So my girlfriend and I have been doing this Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) thing all summer. You pay a lump sum of money at the beginning of the season – around June – and you get a shipment from a local farm every week with brand new veggies and fruits and awesome stuff. The shipment changes slightly every week and everything is in season.

Sometimes we still have to buy produce from the grocery store, but we did the math and it's actually been saving us money. Here is a picture of a shipment from a few weeks ago.

We make tons of good food with this food. Like tacos:

Assorted fruits and vegetables plates:

And many many salads:

Let’s talk about what makes our mouths water.

    Varies from farm to farm and what kind of package you get. There are usually half shares and full shares. a Half would easily be enough for one person. We decided to do a full share because my girlfriend loves to cook and eat healthy. Plus we eat a whooooole lot of produce, even before we did the CSA, so it really made sense for us. We paid $500 up front for 19 weeks straight of one shipment a week.

    That comes out to roughly $25 a week. You can get cheaper depending on the farm, half shares are obviously much more inexpensive.

    so basically anywhere from $200-600, depending on what you do.

    only real problem is that the money is paid up front and if there is a flood or drought, you can kinda get shafted. but it also supports local agriculture and all that other hippy stuff.

    I am a dainty eater, but I love food with a passion. I am constantly on the lookout for anything that I haven't tried yet and have garnered a reputation as an adventerous eater.

    Snake meat? Sure.

    Horse? Why not.

    Dog? Was it ugly?

    We dont cook as much as we should around the house. A shame because my mother is a good cook when she really puts her mind to it. As for me? My heart has its sights set upon cuisine but my hands betray me. That said, I can whip up some excellent crepes and I make a mean soup. I cant tell my mother but when it comes to soup anything she creates pales in comparison to what I make.

    The secret is stock. Lots and lots of stock. And don't underestimate the importance of herbs and spices. Traditional mexican families have a habit of creating bland broths on the assumption you will assault it with salt, lemon and chile or hotsauce of some sort upon arrival.

    Shit. This, THIS.

    Delicious but damn it it isn't a pain to make. It is something to cook on special occasions and chances are I will never cook this in my adult life. You have to roast the peppers and burn the top layer of skin. Then you have to peel the top burnt layer off. You cant wash them under water because it strips the peppers of the flavors, and when you have several to peel for the family it can easily eat up 30-40 minutes. Is isn't that easy because it sticks to you skin.

    No fun.

    Texture can vary greatly. I'm assuming your exposure has mainly been to portobellos.

    I don't think mushrooms are even vegetables. Vegetables are plants, right? Fungi are in another category.

    In the culinary classification, they are vegetables.

    Edit: Just like tomatoes, which are taxonomically fruit.

    Oh, really? That's interesting. I wonder why they aren't in the same category where biology puts them. Especially because their nutritional values are not the same at all.

    yeah, but it's kinda like the whole a tomato is a fruit thing. doesn't really matter what they are classified as, for cooking purposes they are treated as a vegetables, for the most part.

    Because it is meaningless to classify them by their relation to other living things in cooking, it only matters how they are used in dishes and how their flavors interact.

    Yeah I guess that makes sense. I'm used to considering nutritional values first and then figuring out what I can cook around what nutrition I want. If I were going for taste as my primary objective, that would probably be the way I'd go.

    People who cook as if it were an art give very little heed to nutritional value. "Nutrition" in the culinary world is kind of like Britney Spears in the musical world.
