online the week before and customize your box. This was the big selling point for me since I do have a small vegetable garden, and didn’t want to be receiving duplicates from a monthly CSA box of exactly what I was already harvesting. 

This week I recieved:

  • Purple fingerling potatoes
  • Red beets
  • Gold beets
  • Frisée
  • Carrots
  • Kohlrabi
  • Baby broccoli
  • French breakfast radishes
  • Avocados
  • Lacinto kale

I see a light frisée salad in my future for tonight’s dinner, perhaps with some oranges and avocado wedges and some shaved fennel, an appetizer of radishes with butter and salt (something I discovered I loved in Paris), and maybe some garlicky broccoli. 

If you’re local to San Diego and interested in trying out a CSA box, I highly recommend Farm Fresh to You. You can sign up for a box with my referral code: SHAN1223 and get $10 off of your first box. 

I hope you all enjoy some fresh spring veggies this week.

  2. I’ve always thought about trying a CSA to vary what I eat and get more creative, but I also have a terrible fear of new foods. Haha.
