CSA Week 4: A little late but a lot of delicious

Sorry to post this so late, but I felt like I needed a break from life. Now that I've recovered, I figured it's time to share the down-low on last week's delivery. I'm saddened to say that it's not just the posts that I've had trouble keeping up with: I've been having some trouble eating the deliveries as well.

Last week I received a pound of fresh peas, two bell peppers, four yellow squash, three zucchini, two heads of bok choy, eight round zucchini and four peaches. The peaches, by the way, were absolutely delicious, and I was able to use up all the round zucchini on Monday, when I had a cookout. I grilled up all the zucchini over the fire with some olive oil and Italian seasoning.

Price breakdown

  • 1 lb. fresh peas: $3.49
  • 2 green bell peppers: $3.98
  • 4 yellow squash: $6.73
  • 3 zucchini +  8 round zucchini: $14.40
  • 2 heads of bok choy: $2.54
  • 4 peaches: $3.13
      • Total: $34.46
    • Total saved: $13.46
    The bok choy, by the way, is delicious brushed with a butter seasoning mixture and grilled over the open flame for a few minutes.
