I have had CSA boxes and home deliveries in the past but the weekly commitment are not always affordable and most don't have near the selection or prices thanks to the group. So I'm loving the group and the very first week this is just a peek at the huge box of food I hauled home.There is much more too it than first meets the eye and quite honestly I need a lot more time to figure it all out. I'm also hoping to volunteer to help at some point in the future.
This is out box from a few weeks back (I'm picking up a new one today)
From this box we made potato and kale soup,watched our kids devour fruit salad, and we all tried new foods. While this box isn't totally local this time of year you can choose one that is, along with milk,eggs,bread,meat,and oh so much more.
So, I know this isn't exactly Meatless Monday recipes... But the boxes inspire several creative dishes and more meatless dishes to try. The potato soup with Kale (needed something more - it wasn't a huge hit), and got our kids trying new foods (like brussels sprouts - which was a tough sell but my older did do a great job trying them).
