Every Wednesday afternoon, Boo and I make our trip to "The Farm," as we call it. It's a place about 7 miles from our house, where's we've joined as CSA members. Every Wednesday, we get our share of vegetables and fruit that are organically grown, bio-diversely farmed, sprouting from non-GMO heirloom seeds.
I enjoy finding out, by email, what will fill our cupboard each week. I love that Jinsok knows where his food comes from. I love he knows who grows his food, that she works hard, that food comes in cycles and seasons, that sometimes they grow well and sometimes they don't. But that each time we make our 7 mile trek, we're getting something really fresh - like 1 minute fresh - and that no chemicals are leeching into the waters.
I was hoping that joining a CSA would inspire me to cook more at home. And it's working!! Fortunately we like a variety of greens and we like our food rather simply prepared. Tonight we had (grass-fed) beef and sage sausages, beans, Swiss shard (chard) with some Ezekiel bread.

|Cook the stems first in raw coconut oil and garlic; add the leafy parts and add soup soy sauce to taste.|
