my CSA

Thursday, June 02, 2016

It's that time of year.  My most favorite time.  But then again, the season we are in is my favorite time.  But seriously, moving outside for dinner and extra daylight is such a treat.  I still have that same great feeling when I'm dining alone.  And, that is what happened last night.  With Steve having dinner with his pals.  Charlie is in Haiti for the month.  Libby is with her boyfriend. (!) And, Andrew is playing golf.  Especially when dinner is made entirely from my CSA box and I have my knitting by my side.  
The first pickup was Tuesday and it has me giddy like a little girl.  All this planned and grown from a farm?  Right in my area?!  And, a loaf of fresh bread from the bakery they team up with? And, I get a different box every Tuesday?!  I have been doing this for 8 years and it never gets old.   What a gift.
I hurt my back in yoga on Monday.  But I'm trying to make the most of it.  I make the kids help me out a bit.  It's pretty much great!

A new snickerdoodle recipe is in the oven.  I'll be sure to let you know how they turn out.

  1. Sounds like you had a lovely date wth yourself. Fine dining under the stars is priceless.

  2. Eight years?! Wow! It must be really awesome since you've been doing it for so long. I've considered it but thought it would be pricey and that I would get things I wouldn't like. I really should give it a try. A delicious meal outside, a glass of wine, and knitting...sounds pretty perfect! :-)

  3. both of our CSA's stopped. So sad. I need to find another! I loved getting that box every week.

  4. Boxes like that are so much fun, having the house to yourself is almost better though.

  5. ooh, CSA!! I used to have one, but the delivery system wasn't working for me... I'd like to try again sometime.
