CSA Box: August 8

Read more about why I love CSA and locally–grown fruits and veggies here.

This week’s box:


  • 4 peppers
  • 2 eggplant
  • 3 red potatoes
  • okra
  • 3 bell peppers
  • 4 gala apples
  • acorn squash
  • turnips
  • kombucha

A la carte items:


  • patty pan squash
  • 2 heirloom tomatoes

My total was $34 even.

Pretty much all of the items in this week’s box went into spaghetti sauce. My spaghetti sauce recipe tends to be ground turkey + onions and garlic + tomatoes + all the vegetables I think I can get away with sneaking in. I made a HUGE pot this week because I’m working on filling the freezer with as much as I can before this sweet baby gets here. It’s been pretty fun to plan—you know, if you find Type A organizational stuff fun—so I’m sure I’ll bore you to tears with a whole post about it.

Can’t stand the wait? Okay, here’s a sneak peek.


Anything delicious going on? Any favorite freezer meals I should know about? I’m all ears!
