What's For Dinner? Plus the First Week of Our CSA!

What's For Dinner Graphic

Tonight we're going to have pasta. Jamison and Alexis will have spaghetti and I'm going to make a fresh pasta topper for me. Alexis and I will also have a mixed salad.

Update: 3:52 PM: OK, I didn't realize we're out of ground beef. I tried to sell Jamison on ground chicken for the spaghetti sauce, but he wasn't convinced. So we're going to have steaks, baked potatoes and roasted asparagus instead!

What are you having?

CSA Week One

Now let's talk about what we got from our CSA the first week!

The first pick up gave us two types of lettuce, some dandelion greens, spinach and a bunch of asparagus. They also gave Jamison the handy dandy tote you see in the back of the picture so he can use it to pick up our future shares. There was also a copy of Edible Chesapeake. How cool is that?

For lunch I made a big salad with the greens, lettuce and spinach. I'm going to use some of the asparagus and spinach in my pasta topper tonight and of course the greens/lettuce for the salad. Funnily Alexis has been wanting to try dandelion greens for a while now, but since I don't know the history of our yard since we've been here for less than a year I wouldn't let her just try them out of our yard in case the people who lived here before us were big pesticide or herbicide fans. So now she'll get to try them! Fun, fun!

Local and organic...How much better can it get? I can't wait to see what next week will bring!

Which CSA did you end up joining?

It's the one in the town where Jamison works. He can pick it up on the way home from work since he's planning to actually go in on Mondays during the summer.

Hamburg steak and salad - no carbs. I've got one more day of this and I get to have them again!

Is this to jump start??

Yep...I hate it, but it does work. I think I have a carb and sodium addiction!

We're looking at getting a CSA share soon. I'm interested to see how you like yours.

That's awesome! I can't wait for ours to start. I think we still have a few weeks.

This is the first year I've done a CSA. I'm looking forward to it!
