A few months ago, Theresa proposed going halfsies on a community support agriculture (CSA) membership for the summer. Yes, I said halfsies.
Being a lover of fresh produce and a person trying to be more “eco-friendly” – I agreed. We signed up for a CSA through One Straw Farm because they seemed to offer more of the things we enjoyed.
This past weekend was the first official pick-up and due to conflicting schedules, Theresa went alone (I was eating breakfast somewhere fantastic… and I’ll blog about it later). I trusted Theresa’s produce selections.
She came back with: lettuce, kale, swiss chard and strawberries.
So far, Jeremy and I have eaten the lettuce, strawberries and swiss chard.
We made bean tacos but used the lettuce as the wrap (instead of a taco shell). I saw this on an episode of I Want to Save Your Life and wanted to try it.
While the lettuce wasn’t crunchy (as I had anticipated), it was still a delicious dinner.
For the strawberries, we ate them on Sunday soaked in balsamic vinegar with a little sugar. A.maz.ing.
I forgot to take pictures of both so you’ll just have to take my word for it.
Last night, I sauteed the swiss chard in toasted sesame oil and tamari sauce with a little salt and pepper.
It was so good and so easy to make. It was a bit crispy and had a nice salty flavor to them. This means they probably weren’t the healthiest thing to eat but whatever… it was good.
