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.
- Lacinato kale
- Napa cabbage
- Sweet potatoes
- Baby sweet potatoes
- Decorative corn
- Dried hot peppers
- 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.
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!
