week 23 of plowshare produce

We only have one more week of our CSA from Plowshare Produce left. Unfortunately we won't be here next summer/fall, and so aren't signing up again, but I encourage all of you to consider signing up for a weekly, or bi-weekly share!!

This Week’s Veggies: potatoes or sweet potatoes, butternut squash, onions, beets, celeriac, broccoli, radishes, kohlrabi, kale or chard, spinach, mesclun, parsley or dill, thyme  

We choose not to get the mesclun or herbs because I don't want them to go to waste. You'll see we also picked up a loaf of locally baked bread (from Gemelli's) and a dozen "happy chicken", cage-free eggs.

When it gets cold, it's nice to have hot soup, but sometimes they are a little heavy. Below is a keilbasa soup I ate growing up that I really loved, using mostly ingredients from out plowshare:

Keilbasa Soup:
1 keilbasa (here I used turkey keilbasa)
1 small cabbage (from last week's plowshare)
4 small potatoes, diced (from last week's plowshare)

~2 cups green beans (these were frozen from a previous plowshare)
1 can stewed tomatoes

Layer ingredients in a crock pot (works best if potatoes are on the bottom). Add water until veggies are just covered. Cook on high until potatoes are fork tender.
