allandale farm csa, the final week

I can’t believe our CSA is over!!  It was an awesome experience and I loved picking up our produce at the farm each week, but…it was a pretty annoying drive to and from each week.

To me, it was worth it because we received fresh, locally grown produce each week and we were able to create meals and recipes from those.  I used to look through my cookbooks and decide what we were going to make during the week, then buy everything that I needed.  But, by just winging it instead, we have saved so much money!  Instead of just picking up what we need for a certain meal, we created a meal with what we had.  We used more pantry items and created delicious, simple dinners that would fit into anyone’s budget.

I’m sad to see it end, but hopefully we’ll find one closer next year!

Most items that we received this week will last for weeks ahead, such as squashes, onions and garlic.
