More time to enjoy our day and our meals!
By: Deborah Nardozzi (Jan 15, 2011)
I've wanted to be a part of a CSA for a few years now and I finally got my husband talked into the "extra expense." After completing the first 10 weeks and currently starting our second season he now sees that we save money each week on groceries. There are so many wonderful things I'd like to tell readers about this CSA:
*Grocery shopping is so easy! We just pick a few proteins, a few grains (tortillas, bread, rice) and some dairy products. Then we're done for a week (or more.)
*We get to experiment with new meals or we can make our staples each week. For example we just put some delicious arugula on our burgers (staple) and then we made a new curry recipe with the Kabocha Squash.
*If guests "pop by" for dinner, which happens often with our friends, I always have a huge fresh salad, fruit cut up for them to munch on, as well as a yummy entree or side dish.
*The recipes that sometimes come with the basket are delicious! I've wanted to make every single one of them!
*We get the full basket so we have eggs each week and I can't begin to explain my peace of mind knowing that the chickens are free range, grain fed, and healthy.
*We frequently get a jar of homemade pesto, salad dressing, preserve or other sauce and it's insta-meal! We just add some protein to our side of veggies, toss in some brown rice, and cover in sauce. Bon Appetit!
If you're still "on the fence" with joining a CSA or are unhappy with the one you currently have I highly recommend FarmYard.
