CSA Week One


We got our first CSA box yesterday! Mike and I decided to split a full share with my parents. We went through Olden Produce in Ripon, WI.

I love being a part of the CSA and receiving a bag of mysterious goodies every week, but this whole thing throws my menu planning routine a little off. I’m going from picking out meals over the weekend to planning mid-week now. A strange change, but totally worth it! Between the CSA and our garden, I think Mike and I will be all set for produce this summer!

So, on to the more exciting news – what we got today and what I plan on doing with it!

Week One

  • Rhubarb
  • Green onions
  • Snap peas
  • Lettuce
And since my parents were away on vacation, we got their half of the share plus their eggs and mushrooms for the week, too!
Now as for a menu plan, here’s what I had in mind:

  1. Everything looks delicious!

    I host a weekly CSA link party and would love for you to be a part of it. Come and check it out and add your link… Hope to see you there 🙂

  2. I definitely want to see a photo of the rhubarb cast iron skillet crisp!

  3. I love the way you structure your CSA post – what you get in the box, and also what you plan to do with it. Sort of makes you commit to it instead of procrastinating like I do. 🙂
