My dad’s birthday is tomorrow, so HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD! I hope you have an AMAZING DAY!
As I mentioned yesterday, we got our first CSA delivery. We’re sharing a share with our friends, so each week we’ll end up with half of a full share.
Yesterday we got:
- 1/2 head of cauliflower
- 1 bag of spinach
- 1 head of lettuce
- bunch of radishes
- bunch of baby carrots
- 2 huge collard green leaves
- 1 bacon avocado (!) – supposed to taste like bacon?
- fresh oregano
I made stir-frys yesterday and today (recipes to come soon) – fresh vegetables really make a difference. I love biting into fresh, ripe, organic veggies. They are straight from the farm (some were picked that morning!) and so perfect that some taste almost sweet – the carrots in particular. Bobby thinks I’m crazy because I snack on the raw veggies as I’m cooking, but I love them so much!
Just for fun, here’s a picture of a garden salad that I got at Gelayo Gusto, that froyo place I’m going crazy about. We went there for our 2.5 year anniversary to have the shaved ice. There wasn’t a vegetarian salad on the menu, so I asked if they’d make a garden salad (I wasn’t too hungry, but wanted some real food before the dessert), and this is what they came up with. It was delicious
