CSA Week 2

Posted on

I’m a bit behind on sharing with you all, but I figured it would be easier just to start where I am rather than back track. Yesterday was our pick up day for our CSA and we got some new veggies!


Clockwise from top left:

  • Greens, swiss chard I think
  • Pea shoots
  • Lettuce mix
  • Oregano
  • Garlic scapes
  • Tomatoes
  • Rosemary

Brent wants BLT’s with the tomatoes and lettuce. I think I might make foccacia with the rosemary. Garlic scapes are completely new to me. Anyone ever used them? I think I may use the greens in smoothies. So what would you guys make?

Unfortunately, I did not get to use the goods for dinner last night because from 5:30-9pm we were returning our phones and canceling our contract with T-Mobile because my blackberry broke! It just stopped working and wouldn’t turn back on. I was already having a few problems with my internet service on it so I just decided to cancel the contract and find a different carrier. This was easier than I was expecting and we were within the 14 day window where we could cancel with no consequences. We then scoped out new phones and carriers and ended up getting 2 iPhones from AT&T because they were the cheapest smartphone around. I guess the price was lowered on this model because Apple just announced the slightly improved version coming in August.

OK, enough about geeky tech things. I do have one meal from earlier in the week to share with you. I made this couscous salad and we had it for lunches for a few days. Brent and I really like the Israeli couscous and I was excited to find a whole wheat version at the grocery store. I enjoyed this recipe and I think I would make it again.

HPIM3496I can’t believe tomorrow is Friday! This week really flew by for me. My summer dosage calculation class started this week. I should probably get started on the assignments for that. Back tomorrow with dinner!

  1. Sorry about the phone drama! I’ve never heard of garlic scapes before so I’m curious to see what you’ll do with them. That couscous salad looks amazing – yum!!

  2. No–don’t put them in green smoothies! Substitute them anywhere you would use onions, either raw or cooked.

  3. Oops, I see you meant the greens, not the scapes in green smoothies! Makes much more sense.
