Good Food

Here is today’s CSA goodness. I don’t have the list right in front of me with all the exact names and what not, but here is the quick run down.

*Apples! Yay!
*Green beans
*Tomatoes…big and little
*Tapestry salad mix…yum!

There was one more apple and TONS more little yellow tomatoes…but Bella and I were really hungry on the way home.

CSA Goodness on July 24

Another lovely CSA basket. Here is what was included this week:

Beans: Filet Beans (Maxibel)
Beets: Blankoma – white, Chioggia – red and white striped, and Golden – yellow
Cucumber: Suyo Long
Leeks – King Richard
Summer Squash: Sebring – yellow, and Eight Ball – round and green
Tomatoes: Dr. Wyche’s Yellow (large golden), Italian Heirloom, Juliet (red cherry), and White Bounty (all heirloom except Juliet)

Good stuff. Last night we made Tomato Basil Pasta with fresh basil, the Italian Heirloom tomato, fresh garlic, onion, and whole wheat pasta. Yummmmm. Today, I ate half of the cucumber. It was so delicious. My parents have an “egg share” and get a dozen “just laid” eggs every week. I stole 2 eggs from their box for Bella. They were so cute…and green.

Words to Eat By

"It is easier to change a man's religion than to change his diet." -Margaret Mead

"I don't understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it is medically conservative to cut people open and put them on cholesterol lowering drugs for the rest of their lives." - Dean Ornish, MD

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
