What’s for Dinner?

Holey Moley!  I am not easily impressed (overwhelmed) by veggie volume, but my pick-up this week definitely inspired a nervous chuckle.  My “summer CSA”, Sauvie Island Organics (SIO), launched its season this week.  Maybe my eyes got wide because it’s been awhile since I personally physically loaded the weekly bounty into my take home bags (my “winter CSA” provided a box direct to my doorstep.)  And even though I received an email ahead of time, detailing each of the farm fresh items I was to receive, it really wasn’t until I lay my own eyes on the giant box of produce that was to become my family’s dinners, and touched it all with my own two hands, did it come full force.  I loved listening to a fellow customer, who’d come to pick up her very first CSA share ever.  She was oohing, and aahing, making noises between pure delight and sheer bewilderment.  I struck up a conversation with her, assuring her that she’d surely end up loving this CSA relationship on which she was embarking.  She smiled brightly and said, “Look at all these veggies I’m going to figure out what to do with!  My mother would be so proud!”  I agree.
