My CSA Box: Menu Plan October 1-6

I have been thinking about new ways to title these posts to make them easier to find and use. How do you use these posts? Are they informational, aspirational, or something altogether different? Are you a subscriber to Fifth Crow or another CSA, wondering how to use your vegetable box this week? Would love to hear your stories!

In our Fifth Crow Farms box this week, we found Raspberries and Blackberries, Roma tomatoes, Carrots, Broccoli, Purple beans, Mesclun salad mix, and Tiger Eye dry beans.

Here is my menu plan for the week of October 1:

Sunday: Grilled steaks, steamed purple beans, steamed potatoes

Monday: Beef and bean chili in the slow cooker (I will cook the Tiger Eye dry beans in the pressure cooker the night before)

Tuesday: Roasted chicken and tomatoes, sautéed broccoli, rice

Wednesday: Orecchiette with Spicy Sausage and spinach (from Small Victories cookbook)

Thursday: Taco Thursday Roasted salmon, summer squash with pesto and bread crumbs

Friday: TGIF!
