Hi friends and happy summer! We are finally on summer vacation after a very long school year. Our last day was Friday, June 26th! Brendan and I celebrated after his last baseball game on Saturday with our first trip to Dairy Joy. Brendan was glad to get a chocolate soft serve with chocolate sprinkles and whipped cream. I, of course, still on my Whole60, had cherries. 😉
Another CSA season from Wilson Farm is upon us, and per usual, we are super excited for our weekly pick-ups. Who can blame us? Fresh veggies + supporting our local farm every week = total awesome-ness. We are also participating in the fish share again this year and get freshly caught fish every other week. So far this month, we have had lots of lettuce, beets, and radishes, and we can’t forget the amazing local strawberries too. Every meal we include some form of beautiful greens, such as spinach, swiss chard, escarole and kale, sometimes sautéed in a little coconut oil, sometimes raw, both ways equally delicious.
