The CSA Challenge

IMG_2606Several years ago, I joined a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture).  A CSA delivers fresh, organic, produce to your door at a frequency of your choosing.  I always get interesting and unexpected things and this has taught me to get creative with my food.  It’s also why I keep my pantry well stocked because it allows me to use all this great produce.

Because the produce is local, and just picked, they last forever.  Herein lies my issue.  I can’t seem to use it all.  I get a shipment every 3 weeks, and because it’s just Alex and me, and both of us travel for work and have other commitments, I have a hard time getting through all these little (and big) gems.

So, here’s my goal. For this shipment, I will chronicle the journey of all my CSA fruits and veggies and share them with you.  My goal: tasty food, highlight the ingredient, and zero waste.  Wish me luck!

Oh! And if you have any ideas, for my CSA challenge, please share them in the comments.
