I hear you on it being a lot of produce. We have a 6 year old and even with him eating some of the fruit we still ended up throwing away a couple of apples and pears. We decided on every other week as well. I'm guessing from your box you live somewhere south? We don't have a lot of fruit in our box, yet! I'm glad you like it! I really love the convenience of having them bring it to me.
Our box wasn't delivered yesterday, so I'm a little bummed. The CSA we buy from uses a delivery service here in the city and so far they have been less than stellar in their services. I sent an email but it was Friday so I don't expect to here back from them until Monday. I'm glad I didn't go shopping yesterday and plan on the produce for dinner.
I tried a recipe for the turnips and carrots that was super easy. The carrots were great the turnips were not such a big hit so I'm going to have to figure out something else the next time I get them. The carrots were yummy and sweet and the turnips were goodish when they were piping hot, although a little too mooshy, they turned bitter once they cooled down a bit. I don't know what to do with beets, neither my husband or I are a fan, it should be interesting. I've seen Emeril use micro greens a lot in his cooking, they look interesting!
