CSA Saturday: Week 16 & Funny Stories
|September 15, 2012||Posted by Running at Disney under CSA Saturday|
Well, we’re sadly getting near the end of my CSA. Only 4 weeks left Didn’t this just start?!
Funny story about picking up today’s basket. I wish I didn’t leave my phone in the car because pictures would’ve made a much better post. As I was putting all my farm goodness into my bags, a couple came up and said…”um, there’s a dead baby possum over there.” Que??? Over where?? I should probably preface this by saying that the farm where I pick up my basket has a GORGEOUS farm stand and said possum was apparently right in the middle of this.
Gorgeous right?! Well apparently this little possum was just playing possum (like in my favorite commercial) and once prodded a bit started to move. The farm owner literally swept him into a box where another girl took him out to the back of the farm. It was quite funny to watch and in reality baby possum are super cute! Well, until they show their teeth.
Anyway, let’s look at this week’s basket…
Awesome basket this week! One of my favorite salads is a green lettuce, shredded carrot and chopped scallion salad with a lemon vinaigrette. This is so happening this weekend. Corn and tomatoes…shocker, they will be sides to some grilled chicken. Even though I always make this meal, the simplicity of it always makes me happy and reminds me of summer. The fruit will just get snacked on, so that leaves the beets. I’m getting bored with plain old roasted beets. Any good recipes out there for something different??
