First Taste

It is here!! Our first veggie pick-up was today at the CSA farm.

We got spinach and mesclun(we think), bok choi, radishes, romaine lettuce,cilantro and fresh eggs(grass fed and free to roam), with a little note inside that said they were laid with love by Becky, Debbie, Peggy and Jenny.
Here are the kids having their first taste. I sliced up some radishes and we went for it. As you can see, they were a little too spicy for M.
My goal is to eat our way through that box before next weeks pick-up on Wednesday. I think we can do it.I am feeling good about it! I have been checking out all kinds of sources to find recipes for what to do with what we have(thanks Colleen...she is a veteran box getter and has much more experience). I hope that i will have some exciting new recipes to share here. As for tonight, we promptly made a salad and enjoyed every bite!

You know Leslie, the french would make a butter and white bread sandwich with the radishes...I bet it still tastes like radishes though.

YOu are SOOOOOOOOOOOO lucky and I am SOOOOOOOOOOOO envious. Cant wait to see/hear what you make.

i wanted to make a radish sandwich but i don't think Chris was totally sold on the idea. Maybe if i do like Ina and make herb butter for it then it would be a bigger hit. Sounds like a nice lunch. I hope we can do the box justice

Yummy! I really like radishes. Did Avery enjoy them?

Leslie said...
