CSA – Week 12

So many delicious vegetables this week!


Basil, it’s a different kind than I’ve gotten in the past. It’s a much stronger basil, I haven’t figured out what I want to make with it yet.


Corn, only 4 ears this week, it’s so delicious!


Cherry tomatoes. These are so good!


Potatoes, these are always easy to eat up. My kids love baked potatoes.


Tomatoes, lots of tomatoes this week!


Red torpedo onions, these are super strong and so tasty once cooked.


More Japanese Eggplant. Not really a winner around here, but I am finding things to make with them.


And, peppers, or “apples” according to my 2yr old. Who also likes to eat them like apples. I guess it’s a good way for him to get his veggies!

CSA – Week 10

This week’s csa box has some super tasty vegetables!


Red onions again. These are so delicious!


Eggplant. I’m not very good at cooking with this vegetable, but I love the color of it.


Carrots. Lots of little carrots, this was probably the last of them for a while.


Basil, I have plenty in my freezer already I’m thinking that I’ll try dehydrating some and see how they turn out.


I’m excited about corn. We love corn and haven’t had it in our box yet.


Cucumbers. I’m thinking I’ll make more pickles!


Cherry tomatoes. They’re so yummy!


CSA – Week 9


Another delicious week of vegetables. There was a lot of variety this week!


Such a yummy CSA this week, starting with parsley. Because you can never have too much parsley. I love adding it to foods!


Peppers, red and yellow. My 2yr old insists on calling them apples. And he’s more than happy to just take a bite out of them!


These are calledĀ red torpedo onions and they look delicious! Every time I look at them I want to eat them.


Beets, I made another batch of pickled beets this week. My 6yr old likes them.


Green beens. You can have too many of these (if you’ve ever had too many bean plants you know what I’m talking about) but it’s really hard because they’re so delicious.


Kale – I love kale, but my family does not share my like šŸ™


Celery. This organic, local celery is so flavorful. It has way more flavor than what you get at your grocery store. I’m just amazed.


I decided to make potstickers the other day. I was greatly surprised at how easy they are to make!

I made about 50 of them for around $5 which is way cheaper than buying them frozen from the grocery store. I’m planning to make them again and freeze some for using in soup later.

I did purchase the wrappers but the rest I mixed up from scratch from a recipe from Food Network. I did make a few alterations but I think the original would be great as well! I used beef instead of pork, onions instead of scallions, and green peppers instead of red peppers because I happened to have these on hand already.

They tasted great in this dipping sauce!
