Hello everyone, Jess here. I hope everyone had a Happy Valentine’s Day!
As you may have read, we enjoyed a lovely Sunday Dinner with the Bucks, which included some Springdell chicken, rutabaga (from cold storage), carrots, and some fabulous orange cupcakes. Today is my turn for a Meatless Monday dinner, but my other half is taking me out to dinner tonight (I’ll be sure to keep it meatless)! Since someone else will be doing the cooking for me, it seems like a good time to share some Honorable Mentions and this new video about the Springdell Show and Tell!
I hope this video helps to explain how the Show and Tell works, and I hope you enjoy it!
As a Group A Springdell Winter CSA member, our last pickup was January 30th. As February vacation coincides with our next pickup (originally scheduled for February 20) it seems that we’ll be without a pickup for at least 4 weeks. This is not a time to fret nor panic! It’s rather a great time to re-evaluate the pantry and chest freezers to see what bounty we’ve stored there.
Finally, I’ll leave you with this other little movie I threw together. You’ll recognize it’s a lot like the a video I’ve made before, but edited to answer the question “What CSA means to me”. I entered it into a CSA video contest brought to my attention by my friend from Fat Moon and Fresh Start Food Gardens, Elizabeth Almeida (Thanks, Elizabeth!!!) They’ll be announcing the finalists a week from today, and if I make it, I’ll be asking for your vote to help us win the prize of 1000 dollars! This would be a great way to give CSA365 a budget to work with. Imagine the possibilities… Fingers crossed, here’s hoping!
UPDATE: We will be picking up on Saturday 2/20 after all. Hence, tomorrow we’ll resume with a “Tell’ and begin 2/20 with a “Show”. I’m grateful to have a bounty coming, but also am grateful to have re-visited the chest freezer as well. Hooray for spontaneity!
