1st CSA bag + ALL DONE!

Woohoo, I am all done with this semester. One more to go and then I can graduate. I already know 2 of my marks and I know I did well on this last final. Should be a good semester mark-wise.

I also got my first Fresh City Farms bag last night. I got a fair bit of food and my fridge is full. I am trying to figure out what to do with all this produce. Luckily, to quote Anna Olson, "What grows together, goes together", so it shouldn't be all too hard to figure out.

I got a HUGE bunch of Rainbow Chard, I am not the biggest fan of chard, but I have mostly just had it plain. I also got a head of cauliflower, which will probably be roasted. I tend to like this Weightwatchers recipe (from when I was on a diet) that is called Cauliflower Poppers. It is essentially roasted cauliflower with chili powder and other spices. The other option is a sorta similar recipe from the Vegetarian Times, I will probably have it without the pita, I can never seem to master eating things stuffed in a pita, unless it is pre-wrapped from a falafel joint.

There was also a bag of carrots (2 lbs) which on top of my other 3 lb bag of carrots from Loblaws means I have a heck of a lot of carrots. I'm thinking curry carrot soup, for some of it at least, sounds like lunch today. Celeriac is something I don't cook with often but one has landed in my fridge. I think roasted with carrots is good. I do like roasted things, if you couldn't tell. The sweetness of the vegetables really come out when they are roasted.

So many yummy things to cook with, so little time. My next box comes on Monday because of Christmas, So I have <5 days to clear out enough food to fit the new box in my fridge. I sense a lot of my veggies in my future, that's fine with me!
