CSA Week 9 and Meal Planning

5 Nov

Hey everyone! I took a weekend off from the internet (other than the time sucks that are Facebook and Twitter, of course), so I’m presenting my CSA haul and weekly meal plan a little late once again. My apologies! However, we’re pretty excited about this week’s food.

First, though, is the weekly CSA share:

Before you are:

  • Big bunch of arugula
  • Swiss chard
  • Green onions
  • Celery
  • Parsley
  • Butternut squash
  • Two honeycrisp apples (we ate one last night — incredible!)
  • Meyer lemon
  • Three beets
  • Two heads of broccoli

As of right now, we also have another butternut, some Japanese eggplant, and a bunch of Swiss chard left over from the week before. So what’s the food plan for the week?

Breakfast: polenta with roasted summer squash and eggplant and Swahili Ginger and Milk Tea



  • Monday/TuesdayVegan Cornbread Casserole and sauteed Swiss chard
  • Wednesday/Thursday — Portobello mushrooms burgers and salad
  • Friday — Butternut Squash Pasta
  • Saturday — Something special to be determined for my husband’s birthday!

As far as working out goes, I’m trying to ease back into the 10k training plan this week. I definitely fell out of sync between preparing to leave town and then being gone for a week. I’m excited to get back to it, though, especially since daylight savings means the sun will be out when I depart in the mornings. (The ONLY good thing about falling back on the west coast. It gets dark so early here!) I’m also thinking about signing up for a 5k “turkey trot” on Thanksgiving. I’m still trying to decide if it’s worth the $30 or if I should just go for a run that morning on my own.

So that’s it for this week’s planning. I’ll be back later today with a recipe from this weekend!

Every week, I link up with In Her Chucks’ “What’s in the Box?” series. Click here to check out this week’s collection of CSA hauls!

      I love my CSA so much! I’m lucky that it’s yearround, so I get a fun variety of items. Welcome!
