We may be po’ but we eats well.

Yesterday was CSA day. Melissa and the kids picked up our share and brought it to our house for our lazy asses. I love that we can be that lazy and just pay for our share which magically appears every Wednesday at a park in-town. But reading Soule Mama this morning and seeing her lovely photos taken when she and her kids went to pick up their share AT THE ACTUAL FARM, I realized what we’re missing out on. They get to pick out their own share as opposed to us just taking our pre-selected share and stuffing it in a plastic bag for the ride back home. Plus, picking up at the farm is actually a less expensive option. There might just be something to that. We’re so freaking lazy.

But anyway, highlights of this week’s share: The first tomatoes of the season! Plus these gorgeous beets.

Fresh farm beets
Am I a radish or am I a beet?

I am beets!

Other not-so-exciting highlights include another huge bunch of kale to add to our sad, wilted kale from last week. Kale recipes anyone? Anyone?

    we love kale! Our favorite winter frittata combines mashed sweet potatoes, chopped kale, and feta with eggs (although I’m not sure it technically counts as a frittata anymore, it becomes pretty heavy…) and kale is also pretty awesome just stir-fried with onions – brown/carmelize onions in olive oil, add kale, then add salt. If you’re bacon-loving people, do it up southern style by frying bacon, removing some fat, and then adding the kale to the pan. Or stir-fry with garlic and soy sauce. Kale!

    oh, i forgot – in the soy/garlic version, also add sesame oil. OK, that’s all. Bye!

    Bacon is the mightiest of meats! It might even make kale taste good! Maybe.
