This week our CSA included:
green onions, oranges, beets, lots of strawberries, rainbow chard, and lettuce. We picked up some cherry tomatoes at the farmer’s market, as well.
I’ve never really cooked with beets. So, I look forward to the challenge. I plan on making a beet cake to ease into it, because when in doubt, add chocolate.
I’m just a few days away from running my 10k. It’s on Saturday. I’m nervous, but ready to get it over with. My body is sick of being perpetually sore and t’s getting too hot to run in the evenings after work. With that being said, I’ve been having a great time competing with myself and comparing my distances and times with each progressing week. And I’m still entirely amazed that I can run 6.2 miles. Also, I have the most supportive friends.
I stopped in the store and picked up a pack of Abita Strawberry (limited release). This is the first time I’ve seen it in stores, but I had it when we went to the Abita Brewery. I know it’s not champagne, but can I drink it with a few of the strawberries from the CSA? I bet it will be amazing.
