The “Tell” – Springdell Winter CSA Pickup #7


Hello everyone, Jess and Sarah here.  

What a chaotic couple of weeks it has been!  

Nan went to the hospital following a stroke, and is currently rehabbing with great success.  All prayers and good thoughts are most welcome.

Jess got shellfish poisoning (it was karma as the shellfish wasn’t local).  She passed out in front of the toilet, hit her head on the bathroom floor,  and is now sporting a respectable shiner.  Some follow up testing will tell if her brain is any more rattled than usual.

The Buck family had a stomach bug pass through not only their house, but their entire neighborhood!

Somehow we made it through and managed to stay on schedule, not missing a daily post of recipes or ingredients.  Lets reflect!

We had some fun this week shooting a video for the Fresh Start Food Gardens School project. This is putting a garden into every school in Westford! Following filming, Elizabeth of Fat Moon and Fresh Start cooked up some bacon and cheese waffles.  We had a few hash brown waffles too.  Thanks for a yummy lunch, Elizabeth!

We enjoyed some of our potatoes with herb butter from last Summer’s herb bed.

When the butter melts, fresh herbs remain!

Yummy golden garlic chive fries!

 

Feeling the CSA love this week, and looking forward to checking back in with you tomorrow for the 8th “Show” of the Springdell Winter CSA Season.
