I have been waiting all year for this and it is finally here. The CSA box! I feel like yelling the CSA box is here! The CSA box is here! So I guess I got that out of my system. I had intended to write a long-winded post during the winter on why buying into a CSA is the right thing to do but I found it, well, boring and preachy. So let me just say after our 1st year we upped our CSA from Birdsong Farms to include the fall option so YES it is the right thing to do. From our 1st box as well as some of the other Haymaker Farm Market vendors items we did a shrimp stir fry with garlic scapes, broccoli, brassica, red pepper, snow peas and zucchini. This was served over saffron pasta from Ohio City Pasta along with an orange juice stir fry sauce consisting of orange juice, chicken broth, soy sauce and corn starch to thicken it slightly. It is so nice to be eating fresh food raised by friends again. Thanks.
The orange juice-based sauce sounds fantastic. I love the giant lizard! OHHHH the gifts from Ross!
Yes the gifts from Ross can be frightening and yet they are nailed to the side of the house.
Oh, this meal was so good! Veggies so very fresh, and the little radishes in the salad were wonderful! I even ate the tiny raw turnips but they are slightly “nippy” for my taste. Kim loved them like I loved the radishes. The snow peas were so tender and tasty. I LOVE being back at the farmers’ market!!!!!!
Congrats on your first box! I look forward to my weekly CSA box too 🙂
