{CSA 2012} Share 5 :: Recipes

February 1, 2012

I was hoping we’d get some more beets this week, because my friend was kind enough to share a recipe for Chocolate Beet Cake with Beet Cream Cheese Frosting on my facebook page. Finally! A recipe for beets I can get excited about! ;0

So, as I walked up to my cooler, I was actually thinking “beets, beets, please let there be beets!” Ha! The irony of it all! If you know me, you know I’ve been trying to enjoy beets for years, unsuccessfully, but trying because beets are nutritionally outstanding. Recipe after recipe I say “um, no. still yuck”. But that recipe? That recipe made me think “hell yeah!”. And so I find it ironic that I would actually be hoping for beets.

But no, no beets this week. Darn.

In our “share” this week ::

  • Cherry Tomatoes
  • Broccoli
  • Japanese Eggplants
  • Baby Pac Choi (Bok Choy)
  • Tatsoi Japanese Spinach
  • Baby Chard Mix
  • Red Bibb Lettuce
  • Oakleaf Lettuce

Well, that’s the plan anyway. Stay tuned and see how it all turns out! I love this feeling of accomplishment… my menus are planned, my grocery lists are made, and my coupons are clipped. Meal planning around our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) share, and homeschooling around teachable moments both definitely fit Sofia’s Ideas on Simplicity, Frugality, and Frivolity… all with an Eco-Mentality!

Alright. Now look at this closely. You see those spots? Those spots are actually aphids! Lots of aphids. So, what do I do? Attempt to wash them all off? Just throw them out? I’ve had bunches with an aphid here or there but never this many. What do you think? Advice?

Maybe we’ll just do a lesson plan around aphids? How about we start with…
