CSA Bounty - week 1
So, the story continues......
last Friday was my first pick-up day for my produce delivery from the CSA Farm that I joined...see this post for more info on CSA's.
I had it marked on my calendar - I was SO excited to get it (do you see where this is going yet??)....well Sat morning about 11am...I am thinking about lunch and open the frig door to see what I might make. As I look at the lack of fruits & veggies I think to myself - "Wow, I really need to go to the market" at about that exact moment I come to the realization that I FORGOT to pick up my produce share on Friday! What the heck?!?!?
I quickly track down the phone number where I was supposed to pick it up - call them profusely apologizing & hop in the car to head over to get it! Egads - I would forget my head if it were not attached!
So....this is what we got with our first delivery!
Isn't it fresh! I quickly washed the lettuce & radishes and made an oh so yummy salad for lunch....
some lettuce, radish, chick peas, sugar snap peas, roasted potatoes, blue cheese stuffed green olives and a dijon vinagrette! I poured myself a glass of chilled white wine, disappeared into the dining room sans children and pretended I was in a small French bistro in the South of France enjoying a late lunch with friends! mmmmm I think I am going to like this CSA thing!!
