This week’s CSA box

crawford organics CSA vegetablesThis week’s CSA box contents:

a bunch of kale, spinach, a big head of lettuce, a bunch of cilantro, potatoes, carrots, sweet potatoes, and a bag of popcorn.

I have quite few potatoes to use up.  I saw a good recipe for potato cakes, although I know Philip will vote for mashed potatoes.  Maybe I can make both!

Good morning!
