What's in My CSA Box?

Posted 1/23/2014 4:27pm by Jill Rendleman.

Mixed lettuce greens, spinach, sweet potatoes, and butternut squash adorn your box this week.  In addition, some home made noodles from K-Noodles.  Kelly uses all natural ingredients for her wonderful homemade noodles.  She has a variety of different types and flavors of noodles, I like the garlic chives because it goes well with spinach!  Read the package description to see that these noodles need very little cook time....just in and out of the water basically or you will end up with moosh.  If you braise the spinach in a little olive oil and garlic and salt while cooking the noodles, then take a small handful of shredded parmesean and a little shredded mozzarella cheese and toss together with a little olive oil or butter....wonderful.  If you set the sweet potato in the oven to roast about 30 minutes before at 350, then you will have a hearty, healthy colorful meal.  K-Noodles sells at the Carbondale Community Market at CCHS or you can call her on the contact information I included in your box.  I sent out the butternut squash soup recipe prior, so i wont repeat, but also to note, if you were going to save the sweet potato for another meal, you can  carve up a little of the butternut and braise it and toss into the noodles.   

The winter has really been severe and I appreciate your patience with the winter crops.  When produce is flowing like it did early fall,  that bounty is shared with CSA members by going above normal counts in the boxes.....hopefully you remember that and like me, dance to the sun rays and pray for more soon!   Do expect lower than normal box levels in the coming weeks, to be made up for later.  thanks for your patience.   jill
