Friends & Farms CSA week 4.. vegetarian

So the last few weeks, we have purchased the large basket from Friends and Farms, and while we have been very satisfied, we haven’t found the need for so much meat, while at the same time feeling as though we need to supplement our vegetarian proteins in other ways.

So this week, we opted for the Vegetarian basket instead.

I ordered a few extras this week:
1 Whole Chicken
1 Dozen Free Range Eggs
1 Gallon Whole Milk
1 Apple Butter (19 oz)
2 lbs Split Peas
2 lbs Red Beans

I paid 32.00 for these “extra” items, and I had some apples added in to make up for the apples we got last week that were conventionally grown.

The rest was included in our vegetarian share this week.



Here’s this week’s line up:
1 lb popcorn
1 lb green lentils
1 lbs Scottish oatmeal
1 dozen eggs (we ordered the other one extra)
1 lb frozen broccoli
1 lb frozen butternut squash puree
5 red skinned potatoes
4 big honey crisp apples
3 big bunches of Kale
9 big carrots
8 oz colby jack cheese
1/2 gallon milk (+ 1/2 gallon 2%)
1 bag fresh mushrooms
1 big bag spinach
1 head bibb lettuce

There was a small mix up as to our milk this week, we have opted out of their weekly milk share and instead get extra cheese, and that wasn’t noted. We instead got the weekly share of milk, and they didn’t have marked our extra gallon that was purchased, so we will instead be getting our extra cheese and other half gallon of milk at next week’s pick up. They kindly offered to bring it out to me right away, but I declined, not wanting to waste them time, money or gas all the way out here.

So we got AMAZING drinkable yogurt this week, Mango Peach. Not too sweet, not too sour, organic…. I cannot say enough awesome things about this, I LOVE it. I imagine it will make fantastic smoothie pops too.

Next week’s menu highlights include

Pasta E Figioli, Sweet Potato Pie, Vegetarian Shepherd’s Pie, Homemade Mac & Cheese, Pulled BBQ Pork, and Quiona and Black Bean Salad…

🙂 Happy Eating!
