What’s the point of this post? To get you excited about next week’s CSA share and help you prep your pantry & fridge for items on this coming week’s tremendously exciting menu! It is winter squash season, so we’ll be getting a different winter squash every week. This week we got ‘Fairy’ winter squash, which […]
Hey everyone! This delicious recipe uses kale, lentils, thyme, rosemary and onions from the CSA. The pork sausage and garlic powder are local, too. All you need are some sweet potatoes and you’ve got a very delicious, very nutritious meal!
