A friend of mine and I split a 12 week share of CSA (community supported agriculture) from a local farm and besides the beets and too many leeks to use, we've been enjoying it quite a bit.
Yesterday I posted this picture on Instagram and twitter because I was not sure what this was. I assumed it was in the broccoli family but had never seen it before so...
Turns out the farm newsletter calls it ramonesco cauliflower but many people told me it was broccoflower. Either way, it's pretty tasty.
Tonight I made squash with fresh basil and leeks and baked it with olive oil and mozzarella and parmesean cheese. SO. GOOD. And and a super happy smile comes to my face just knowing that all the the produce came from a local farm.
The farm also gives us a lovely bouquet every week and these zinnias were just begging to be photographed.
Do you buy local produce at all? If not, you should try. I promise it tastes better... ;)
