Happy Friday! Now that our Summer CSA is officially underway, I am adding a new addition to the blog: Farm Share Friday. Each week I will feature a round up of meals and recipes that were inspired by that week's farm share. This week I have three great meals to show you: Linguini with Asparagus & Hazelnuts, Sirloin & Strawberry Salad, and a Chicken, Chard and Ricotta Pizza.
Tuesdays are becoming one of my favorite days of the week, at least for the summer, as its the day we get to pick up that week's farm share. Warner Farm makes it so convenient for me. They've partnered with the company I work for, to arrange the CSA pick ups right at our office building every Tuesday between 3:30-6:30pm. At the end of the day, I just drive through the parking lot, and leaving my car running, grab my share and go on home to make some delicious meals.
Usually the weekend before we get an email from the farm that tells us what we can expect that week. It works out perfectly, as I can plan my weekly shopping trip I make on Sunday, around what we will be getting. This weekend I was scribbling down all sorts of ideas based on what we were expecting to get.
