In the CSA box this week

This was a very exciting food day for our house. Our quarter steer was ready to be picked up. My mom and I made the trek out to Smithville to pick up the meat. We loaded it up and now we have a packed freezer. I was excited to use some for supper tonight! We also got our CSA box today. In the box:

red leaf lettuce
green leaf lettuce
salad turnips
bok choy
a dozen eggs

I left some kohlrabi and kale in the trade box in exchange for double portions of chard and spinach.

A few menu ideas for the week:
Wednesday: Tacos on Rice (Rice, Ground beef, cheese, green leaf lettuce, crushed tortilla chips, tomato juice, and salsa)
Thursday: Ham and Cheese Strombolis (with arugula)
Friday: Bok Choy Tortellini Soup
Saturday: A chard or spinach recipe
Sunday: Leftovers for lunch and a chef salad supper
Monday: A chard or spinach recipe

A baby coming could easily change this menu....we'll see!
