What a beautiful, summer day we are having here in West Michigan. The humidity finally broke and it is absolutely gorgeous out! Hope you’ve all been able to enjoy a little time outside. As you have noticed… your boxes were a little heavy this week, which is a good thing, I hope!?
So the slogan I have been using with The Farmers Wife CSA is “Bringing the Garden to your Home,” and I have been so impressed with how many of you have really been using your produce in the kitchen! I have talked with a few of you about this, but for me, I am so insistent on using the produce up each week from the garden….but when I shop at the grocery store, it is no surprise when I have to dump some of my produce each week. I understand that being part of the CSA is an investment, but I am loving that you guys are taking that to heart and really finding ways to use up all of this produce:)
If some of you are running stuck, I thought I would find a few recipes to share with you. I am not going to lie, I have not been super creative in the kitchen lately as our kitchen in our new house isn’t even unpacked yet. We don’t have doors or shelves on our kitchen cabinets, so you can imagine how hesitant I am to unpack all of my food basics and utensils with 3 almost 2 year olds running around the house! So maybe some of you can be the critics of these recipes and try them at home.
Yum….I think I need to try them all:) Ok so next week will be looking quite similar as we are in the middle of the harvest season for tomatoes, peppers, etc….. I will have an updated list during the weekend. Here are some pictures of how things are looking today:)
Sweet corn should be ready in 2 weeks!? And I can’t believe we have Pie Pumpkins turning ORANGE already!?!
