I'm oh so happy

I'm so happy. We just joined a CSA, which for us means a medium sized box of organic, locally-grown fruits and veggies in the kitchen once a week. If I can't be a farmer, at least the farm can come to me. Woo hoo! Yesterday we got our first box. The kids tore it open as soon as we got it onto our front porch. It was like Christmas.

What to make with all this goodness?

I made my variation on a Dutch dish of potatoes and carrots, boiled and mashed (hutsput). I topped it with pork sausage fried up with kale. We usually serve it with butter, salt and freshly ground black pepper. If you really want to be fancy, drizzle it with balsamic vinegar. Heaven.
