First CSA day of the Season!!

Yesterday was the first day of  the CSA which I facilitate and host at my home.  I love this time of year when  we receive super fresh (picked that morning!) vegetables.
I had a grand time setting up things yesterday and meeting and greeting all of our last year's members and newbies!

The contents of our boxes included: 
leaf lettuce 
 baby swiss chard,
green onions,
white sweet potatoes
 and asparagus!
  Wow!!!  What a great start to the season!

No pictures this time as it was a super busy day for me and my family...I also had a couple contractors at my home during our pick up hours.
If you live in my area, it is not too late to join the CSA.  Contact me through Facebook at Eat Well Fitness  or you can go to Local to find a CSA near you.

Here is super easy and quick fix meal...super fresh and yummy!
