Fall CSA Week 10

This is the last Fall CSA box! Here's everything I got. Items are listed below, starting at the top and moving left to right. Fall CSA Week 10

  1. Lacinato kale
  2. Arugula
  3. Napa cabbage
  4. Cauliflower
  5. Sweet potatoes
  6. Baby sweet potatoes
  7. Decorative corn
  8. Dried hot peppers
  9. Globe radishes

The peppers and large sweet potatoes went away to be eaten another time. We snacked on the radishes and the decorative corn got a place propped up in our kitchen.

The first meal is (you guessed it) eggs! You know I love me some eggs and we couldn't NOT have them in the final week. I used the kale for a yummy salad and roasted the baby sweet potatoes.

This meal is what happens when I don't plan well. We were supposed to have homemade pizza, but then I realized that we didn't have any cheese. So what did I do instead? Homemade breadsticks. That plus an arugula salad and marinara sauce for dipping was dinner. My hubby thought it was awesome.

Breadsticks and Arugula Salad

For this last one, I broke down a chicken into parts and marinated it in a combination of tamari, garlic, ginger, honey, and water, and baked it in the oven. I cooked down the marinade to kill any nasties and used that as the sauce for the cabbage. Roasted baby sweet potatoes (from a previous CSA box) completed the meal.

And that's it for the 2014 CSA season! I hope these posts gave you a little peek at what dinner looks like at my house and some ideas for your seasonal produce. Here's to all of those yummy veggies!
