The veggies differ every week from whatever the farm is producing. So, every week on Thursday afternoon I hop in my car to pick up my CSA. It's one of the highlights of my week. It's like getting a fresh, gorgeous bouquet when I pick up my little white boxes brimming over with red tomatoes, green cucumbers, yellow squash and even purple bell peppers!

Getting this share was an experiment for us, but we have found it's actually helped us save on our grocery bill substantially -- we start from scratch and use all we can -- and it's forced us to be creative in the kitchen. I never would have purchased an eggplant before, but this summer alone I've had over a dozen eggplants come in my share, so I've made baba ganoush, eggplant ragout, and something else eggplant that wasn't quite successful.

This Sunday, I'm grateful to have the opportunity to eat delicious, healthy, local food. I feel more connected to my food and truly appreciative of the process by which it comes to me. I enjoy tasting the season and a true joy of cooking has taken over our house!
