CSA Week 6 and Meal Planning

8 Oct

We took another week off from the CSA, but we were back at it yesterday. Here’s the haul boxed:

And laid out:

Before you are:

  • Scallions
  • Cilantro
  • Parsley
  • ?Arugula? (smells like it but doesn’t look like it)
  • Purple basil
  • Basket of peppers
  • Carrots
  • Three avocados
  • Massive bunch of Swiss chard
  • Curly kale
  • Honeydew
  • Two small butternut squashes
  • Four zucchini

Here is the tentative meal plan for the week.

Breakfast: overnight oats because I’m boring



  • Monday — leftover black bean soup (me), soyrizo tacos (him)
  • Tuesday-Friday — Barley-lentil soup
  • Saturday — Leftovers of some kind


Bonus: I am dying to try this recipe from a fellow MoFoer!

And now for the fitness portion of my schedule. (as with last week, all the running is from my training plan):

Monday — Off (might do some strength later, might not)
Tuesday — 3 miles plus strides
Wednesday — Yoga
Thursday — 4 miles easy
Friday — Off (maybe some strength)
Saturday — 2 miles easy plus a walk
Sunday — 5 miles easy (LOLZ)

A note on the “easy” part of my runs. My two-miler last week, as I mentioned, was pretty great. My three-miler was more challenging, but I did it. My next two-miler (on Saturday morning) was really hard for some reason. I blame it jointly on the brightness of the sun (and my lack of sunglasses), the music I chose (bluegrass was not motivating enough), and my bad attitude. I walked a lot of it. Yesterday I did an “easy” four miles, and it kicked my effing ass. I probably ended up running a total of three miles and walking the other one. I ran the first two solid, though, so that was something, but good lord, this run was torturous. I have no idea how I’ll do five next Sunday!

    This makes me miss my CSA shares–didn’t sign up this year.

      I’m lucky that ours isn’t a subscription, so I can’t opt in or out any week I want. It’s no real commitment, and the produce is always excellent.

        Oops! I meant to say I *can* opt in or out each week.
