Great Basin Basket CSA, Autumn Week 2 (10/10/13)
This week’s goodies are definitely feeling more like the autumn harvest. And, I’m loving it!
What did we get? (All organic) acorn squash, mixed greens, early girl tomatoes, mixed peppers, green leaf lettuce, shallots, popcorn on the cob, thyme, radishes from River Bend Farms, onions from Peri & Sons, potatoes from Workman Farms and broccoli from Nevada Fresh Pak
Just look at the popcorn on the cob! The instructions said to let it continue to dry until Christmas. Last year, we just put it in a brown paper bag and microwaved it. Fun!
Radishes, have I told you lately that I love you? I do.
This is the first time I have seen broccoli from Nevada Fresh Pak. It looks good!
The newsletter/instruction sheet this week has some great recipe ideas so look forward to seeing some posts about roast beef and veggies, maybe some broccoli soup and definitely a stuffed baked acorn squash. I’m feeling all chef-like so I think I might even try my hand as some hot sauce. Spicy!
What are you plans for this week?
