Isn't it a beautiful week! This week's treat is definitely the lavender. Although you can eat lavender, I'll be fine just looking at it and smelling it. The other newbies to the box this week were potatoes (purple viking and white California) and zucchini. Other than that, we've had it all before: lettuce, broccoli, beets, salad turnips, collard greens, scallions and garlic; but we're definitely happy to have it again.
For the few of you who read my weekly CSA post, it's most likely because you are a) part of a CSA or b) you're curious about what being in a CSA is like. For those of you in category b), I'm including our weekly CSA newsletter from Calliope Farm so you can see what we get with our vegetables and for those of you in category a) I'm sure that you'll love the great recipes that farmers Megan and Jacob passed along this week. Enjoy!
That's it! We get something like this every week. I hope that you enjoyed your peek into our box and our email this week.
Let me know if you try any of these recipes, they all look delicious. I however have other plans for my zucchini this week:
zucchini cake sandwich cookies, yum! And although this recipe from Eat Cake for Dinner looks absolutely delectable the way it is, I'm going to go with just the zucchini cake cookies to cut down on the sugar intake. The cream cheese frosting will be sorely missed by the Winter family, but I'm sure that our bodies will thank us in the long run.
Thank you so much to Eat Cake for Dinner and Calliope Farm for sharing some yummy recipes with us!
Have a yummy week, I know we will.
