Terra Bella Family Farm CSA: week 4

I can't believe it's already been 4 weeks since this whole CSA thing started!  It's quite a reminder of how quickly time goes by...

This week we received

2 boxes of strawberries
1 box of baby plums
1 head green leaf lettuce
1 bunch collards
choice of summer squash
brownie and a chocolate cookie (a very large, amazingly delicious cookie)

I really should have skipped the dessert box - the brownie and the cookie.  I could have walked on by, put it in the trade or donate box but no, the chocolate was calling my name.  We don't eat a lot of dessert and if we do, it's usually fruit based.  But wow - this cookie was good.  Big enough for sharing for sure.  We had a little bit of the brownie on top of some Cefiore original tart frozen yogurt (a product I'm only slightly obsessed with).  A perfect way to end the day!

You get cookies too?!?!?!?! Wow! The veggies look great but I want to see that cookie! :)

I know HayMarket - isn't that the greatest? I edited the post so you can see the cookie (I take lots of pictures of everything :-))

I'm envious. Your CSA share is TOTALLY 1000% better than mine is each week. Last week was beets, turnips and some kind of nasty-looking cauliflower for us. Ick!

oh PJ...come to California and I'll share! and we can have a middle east feast :-) But on the subject of beets - have you ever tried the beet roesti in Mark Bittman's How to Cook Everything? It's FAB.
