CSA Weeks 9 & 10 -Rachel and Dan

My sister got married this past Friday! The weather was perfect, everyone was very happy, we got to see our family and friends and make new family and friends.  It was very lovely. And my sister’s new husband (also named Dan) is a wild-about-food, gardening, bee-keeping, vegetable lover.  So we like him a lot.

Unfortunately, since we went up north on Wednesday (the day after our CSA pick-up) we didn’t eat any of the vegetables we got last week, other than the handful of u-pick cherry tomatoes, which we ate before we even left the farm.  We got back on Sunday, still didn’t eat any veggies, ate pizza on Monday because of our crazy schedule, and then picked up more vegetables on Tuesday.  We are overflowing.

We also have nearly 5 dozen eggs from our egg share.  Time to make angel food cake, or something.  Maybe a meringue.  Maybe angel food cake topped with meringue.
