We’re 2 weeks into the summer CSA season already and I’m thrilled to be getting back in the grove of sharing CSA meal plans here.
In case you’ve forgotten, my family is a member of the Mighty Food Farm CSA in Shaftsbury, Vermont. I just looked up when we joined and we’ve been members since November of 2010! As a result, picking up produce and designing ways to use it on a regular basis is ingrained in our routines. Mighty Food is free choice – each week I place an online order for the items I want, then we pick up our box in Williamstown during the scheduled pick up time. The online ordering came about during covid and it’s been a really nice way to plan in advance what to expect and how to use it. We have a medium sized share which means we get 10 items a week from June to November, then 20 items every other week during our winter share from November to early March.
Last week was the last week of school before summer break and our first CSA pick up was Tuesday. I ended up with only a half completed plan written out and though I know we ate dinner every night, I’m not sure what all of those meals were. This week (the second half of the list below) is much more organized.
The Pick Ups
hamburgers, hot dogs, baked beans and French fries for Father’s Day
Easy Ham & Cheese Croissants (Joy the Baker) with a vegetable I can no longer recall
Buffalo Chicken Sweet Potatoes (adapted from The Car Mom) with kale chips
out to dinner for Brian’s birthday
waffles with strawberries and bacon
kielbasa, pierogies and salad with turnips, cucumbers and radishes
Stir Fry Beef Noodles (Budget Bytes) featuring cucumber, scallions and turnips
