For those of you who sit around wondering “Hmmm, I wonder what Nick is eating up in Wisconsin. After all, he’s all alone (awww, how sad) and there’s no one to cook for him. How does he survive?”, I figured that I’d give a quick post on food.
Today is the first week that my CSA is running. What? You mean you’ve never heard of a CSA? Ok. Let me explain it to all you barbaric city-dwellers (please note the heavy irony as I live in suburbia).
CSA is an acronym that stands for Community Supported Agriculture. Essentially, it offers community members an opportunity to invest in a local farm and receive a “share” of the resultant crops. See here for more information.
Here’s my first box of food and a list of what’s included:
Green Leaf Lettuce
Red Russian Kale
Since this spring has been unusually cold and wet, the strawberries and peas will be forthcoming. But in the meantime, I have plenty to eat.
If anybody out there has any suggested recipes, just let me know. Thanks.
