First Week from La Finca

Filed under: CSA — tj @ 11:45 am

Yesterday was the first day for the delivery of our CSA produce from La Finca, and we were excited as all get out. My co-worker Jeff has been a customer of these guys for a while, and he hooked us up with their information when the sign-ups came out. They had some examples of what we could get from the farm, but it was still basically a mystery box to us. I stopped by Jeff’s on the way home from work, put the check box by my name, and took my box and went home!

Erica and I started digging through our goodies, and we find salad mix, arugula, bok choy, green garlic, radishes, spinach, and red leaf lettuce. As is her nature, she decides to clean and bag everything, so it’ll be ready when we need it. She claims this is not something she learned from Rachel Ray (lies). All the produce looks really good, even though we’re not entirely sure what to do with all of it. A couple taste tests though, and we come up with some good ideas.

The majority of what we got this week was greens, which is understandable, since it’s early in the season. The first thing that we make is a lunch salad, with mixed greens, fake crab, avocado, pine nuts, and sliced radish. This was all Erica’s idea. The salad was delicious though, and I’m looking forward to eating the rest of the goodies we got.
