Adventures in the Kitchen: CSA Week #5

The farm that we get our CSA box from is about 3 hours away from our house. But the farmer does a drop for 10 families in our area at a house that is about a mile from our house. So today Rebekah and I took a walk up to get our veggie box. And since my parents are in town for the week, they came with us too. A family walk (well, minus Daniel who is hard at work) and some fresh veggies make for a great summer day! Here is what is in this week's box:

Beets, lettuce, cucumbers, broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini, yellow squash, onion, tomatoes, and some black raspberries! 

I don't think I have every had black raspberries before. They are a bit smaller than red raspberries, and a little sweeter too. Yum! 

Tonight for dinner we are having Inside Out Egg Rolls like these ones from Nutmeg Notebook  because we are still trying to use a few things from last week's box, like cabbage and green onions. 

And I'm pretty excited for the beets in this box!  I LOVE beets. I know, it's kinda a weird thing to love. I like them just cooked with a little honey. Or Roasted. Or on salad. 
I just discovered a blog called My Heart Beets, and it has tons of beet recipes!
Beets are just so pretty, and added to any dish make is such a pretty purple/pink color! 
Do you like beets?
Do you have a favorite way to eat beets? 


  1. LOL - I need the Beet recipes! We have beets coming out of our ears from our CSA. I mean, no one likes beets THAT much!! Jealous of your black raspberries! So cool!

  2. I love pickled beets and harvard beets. Yum!!! Those berries look like blackberries.
