First CSA box!
Besides the "fun" of having different stuff every week, to me it is about knowing where our food is coming from. Everything is local and comes from a handful of different farms. All of the meat is grass fed and humanely treated. This is one of the most important things to me! After watching Food, Inc. I am a little disgusted with the state of the food industry. I would rather keep my money local, and know what I am feeding my family.
Not to mention eating better, and learning about new and different things!
This week, we got: TONS of amazing strawberries, lots of salad greens, chives, kohlrabi, bok choy, eggs, steak, ham, and wheat bread. Pretty awesome! This is the first week of the season, and it's pretty cool eating things that are REALLY in season.
Today we tried bok choy for dinner:
However, I got one "head" of it, like above, and after this meal I have at least half of it left and no idea what to do with it.
