Our house is ruled by kids. Whether it’s our own two or them in combination with the others in my home daycare, their moods and level if cooperation impact a lot of what we do. So that being said here is a very quick post for this weeks CSA bin as this is all the … Continue reading CSA December 11
I have no fancy name for this because I don’t really have any idea what to call it. I do know that many people have no idea what to do with all the cabbage they have received in their CSA.

Our weekly meal plans always include a full chicken. We usually roast it in the oven but occasionally will cook it in the slow cooker (generally in the summer since roasting a chicken for 1.5-2 hours is sometimes just too hot). As I was making our dinner today I thought to myself, ‘I should move north so I can roast meals 365 days a year!’ But Tom would never go for that – even if I guaranteed delicious meals daily.
So I must say I am incredibly proud of how well we did at using all of our produce from the last delivery. Last year we struggled to use everything but we started this season with a new plan. That plan is to plan! Last bin we made a list of what was in it … Continue reading CSA October 29
