Only ONE MORE WEEK LEFT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am terribly sad about this.
This was a small CSA week. We got a bunch of kale, a bunch of arugula, one butternut squash, three Italian eggplants, two celeriac roots, a bag of red onions, 2 red(dish) tomatoes and two green tomatoes, two green peppers, a head of lettuce, and a turnip. Huh? One turnip? I will blame that on DH. I manned the kids while he chose the veggies. He asked me about a hundred questions...What kind of butternut do you want? What do you look for in an eggplant? Do you want daikons or turnips? I mean!! Just pick something!! They're vegetables!! Ok, I am over it. I don't want to be mean.
There is a slight chill in the air. There is a crisp smell on the wind. I came out of the subway tonight and it was dark. And we haven't even had daylight savings time yet. Honestly I am worried about fall vegetables. I have been dabbling in fall vegetables all while eating carrots and broccoli, both of which are still technically local for me (even if not EVERY one I have eaten has been local). But now, my kids' favorite stuff is disappearing from my refrigerator and all I have is this stuff that takes a really long time to cook. I am getting really nervous. Are my kids gonna hate me? Am I gonna be able to get dinner on the table on a weeknight? Am I gonna buy all non-local vegetables all winter?
