thinking back to the season before, looking back through the cracks in the door

This was awhile ago. I've forgotten much of what I did.

PS: fuck 2016.

CSA Winter Share 1:

1 package frozen tomato paste
1 bunch broccoli
1 bunch kale
1 butternut squash
2 lbs. potatoes
2 lbs. sweet potatoes
2 lbs. beets
2 lbs. carrots
2 lbs. onions

Uhhhhhhhh. The potatoes mostly got sliced thin and served with eggs for breakfast and lunch. The butternut squash sat around for a long time. Don't remember what else happened with what. It was a long time ago.

Actually, hm, I definitely made some kielbasa soup around this time, probably with this tomato paste. But I have no record of obtaining cabbage, and that definitely had cabbage in it (along with potato, onion, carrot, garlic, the usual). Maybe we got one instead of the kale. I'll choose to believe that for ease of write-up.

CSA Winter Share 2:
1 package frozen tomato paste
1 package frozen broccoli
2 heads garlic
2 leeks
1 butternut squash
2 lbs. potatoes
2 lbs. carrots
.5 lbs braising mix
1 bunch turnips

The frozen stuff is still in our freezer (and will be very useful in February!) The butternut squash... sat around like last time. After a long history of getting the biggest butternuts I could handle, this time we realized we couldn't handle very much and I got a tiny one.

The braising mix ended up in pasta with canned plum tomatoes. I probably made omelets with the leeks. This was not a very exciting two weeks, cookery-wise: I was mostly occupied with being sick and/or being in NJ.

CSA Winter Share 3:

1 package frozen kale
1 package frozen tomato paste
1 package frozen green beans
2 lbs. 4 lbs. potatoes
2 lbs. carrots
2 lbs. beets
1 butternut squash
2 heads garlic

Did my winter shift and took the opportunity to buy some extra potatoes, since they keep and are always good for making hash browns. Also finally got around to using the two older butternuts, making a soup that also included carrots, sweet potatoes and onions not from the farmshare, garlic, chicken stock, the turnips from last time, herbs and spices. That was certainly the biggest thing I did. (Well, I also made the Xmas ham when I was in NJ and brought some as leftovers to be eaten with potatoes and green beans, but biggest use of farmshare veggies.)
