Read more about why I love CSA and locally–grown fruits and veggies here.
Skipped the box this week and went with all a la carte items:
- brown jasmine rice
- creole tomato
- pint of strawberries
- loose leaf elderberry black tea (YUM)
- 3 bunches of $1 clearance kale
- 1 whole chicken (not pictured)
The box was mostly salad greens this week, and I’m the only one in the house who eats salad. Our refrigerator cannot be reasoned with and spoils salad greens in about 24 hours, so it made more sense to go with what we needed instead of the box.
I got a TON of rice and I know I say this every week but local chicken costs more than gold. I don’t know how long my Tyson protest will continue. Sigh. In any case, my total was $33. Not awful, but I expect to see more for that price, you know?
Busy week coming up so we’ll be eating roast chicken with roasted veggies over rice pretty much all week long. Good thing I married a man who loves leftovers.
Have a great Easter week!
