Well, yesterday we received our first CSA share from a new CSA we were trying. There is no picture, because we were very disappointed. The amount of produce we got for our money, was small, and when I say small, I mean small. A different CSA we tried last year gave us a ton of produce, a big bargain for your money. All organic, and perfect. Lesson learned, we will not use this CSA again.
For dinner, I made a fancy pizza. It was not your typical vegan meat and cheese pizza. I made a homemade crust, lightly brushed it with a little olive oil, put some sliced radicchio on it, white beans that I had gently sauteed in a little red wine vinegar and sea salt, some carmelized leeks, topped it with a vegan nutty goat cheese, and fresh thyme. It was unique and delicious. We had half a head of radicchio from our CSA share and I wanted to use it along with the leeks we got.
I also made some refrigerator pickles. There were 4 cucumbers in the CSA share, we got half of them, so I decided to use them for some pickles. The recipe I used was sent to me from a friend. She found the recipe online. The pickles are easy to make and delicious. They will be so tasty next week with our vegan pastrami on rye sandwiches. Mmmm.
Tomorrow is Friday. Happy dance! After our youngest being sick yesterday, and wee bit grumpy this morning, I welcome the weekend. Do you have any plans?
peas and love….
