What’s in the Box? Week Nine of the CSA Spring Subscription
Oh sweet lord of the veggies … you heard my prayers. There is a new mushroom in my CSA box this week! Can you see it all pretty in its little corsage box? I can’t wait to get this bad boy home.
Can you believe this is Week Nine already? Only one more week left of the “Spring Subscription” and then we have a no-box week over the 4th of July. I’m looking forward to the “Summer” boxes and, of course, THE FRUIT SUBSCRIPTION. I know a little boy at my house that is pretty excited about that, too.
This week’s box includes:
gourmet lettuce mix, braising mix, carrots, green garlic, swiss chard, beets, basil, zucchini, cucumbers, broccoli, arugula and (aaaa-AAAA-AAAAAHHH!) a box of Hiratake mushrooms from Sierra’s Edibles. I haven’t been out to the Sierra Edibles Farm but it might be worth the drive to Wellington, NV, to check it out … Google that one. Wellington is in the boonies!
Cucumbers! Yum! Once again, I was ridiculously giddy when I picked up the CSA box and the volunteer indulged me by sharing her veggie stories. Apparently, she is a big fan of lemon cucumbers, too. (Seriously, I have found my people here. I LOVE LEMON CUCUMBERS!) And, when my eyes lit up, she confirmed that there were lemon cucumbers in the CSA boxes last year. OHMYCUKES! I can’t wait.
Broccoli! There is a really tasty looking recipe for a chicken broccoli stuffed bread that I am thinking that will suit my family just fine. Nom.
Any one love cucumbers and broccoli as much as me? Any good recipes you are dying to share? I love all of the comments and feedback that people have posted so let me know!
