MY OH MY did we get a huge share this week! One of the amazing things about being a part of the CSA Share at Greensleeves Farm is that if you are out of town or cannot pick up your share on a given week, as long as you let them know in advance you can skip that week and get double the goodies the following week. Over Labor Day weekend we went away to celebrate our 5 year anniversary and so this week we got 2 weeks worth of food in one week. Looks like I will be doing a lot of cooking this weekend to make sure no food goes to waste. My husband already requested my Roasted Beet & Veggie Quinoa recipe since we got nice large beets this week so I will definitely be adding that to our weekly meal plan.
And guess what time of the year it is? It’s Football Season and you know what that means…the hot chili is in the crock pot and the cold beer is in hand. I love fall weather and fall recipes! It might be my favorite time of the year to cook, especially in the crock pot. Nothing is better than quickly throwing dinner together in the morning and coming home after work and having a hot dinner ready to be devoured. I am so happy we had such an abundance of tomatoes this year between our home garden and our CSA Shares that I was able to Freeze Tomatoes to have them on hand for chili, soups, and sauces all fall and winter long. If you want to know how to Freeze Tomatoes be sure to check out that post. Take a look below at our lovely share!
