Simple, real, whole foods! One of our family goals this season (we write a seasonal family manifesto that I'll share more about later) was to finally join a CSA - aka "Community Supported Agriculture" group. We have talked about it for so long that it felt like we were already doing it. Except we weren't. Until this spring!
Our secondary goal with joining the CSA this spring is to USE every last bit we get from them. No rotten veggies on the counter allowed! This means we've had to think about cooking in a whole new way and actually I've found that ingredient based cooking is so much easier. Thinking, "Hmmm, I have a huge bunch of kale, what can I make with this?" has been so much fun.
Except not these. My fancy schmancy organic CSA lemons? Not going to waste! I was determined to make something special so turned to my biggest inspiration in the world of food. What would Alice Waters do?
Another good book is From Asparagus to Zucchini which super helpful if you join a CSA and get handed a bunch of veggies you are completely unfamiliar with.
I hope this spring brings you a bountiful harvest!
