CSA Appreciation Day and Recipes!
Saturday brought the most perfect fall day for our CSA Appreciation dinner.
We ate and talked and squawked at the geese and enjoyed the bounty of a summer well-spent.
Thanks to all of you who came and thanks to all of you who put your faith in us to grow your food and all of you who put the community in community supported agriculture.
Set up was, as were most other things, a family affair. (Man, our parents are awesome.)
And, Willa was a big help herself, looking all hillbilly and whatnot. This is what we call her Willabilly look.
And now, the recipes (click the name for each recipe):
Bronze barley with cucumber dill dressing (By Mark Bittman)
Prairie Farro (our brand of Emmer) salad with basil and tomatoes and zucchini (This was a slight variation on the Bluebird Grain Farm recipe the link goes to.)
Black chickpea salsa (Substituting black chickpeas for the black beans, of course and in the party dish, I used half tomatillos and half tomatoes.)
Lentil hummus (only I added about a 1/2 Tablespoon of cumin)
And, the heritage turkey
