The Dinner Project: Week 18
May 21, 2011
The East Nashville Farmers Market has officially begun, which means so has my CSA. And oh man, having a CSA is pretty sweet. The box I came home with last week included strawberries, green onions, garlic, broccoli, lettuce, spinach and a boatload of chard and kale. Now I eat delicious vegetables all the time and I don’t even have to think about it. The only overwhelming thing about it is looking in your fridge and seeing the bounty you have to go through before next weeks box. But lucky for our new neighbors, they get to reap the benefits of us having too much of a good thing.
By the way, I’ll be writing monthly articles and recipes for the East Nashville Farmers Market this season, so please stop by our blog if you’re interested. It’s a great market!
