CSA, Week 1

We have a new CSA this year, Orchard Country Produce, and so far, I’m totally in love! Last Tuesday was our first pick-up and this was our bounty:
CSA, Week 1
Asparagus
Braeburn Apples
Young Shallots
Strawberries
Lettuce Mix
Rhubarb
Radishes
Smoked Cheddar
Spring Onions

Here’s how we used all (okay, well, most) of these goodies:
Last Tuesday we had tuna melts with a salad made of CSA lettuce and radishes, and non-CSA carrots. Then I made a Strawberry-Rhubarb Cobbler for dessert. Heavenly.

Wednesday we had another CSA salad with our salmon cakes.

I ate the rest of the radishes with my lunch one day that week – and Jami had one of the apples.

Saturday morning I made Strawberry-Sour Cream Scones with what was left of the Strawberries. Yum. I’ve never been much of a baker. Apparently all it took was a fear of strawberries going to waste :).

We had the young shallots as a side dish last night, sauteed with zucchini (I did the same with some spring onions over the weekend). Finally Jami had a cheese sandwich for lunch yesterday with the smoked cheddar. In all, we ended the week, with just 2 spring onions, 2 apples, and some smoked cheddar left.
