Our First CSA Box!

We're very excited: this is our first week participating in Community Supported Agriculture (CSA). Every week we get a box of goodies from a local farm. We are getting fresh produce and eating seasonally, so our food will be healthier, and our meat and eggs come from animals that are grass-fed (also a health benefit) and well-treated (a moral benefit). But most immediately important, we are getting stuff we wouldn't necessarily buy ourselves that now we get to figure out how to cook and eat!

In this week's box:

2 pork chops
1 dozen eggs
4 tomatoes
2 bags of yellow beans
4 ears of corn
10 brown potatoes
1 green pepper
3 white eggplants
