Weekly CSA Love

We got our first CSA delivery last week. Unfortunately we also had a pretty sick and miserable three year old on our hands so I forgot to tell you about it. It was a pretty slim box, salad greens and a few green onions.

But this week, THIS week, there were...

I love our CSA. Love it.

Especially when they deliver beautiful strawberries like these. So big, juicy and flavorful.

We also got:
  • Kale: Rainbow Lacinato
  • Salad Greens: Ruby Red Lettuce
  • Green Onions
  • Strawberry Rhubarb
  • Fresh Mint
Yum, yum!

Here are a few recipes I am thinking of trying with this week's bounty:

Sour Cream and Onion Kale Chips
Kale Salad
Minty Ice Cubes
Place 1-3 mint leaves in each cell of an ice cube tray. Fill with cold water and freeze. Or if you want a stronger mint flavor, fill with boiling water. Let cool and then freeze. Makes a nice minty addition to water, lemonade, ice tea or adult beverages. ;)

And of course lots of salads! Maybe with homemade Strawberry Balsamic Dressing. Oh who am I kidding, those strawberries will be gone before the morning!
