My half share at the CSA has been great so far. Last Friday, I helped harvest the crops and it was really fun. I picked onions, radishes, strawberries and squash. I'd never picked onions or radishes before and it was cool to see how they grow and get my hands dirty.
This week's CSA haul was: 2 lettuces, 4 zucchini, 2 eight ball zucchni, 2 crook neck squashes, 1 romanesca zucchini, 1 small pint of strawberries, onions, and radishes.
Here's a photo of my pickup a few weeks back which included Red Russian kale, lettuces, onions, a few berries, and radishes.
These are some pistachio rosewater cupckes from VCTOTW. I baked them for my friend's birthday and they went on a trip with us to Acadia National Park up in Maine. I'll post some of those pics in the future.
This is cranberry cinnamon bread which is a test recipe for Lolo's (of VeganYumYum) upcoming cookbook. It is supposed to be cinnamon raisin, but I pretty much despise raisins. Cranberries made a great substitution. This bread is really wonderful.
After jumping, my dad took me to Crazy Burger in RI for lunch. There, I got a vegan burger and vegan carrot cake for dessert. Later, my family and I got together at Elephant Walk for dinner. EWalk has French Cambodian food with a separate vegan menu. Yay!
Though I'm not a fan of the radishes from the farm, the greens are wonderful sauteed with olive oil and garlic. Below on the left is some radish greens. On the right is some mizuna from the farm. Normally, we see mizuna in field green salads. Now I know you can also cook it up.
That's all for now. I have many pics to post still and will try to catch up soon. Hope everyone is doing well.
