I just love fennel!  I used to dislike it... but then I had it the right way =)

Can't wait to roast these turnips!

And Mindy over at The World In My Kitchen was the only person to turn in her CSA this week - thanks again Mindy!
Mindy got Salad Greens, Carrots, Red Leaf Lettuce, Red Butterhead Lettuce, a Jade Cucumber, Hakauri Salad Turnips, Oregano, & Snow Peas - Looks great Mindy!

There's got to be more of you with CSAs that want to share!  Maybe next week =)

***If you guys received a CSA this week, what did you end up getting?  I'd love to have a weekly round-up of your CSA goodies (if you participate in one), or even if you made a weekly visit to your Farmer's market (or even just picked from your own garden!) - I'd love to see the local produce everyone gets!  So feel free to e-mail a snapshot of your goods (as well as your name and blog title (and don't worry if you don't have a blog, your name will be just fine!) as well as a link to your blog) at mtlabor85 (at) yahoo (dot) com and I'll post them in next Thursday's CSA post!  


  1. Hey there! I lurve your veggie pics. :-D. As one "used to be fennel hater" to another, have you ever tried roasted fennel? I LOVE it. I usually roast fennel, onions and bell peppers (or whatever else I have in the fridge) at 425 till they start to caramelize. Then, I toss them + roasting juices with pasta (or rice, or quinoa) and italian sausage (or not). Sooo delicious. (I just found your blog, and have been reading through it, so my apologies if I missed a simialr recipe!)

    What is your favorite turnip recipe?? I just got some in my CSA box and I'm clueless! I also got strawberries, honeydew melon, green cabbage, sweet peppers, and nantes carrots.

  2. All the veggies look so good!:)
    I just found out what CSA was, after googling it... It seems that we don't have a place nearby, so I'm going to check out the farmer's market, once the weather gets getter.

  3. Hey, Peggy.
    I am making a section in my blog for favorite blogs. May I put your blog on the list?

  4. I love fennel too! It's great in salads or stir-fries. Got some veggies and fruit from the farmer market yesterday too.

  5. I never used fennel bulb until I made Bouillabaisse. It is tasty and I'd love to know what else I can use for!

  6. Unfotunately no CSAs here...I'm jealous.

  7. There was an article about CSA in one of my foodie magazines and I tought of you. Sure wish we had that around here.

  8. It's only recently that I have started using fennel bulb in my kitchen. I still remember first thing that I used these bulbs was in my soup.

  9. Great haul! Can't wait to see what you'll make!

  10. sad to say its difficult to find fennel at Malaysia although the rest of the veg is pretty to get.

  11. A basket full of fresh veggies like those is very heart warming for me :)

  12. Fun! I'm so ticked i didn't make it in to a CSA this year but I go to the farmers market regularly.
    I'd love to know what you do with the fennel.

  13. Wow---what a great week :)

    I will be farmer's market shopping this CSA, but I plan to buy lots of awesome greens and veggies.

  14. So many beautiful veggies - can't wait to see what you did with them. Have a great weekend!

  15. Love this idea! No CSA, but I can try to remember to send on our garden and CSA goodies each week!

  16. Loves your vege picture, have a nice day
