The Start of the Winter CSA

Yesterday was the first day of the Winter CSA.  I excitedly, and a bit nervously, picked it up and brought it home.  Picking up this box means that I now have a hefty goal upon my shoulders: to use up and learn to cook with ALL the contents of this box.

Here’s what I found:  The first half was a bushel of parsley, a bag of turnip greens, an acorn squash, 2 baby bok choy, and a garlic bulb hiding behind the squash.

The rest of the box holds 4 leek shoots, and a variety of potatoes, carrots, onions and beets.

To help me learn how to use all of these veggies and to help track the good recipes I find, I’ll be using the ingredient page that I made once upon a time under the Real Foods Page.  For dinner last night, I used the leeks and made a chicken and leek cheese bake.  YUMMY!  I ate over half of it myself.  I’ll get the recipe up soon.  And of course, update the ingredients page eventually.  🙂  Big dreams but only so much time in a day, right?  In the mean time, I got to go to work.
