Time to kick the dinner doldrums! CSA season is almost here!

Posted 5/4/2018 3:00pm by John and Aimee Good.

I definitely get the dinner doldrums, near the end of winter, when we are still eating the same root vegetables that we have been eating since November. I end up making the same meals over and over again, and find myself getting bored in the kitchen.

But I know that when spring comes, the CSA season will soon begin, and I will not be wondering,  "what should I make for dinner?"

The vegetables tell me what to make for dinner! I get so excited to wash, chop, and cook the beautiful fresh farm veggies.  (OK, maybe not the washing part, but definitely the chopping and cooking!) And I just use the vegetables as the starting point for all my meals.

In June, when fresh greens and berries are abundant, we enjoy lots of salads, changing up the dressings and extras. Stir-fry is a great quick dinner, using the fresh broccoli, scallions, zucchini and greens; changing up the sauces (soy-ginger, spicy peanut, sweet & sour) and the proteins (shrimp, chipped beef, crispy tofu) and the starch (rice, wide rice noodles, soba noodles) keeps it interesting.

But the spring farm season is short, really just June, and then the summertime is here, and the cooking is easy! Big fat tomato sandwiches, crisp cucumber salads, grilled zucchini, luscious sweet corn, juicy melons. Can't wait!

I don't know if this is making you hungry, but it is working on me.

The beauty of the CSA is that it is so simple. You are given a share of the harvest. Period. What comes with this is a free gift: creativity and inspiration in the kitchen, the satisfaction of an amazing meal. And it is really not so hard to get from raw vegetables to an amazing meal, because the quality of the ingredients is the foundation. Every good chef knows this.


Free yourself from the dinner doldrums. Experience farm-to-table eating from your own kitchen. Yes, you can do it, because it starts with the ingredients.
