CSA Love Affair, Movie Montage Edition, Take 2

We still love our veggies and “our” farmer.  And I’m still mostly obsessed with creating healthy meals that my kids will eat.  But, you know, I’ve also got all this book-coming-out, still-running-a-business stuff going on.  So, sometimes we slack.  And we don’t take photos of chain restaurant chicken tenders.  Because nobody needs to see that.

The good news is that this is CSA high season.  Awesome quantity and variety of really delicious produce that does not require a lot of salesmanship on my part.  (Though I really do need to get out of the habit of turning so much of it into baked goods.  But .... zucchini bread!)
