Lancaster Farm Fresh CSA Week 7

First things first. We have moved our blog! Our new home is at Wordpress. If you are viewing this in Google Reader then everything should have switched over a-ok. If not, here is the link to our new blog location!: HelloPA

I know this can be a pain, but I really hope everyone will keep reading! We just started having some issues with Blogger.

Another round from the CSA this week. I traded out 2 zucchini for a green pepper and a bag of mini-white cucumbers for another head of green cabbage. We have so many cucumbers and still waiting to pickle them all... hopefully it will happen this week since I wasnt able to find pickling salt yet. Does "pickling salt" make a difference?

2 lemon cucumbers – certified organic – Elm Tree Organics


2 head green cabbage – certified organic – Green Valley Organics


2 green zucchini – certified organic – Bellview and Rolling Ridge Organics


1 bag red and yellow slicing tomatoes – certified organic – Green Valley Organics


1 bag red potatoes


1 green bell pepper


Tonight we used some of the CSA groceries to make ourselves a little slaw. We first julienned the green cabbage, green zucchini, lemon cucumber, yellow zucchini, carrots, beets, and cilantro. And a quick dressing of soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, sriracha, a touch of agave, black pepper, chili flakes, and granulated garlic.

First time using lemon cucumbers. They have a thicker skin than regular cucumbers which a slight scent/taste of citrus.


Dinner time.


Lauren also threw together some skillet fried chickpeas and red potatoes. Add in some cashew cream, corn, and a sprinkle of cilantro and your set.
