The “Tell” – Springdell Spring CSA pickup #4


Hello!  Another week has passed and we have had some fun experimenting with clover flowers and enjoying the contents of our final Springdell Spring CSA basket.  Take a look at how all of this delicious green ended up on our plates:

Here is the meat add on for this week:

  • Bacon
    • In the freezer for a weekend breakfast sometime soon!
  • sandwich steak
    • sliced and made into a quick stirfry
  • smoked ham steak
    • Plans to be used next week!

Jess actually cooked an 8.6 pound Springdell chicken this week.  This was enough meat to carry the Anderson family through the week, so you’ll see some new meats in action next week.

Being the last week of the Spring CSA, it has been a quiet week for recipes (aside from our many clover flower experiments!) Sarah has been busy busy busy with her new Whisk on Wheels cart.  Check out these root beer float cupcakes she sold out of!

Jess is working hard at prepping things for the Strawberry Festival scheduled for Saturday, June 18th. Hope to see many of you there as we indulge on freshly baked Donelan’s Shortcake, freshly picked Parlee Farm Strawberries, and freshly whipped cream whipped up by volunteers just before shortcake is served at 12:30.  In the meantime, looking forward to enjoying some more Springdell strawberries as well (the Andersons have already picked up and devoured 3 quarts total from the Springdell farm stand!)  See you tomorrow for Sunday Dinner!
