My Yummy Local Life

{April 5, 2013}   Yum Yum Produce Box #5


We got box 5 of 6 today, and confirmed our sign up for the next 6 weeks. It might be the last spring cycle and then no more box until July which is a little sad. I’m already getting used to my weekly box!

Today we got:

1 bunch red Russian kale
1 bunch of Rutabagas
1 bunch of white Radishes? (the small white ones…I’m not positive, they could be mini turnips?)
1 bag sprouts
1 bag white beans
1 bunch carrots
1 bunch collard greens
1 lonely orange 🙂

We are thinking of inventing some kind of sausage with root veggie bake to use some carrots, rutabaga and radishes up (maybe some potatoes too).

There will definitely be more collard green smoothies as this is currently my only way to like the bitter greens. The good news is I froze two whole pineapples this week (they were in sale for $1 each) so I have something sweet to balance them out.

The sprouts and kale will probably become this weeks salad mix. We’ve been getting a head of romaine to go with our greens and have ready to use salad mix. We found that you can keep the cut greens fresh for a few days by putting a damp paper towel over them (thanks again Pinterest).

We might use up some of the beans this week, but I have not decide what for yet.

That lovely orange is probably being consumed right about now my hubby for a mid morning snack/breakfast. It didn’t stand a chance.

As always, go check out all the other CSA yummies at In Her Chucks.

Have a yummy local week!

Yummers! Those look like Japanese turnips to me. if so, this is my favorite recipe……so good!

Thanks for sharing and linking up!
