Good morning, all! Monday again already? And mid-May? Man, time is flying… and I sure hope the world doesn’t end on May 21. That only gives us about a week. 😉
Another weekend means another CSA pick up and I am impressed again at the loot I scored!
A ton of fresh, organic broccoli- some which was a bit overgrown and beginning to flower, but still totally usable. I’m making casseroles! 2 cucumbers and a fresh tomato- my FAVORITE.
Organic spinach, organic lettuce, a cantaloupe- which was NOT local, but from Florida from a guy she knew. The secret to a sweet cantaloupe is HOT temperatures, and wherever in Florida has had unusually hot temps, making this one of the hands down tastiest cantaloupes I’ve ever had. I have to admit… it’s already gone. But it was so good.
We also got more ‘onions’. The purply things. Confession: I don’t have a clue what to do with them. What are they? Too big to be green onions… and too purply. Are the scallions? I’m begging any produce gurus out there to please tell me what to do with these guys…
And possibly my favorite thing this week? A tomato plant!
It’s a Black Cherry Tomato plant, and our CSA lady swears they are some of the tastiest tomatoes she’s ever grown. They should grow up to look like this:
And I can’t wait to sink my teeth into them! It’s already been planted, and let’s hope I don’t kill it 🙂
Now without further delay, thank you to everyone that entered the Love Grown Giveaway! The winner is…

Congratulations to Heather!
My favorite way to eat granola is in the trail mix that me and the two people I work with have been making. Peanuts, sunflower seeds, raisins, something a little sweet (chocolate chips or m&m’s) and granola. It is a lot cheaper to buy all the ingredients and make your own we have found and it is much fresher then buying it in the store.
Please send your address to me at Brittany@ahealthysliceoflife.com and I’ll get the granola and the apron to you right away! 🙂
Now, I’m begging y’all, please help me with what to do with those ‘onions’…
