Earth Day and veggies

 Earth Day and veggies
Happy Earth Day! I don’t have a new recipe for you, but I do have pictures of some beautiful organic vegetables that I’ve been cooking with.

I’m going to join a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) with two other members of meeting, D&D. When you join a CSA, you pay a certain amount per week to receive a share of fresh, organic vegetables from local farms. The one I’m joining is called Two Small Farms. D&D already recieve 1/2 of a share, so they get their fresh vegetables delivered once every other week. Once Bobby and I join with them, we’ll get a delivery every week and split it.

I really encourage everyone to look into local CSAs. Joining is a great way to promote sustainability and be environmentally conscious. If you want to help make our earth a greener place, go out and celebrate Earth Day by joing a CSA!

 Earth Day and veggies
This past week D&D brought some extra veggies from their share to meeting for me to have. There were some greens called spigariello, fresh oranges, mint, and purple cabbage. I decided to make a variation of the delica Spinach Salad (pictured below) as well as my Classic Coleslaw (above). For the spinach salad I just substituted spigariello. For the coleslaw I used 1/2 a head of cabbage, 4 carrots, and one medium white onion as the base.

 Earth Day and veggiesI also made grilled cinnamon oranges, which I’ll post tomorrow. The recipe is simple, quick, and quite delicious.

    I used to be a member of Mariquita Farm’s CSA, and it was always great! They introduced to me to some lovely, hard-to-find veggies/fruits — cardoon, bacon avocados, nettle, and sorrel in particular. And oh! their strawberries are soooo good.

    Also, on their website, they have a great recipe index sorted by vegetable — it’s definitely worth checking out if you haven’t already

    Best,
