I am so excited to be back in the routine of picking up CSA shares. This winter didn’t seem quite as dismal as some – maybe the selection was better, maybe I’m getting better at planning with root vegetables or maybe I was just distracted by the baby – but I am glad it’s over. I think we have more vegetables in the refrigerator right now than we’ve had for months. It’s so exciting to be at the start of the season, with so many weeks of quality food and cooking opportunities ahead of me.
I know it’s been quiet around here. Trust me, if the amount of time I spent thinking about posting translated to posts appearing, there’d be a lot more to read. The past couple of months I feel like I’ve really been getting back in the swing of things – running, farmers markets, community events, menu planning, productivity. I have actual posts planned for the next couple weeks. I feel like I may actually have some time to write. We’ll see!
