Eat local…

When a friend asked us to pick up her CSA (Community Share Agriculture) it was as good as Christmas in July. The concept: buy into a farm share, let someone else do all the heavy lifting, then you pick up your portion of the harvest at a local house weekly. The catch:  you never know what produce you are going to get from week to week… it’s whatever the farm has harvested and is in season. Ours was loaded with colorful carrots, lettuce, tomatillos (confession: I did have to Google to determine their identity) and tomatoes.

The novelty wore of a smidge when I found myself chopping all day Sunday- for fear that the vegetables would spoil before we used them up. “Fun, CSA!” quickly turned into “F&$#ing, CSA.” Sometimes it’s just easier to eat processed food. That said, here’s what I made:

Curry Carrot Soup // Taboulleh // Green Salsa
