The “Show” – Springdell Winter CSA Pickup #7

Hi all, Jess here to present the 7th pickup of the Springdell Winter CSA! What a delicious box of deliciousness we have here! As a reminder, if you’re interested joining the Summer CSA, now is the time to apply! Stop by the farm or email Farmer Jamie to receive your CSA application today! There are also some good incentives should you want to sign up for the meat subscription too. Let’s have some fun cooking together this summer!

It’s so nice to see this week’s feature in the CSA box! Mozzarella House has some amazing cheeses, all just a piece up the road from us! Stuffed Shells are my usual go-to this time of year, when I have ricotta and yummies such as spinach, garlic, tomato and parsley. If you have lasagna noodles kicking around, Spinach and Ricotta Roll-Ups are yummy as well!. We’ll see what the week brings! Meanwhile, ricotta is great with radishes (if you have any left from the last pickup), or rolled into your favorite meatballs to create a very nice texture.
So many options for enjoying this Hadley parsley! Chimichurri, anyone? For other ideas, please feel free to visit the Veggiescope for Parsley (and any of the other items listed above).

If you haven’t used your lamb kabobs yet, try using your parsley in this recipe for Lamb with Peaches! Lots of fresh and interesting flavors to be had here, and healthy, too!

We’ll see what this week brings to the Anderson kitchen, there may be more preserving than storing with the flu germs permeating the house, but I’m hopeful for a speedy recovery. Please feel free to check in with your ideas, questions, etc. Send me a message here or on the Facebook page, and thank you for your continued interest and support of the local food/CSA lifestyle!
