- CSA apple (not sure if it's Golden Delicious, Macintosh, or Empire)
- CSA popcorn
- frozen peaches (thawed)
- vegan pumpkin apple muffin (made with CSA pumpkins and apples)
- spring mix salad with bell pepper and CSA carrots
- homemade chili (kidney beans, veggies, shredded chicken)
We got about 6 of these in this month's haul and we had another 5 or 6 from last month's box. I picked off all the kernels from those little ears on Saturday afternoon. I swear I thought my thumbs were going to fall off. But, it was worth it to have fresh popcorn. Now we have a go to snack.
Again, I'm sort of surprised about the origins of foods that I like (or dislike, in the case of pumpkin). I've never even mildly considered that popcorn comes from EARS OF CORN. I mean, I knew it was corn. Duh! But that it is grown on a corn stalk and then you have to take the kernels off. Revolutionary!
Also, I finally broke down and bought lettuce! I've been missing all of the fresh and delicious lettuce we got over the summer and fall in the CSA haul. This salad definitely wasn't as good as the farm fresh stuff, but it did the trick.
