Here we go again…

31 May

Hello dear readers!

After an inexcusably long hiatus, I am making another attempt. Time to recommit myself to Kitchen Dancing!  And what better time than now when inspiration is sprouting from the earth all around us.

As we have been anxiously awaiting the start date for our CSA, we have been biding our time eating local fiddleheads, asparagus, rhubarb, and just yesterday delicious, delicate, buttery lettuce that poor Josh had to listen to me gush about for at least 5 minutes as I was preparing our salad.

Sadly we have left Brookfield Farm in Amherst. We have loved Brookfield and when we first moved to the area we felt so welcomed there. As we were struggling to settle ourselves into the community socially and professionally, Brookfield was a place where Josh and I felt instantly at home. Since then, every move we have made to a new apartment or house  has taken us a little farther away from the farm. Last year, busy with a new house and a new baby, we felt like the drive was long and that we weren’t able to take full advantage of the farm. With mixed emotions, we are making the switch to Mountain View Farm this season, another organic CSA that is very close to where we are living now. Our first pick-up is in a couple days. Stay tuned for a post about my first impressions, plus more seasonal recipes, new RecipeHacking challenges, and more!
