CSA Eating


I only have 1 week left with my CSA box, I am so disappointed. I wish I could pick one up every week all year long. Fresh, local, organic produce all sitting in a nice box waiting for me every Monday night. And cheap! Have I talked it up enough over the last 6 weeks? I truly am obsessed!


This week I got 3 tomatoes, 4 apples, 2 acorn squash, 3 banana peppers, 2 bell peppers, green onions, green beans, lima beans, lettuce, and 1/2 dozen eggs. Seriously, for $20, unreal!

And as always, I did some damage on it the first day. I need to learn to ration it out better, but its just too good!

Peas and Crayons

Breakfast: oatmeal with pumpkin, pumpkin seeds, and peanut butter. Tis the season!


Lunch: 2 green peppers, 3 celery stalks, hummus, crackers and cheese, bowl of homemade almond bran cereal with skim milk


Snack: 1.5 cookies from the freezer and too many handfuls of whole grain goldfish to count


Dinner: 7 oz salmon, sweet potato, lima beans


Dessert: frozen cake ball, handful of chocolate chips, part of the girls’ baked apples


The goldfish and cake balls are leftover from Alyssa’s birthday party over the weekend. I froze the leftover cake balls. Problem with that is they are even better frozen! I was thinking I could take one out every now and then but I forsee them all being eaten within the week. Those cookies are also from the weekend, and once again I froze them, but they are even better frozen too! It seriously is a good thing I love vegetables as much as I do dessert or else I’d be in trouble!
