This week's basket contained:
- 5 hydroponic tomatoes
- 1 small head red-leaf lettuce
- 1 large bunch basil
- 1 small bag baby carrots
- 1 jar mild salsa
- 3 rib eye steaks
The produce content of this week's basket was a little skinny compared to previous baskets. That's okay. This is the first year that Grasshopper's is doing winter produce. And getting 5 nice tomatoes pretty much makes up for any volume shortcomings.
The tomatoes, lettuce, and carrots will go into a salad. I'll be adding Romaine lettuce, radishes, a cucumber, and fresh mushrooms.
I'll use the basil in a spinach-and-basil pesto.
Having a jar of locally-made salsa puts me in the mind of making some Mexican food. Next weekend perhaps.
The rib eye steaks go into the freezer. I seriously have to make an effort to make meals that use more meat. In that spirit I plan on using a CSA chicken to make a curry this Saturday. I'm also planning on using some CSA bratwurst for a few simple dinners.
FOOD: It's what's for dinner.
