My first blog post ever!Posted: June 9, 2011
I feel like I have gotten so much out of reading blogs that I want to do my part to contribute to the internets. I want to write about healthy food and some desserts for good measure. I am inspired to start by writing about our CSA haul each week. We are subscribed to Fresh Fork Market. I didn’t think to start this until after the first week. I will do a review, but no pictures, unfortunately. We get the small share so this is what we received:
1 whole pasture raised chicken, 4-5 lbs
2 lbs organic cornmeal
1 bunch cilantro
1 bunch radishes with tops
1 head assorted leaf lettuce (approx .5 lbs)
1 hydroponic cucumbers
1 quart farmstead yogurt
We roasted the chicken which was delicious! We put some Penzey’s spices on it and it turned out perfectly.
I also made Julia Child’s spoon cornbread. It was good but not very sweet like I am used to eating cornbread. However, the following morning I added honey and it was great. I like that I did not have to use a box to make it and it was all ingredients I had in my kitchen.
I roasted the radishes with new potatoes and then sauteed them along with a handful of spinach in vinaigrette dressing. This was based off a recipe from Noble Pig. This was really springy and delightful. I did not know what to expect with the radishes but they were so good and paired well with the potatoes. I will definitely make this again.
Other than that, we have had smoothies and salads with the other ingredients.
I am looking forward to picking up this week’s haul tonight. I have some plans for taco pizza!
