I know I have professed my love of farmers markets on here. But sometimes, I wish I was picking up a CSA box. It would be convenient and would force us to eat more vegetables so they don't go to waste. Lately, I haven't been feeling that inspired when it comes to cooking which is strange for me, so I would love to discover new things through my CSA box. I also have been wanting to cook what looks good and what is in season versus planning on what to buy ahead of time.
Each spring, I debate whether or not to join one. But then, I get nervous. What if I can't figure out what to make with certain items? What if I waste food?
The one I want to join here is only two weeks in, so I could easily still join. I guess I am wondering what your thoughts are on this. Do any of you have a CSA membership? How do you plan meals? Are there certain things you keep on hand to create meals? What is the craziest thing you have gotten in your box?
