As I mentioned previously, TC and I “resolved” to get CSA boxes this year from Eatwell Farm. Here is what we got yesterday, in our inaugural box:
Pink Lady Apples
1/2 dozen pasture-raised eggs
*denotes items I have never cooked previously
And here is how it all looked:
So exciting! TC and I cooked some of it tonight. One dish was a recipe that we got in our box for cabbage, leeks, and white beans. It sounded promising, but it only turned out so-so, even though we added bacon(!). Still, at least it was healthy? (Minus the bacon.) The other dish we made was a derivative of my mushrooms and bok choy stir fry that is always reliably good, if I do say so myself. I think my favorite thing so far, though, are the oranges. They are exactly what an orange should taste like, if that makes any sense. And we have loads of them. Hooray!
Here’s a completely random photo of the Spicy Peanut Eggplant and Shallot Stew that we made on Saturday. It was super delicious. I’m think I’m developing a huge crush on The Post Punk Kitchen blog.
