My friend Maureen and I are splitting a CSA this year and I am extremely excited about it. For those who don't know CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. Basically, it's from farm to table with little travel in between. Every week a box of local, fresh and in our case organic vegetables are dropped off for us usually at a farmers market or a predetermined destination.
Even though I am pumped, I am also a little nervous. There will be so many new vegetables that I may have tried in a restaurant or two but never cooked at home. I see many cookbook research projects and recipe blog hunts in my future.
