I know it has been a while since I have reported on my CSA box. Well, as of late, I have been loving what arrives in the box each week.
This past week I got the following:
  • 2 crowns of broccoli
  • 1 head of cabbage
  • 1 bunch of carrots
  • 1 butternut squash*
  • 1 bunch of curly kale
  • 1 bag of mixed braising greens
  • 1 bag of baby spinach
  • 3 lemons
  • 2 large juicing oranges
  • 8 tangelos
  • 1 grapefruit

*OK, so I have to tell you that when I brought the box home and placed it on my counter I opened it and the butternut was laying on top and I looked at it and literally went "oh, sorry!" and closed the box. This butternut is the largest most phallic looking thing I have ever seen. It doesn't stop there. When I finally gathered myself, I opened the box again, first with a peak and then all the way. I carefully lifted the butternut out of the box and noticed there was some dirt and it needed to be washed. I placed it in the sink, rinsed it off and grabbed a towel. Well, the drying off of this thing made me feel like I was doing something I shouldn't have been with a butternut so I closed the blinds so the neighbors couldn't see into the kitchen. I am telling you, I couldn't even take a photo of it to show you all. Today may be it's last day though, it may be roasted for dinner or made into soup.
