gaaa Thursday = new favorite day…CSA day! Quite a leafy haul this week: kale, swiss chard, broccoli, snap peas, asparagus, mixed greens, lettuce of unknown variety, and leeks (I think?). Oh and TWO BOXES of strawberries!!!! I’m in love.
Curried Peanut Squash Soup
This soup came out soo yummy, and I was able to use mostly ingredients from my CSA—the squash, carrots, celery, and onion were direct delivery from Calvert Farm. (I am loving this CSA).
note: the recipe doesn’t say to do this but I used the immersion blender at the end to blend everything together, not completely smooth so it still had some texture and you get a surprise bite of squash every now and then. Sprinkle the green onion/parsley on very last, don’t blend that up.
First CSA box of the fall season from Calvert Farm in Cecil County, MD. So excited to see the amazing variety—this was definitely not the box full of chard that I was apprehensively expecting. First meal was a huge, beautiful, nutritious, yummy success:
-sweet potato fries
-sauteed kale and shallots
-oven roasted winter squash
Served with a nice piece of trout (From the grocery store, not from the box).
