CSA Week 14

This week at the CSA we got 4 tomatoes, a big bag of onions, a pound and a half of potatoes-I chose the little ones, a bunch of kale, one bok choy, one bunch of basil, one bunch of carrots (yum), two peppers, 5 ears of corn and 10 peaches.
I admit. I am in the bottom of a food valley. I am stuck in a rut. I have made too much labor intensive food recently. I have too many kids that won't eat anything but bread and meat. I need some super quick recipes that utilise many veggies that I actually have. I have made the mistake of buying whatever I want at the farmer's market and now I am stuck with a ton of stuff that doesn't go together. It might be curry time again.
This week ahead of me I foresee a potato and sausage bake and possibly an onion pie (thanks for the recipe Agrigirl-I cannot think of a more fitting use for the lard I recently bought at the farmer's market). And you want to find out how that goes, you'll just have to keep reading.


  1. I totally understand about the kids who will only eat bread and meat, I have one of those right now. Except Grandma is the only one to get him to eat the meat and I can only get him to eat oatmeal and maybe some applesauce. I don't know what to do about him. Should I be worried or is this just a stage?

  2. I think everything is a phase with kids. But we do have to keep at it. Thing 1 when he was aroufn 12-18 months hated meat and loved veggies, now both kids won't eat veggies and love meats. Thing 2 now doesn't want to eat at all, and you have to shove a spoonful in his mouth to get him started and then he will actually eat.
    We are just keeping at it and giving veggies where we can and making kids take bites to 'try' when we can. Tomorrow is another day!
