Today's prompt is:We joined a CSA for the first time. I felt we were stuck in a rut with food choices and wanted to try something new. And a great bonus was that it supported local farmers!! YEA!
Every week we got a bag of groceries and either a cheese or farm fresh eggs. We were all excited about it!! I should clarify I am not a cook. I do not enjoy anything about cooking. I have been a out of a box or restaurant type of person my whole life. So I was excited to try new things and hopefully eat healthier.
We tried things like kohlrabi and beets and kale and squash and eggplant. And this:
Did I like all these new flavors? Hmmmm....hard to say. Some YES!! and some OH HELL NO!! Over the summer I posted a lot of pictures of food on Facebook asking what I got and what do I do with it. :) And some weeks I was excited to try something new and others ....well the food just went to waste or to other people.
Will I do the CSA next year? No, probably not. Mostly because we are a family of 5 and some weeks we would get 1 beet or 2 potatoes. Well what doesn't feed a family of 5. Also, there wasn't enough of what I consider normal vegetables. My plan for next year is to just go to the farmer markets. With all that said I am still definitely glad I did it. As I got to try new things and that was fun.
