This Week's CSA Haul

In our efforts to save money without compromising on the quality of our produce, Roy and I have stopped shopping at our local farmer's market (sadface) and instead have begun getting our fruits and veggies from a CSA.

For $22 per share, we got all this:

1 bunch of celery
1 bunch of green onions
1 pineapple
1 mango
2 oranges
5 peaches
4 squashes
1 head of cabbage
1 package of strawberries
2 avocados
1 bundle of kale
1 bundle of cilantro
1 bunch of carrots
2 tomatoes
1 bag of apricots
1 cucumber
1 head of romaine lettuce

Such great variety! The only problem is figuring out what to do with this much cabbage, kale, and cilantro. Looks like I'll be googling some recipes...

Happy weekending, everyone!

We go through a ton of Kale at our house. We don't eat it, our Bearded Dragon does :)

Not much advice on the kale but for the cabbage theres always coleslaw or mix it up in stir fry. A lot of mexican dishes have cilantro (tacos, mexican pizza). Sounds like you got a lot of great stuff for a good price too!
