What’s for Dinner?

People are always asking me, ‘What the heck do you get in your CSA in the winter?!?” Have I mentioned the wonderful winter fruit that arrives each week? SO many varieties of tasty local apples and pears. These are not what I plan my dinners around, certainly, but sure do make a nice fruit salad at breakfast, a perfect snack, and an every-day lunch box treat. Not to mention regular dinner-time additions to salads. And PIES! But the mainstay CSA delivery is lots and lots of those gorgeous veggies – sometimes a little less kale and a little more cabbage or chard; sometimes a little less beets and a little more parsnips or celeriac. But the great thing is, we never feel like we’re eating the same thing over and over again. The veggie combinations and preparations are endless. This week, with inspiration from the New Seasons Market Flyer, I’m tossing a dash of zesty citrus into each dinner…a little bit of a de-winterizer in these dark January days.
