First Share – A Red Letter Day!

This is the day I wait for every spring. The day we receive our first CSA share! And I am happy to say, I am not disappointed in the least!

Here is a list of what we received today.

  • Mushrooms
  • Green leaf lettuce
  • Red romaine lettuce
  • Baby greens
  • Kale
  • Radishes
  • Onions
  • Rhubarb
  • Mint

Of course, we’ve already used a couple of things. We used half of the mushrooms in Cavatappi with Wild Mushrooms, It’s a recipe from The Classic Pasta Cookbook by Giuliana Hazan that’s one of our favorites. Before dinner we had a mint julep with farm fresh mint, and of course a big salad with radishes, onions and lettuce.

I’ll report on what we do with the rest of our share later in the week.
