It's the first week of the Winter CSA AND the last week of the Spring-Fall CSA, so we're getting a shitton of veggies! Our grocery bill will be tiny, for sure! I really appreciate that the farm takes people like us into consideration when planning the shares for this week – they gave us lots of options so we wouldn't end up with alllll squash or alllll brussels sprouts, etc. (Although I did get double kale, but two different kinds that I'm going to use it for two dishes.) CSA organic vegetables

  • 1 pint Brussels Sprouts OR 1 quart Beets – Looking forward to roasting them for lunch salads; haven't had them in a long while!
  • 1.5 lbs Potatoes (Yukon Gold or Red) – Potato kale soup
  • 1.5 lbs Sweet PotatoesBlack bean + sweet potato + avo quesadilla 
  • 1 Butternut OR Acorn OR Sweet Dumpling Squash – Never had one before, so have to try it (roasted as a side so I can really taste it)
  • 1 bunch Kale OR Collard Greens OR Arugula – Potato kale soup
  • 1 bag Salad Mix OR 1 head Lettuce – Lunch salad with the arugula
  • 1 bunch Collard Greens OR 1 bunch Kale – Kale chips for weekend snack
  • 1 bunch Arugula – Goes well with the beets (see above)
  • 1 pint Brussels Sprouts – Roasted for T$
  • 1 head Broccoli OR 1 head Romanesco – It's so gorgeous, and less common rare than broccoli; roasted for lunch salad 
  • 1 head Savoy Cabbage OR 1 head Napa Cabbage – Asian cabbage salad with carrots, edamame, almonds or cashews (whatever we have) + ginger-lime dressing
  • 1 Delicata Squash – I'm going to experiment with adding walnuts, chia seeds + a bit of maple syrup to roasted delicata squash to have for breakfast one day next week (ie. replacing my oats with squash... I'll let you know how it goes on Insta!) 

Meal prep is going to be VITAL this week - I'll roast the squashes, romanesco, brussels sprouts + beets over the weekend - so the oven only has to preheat once (vs. every night!) Do you prep or only make what you need for the immediate meal? Meet me on FB and let me know!
