We have recently been making a lot of updates to our apartment. We added a little butcher block island to our kitchen which really makes it easier to cook and keep my kitchen clean. I love it. Speaking of cleaning you should check out One Good Thing by Jillee her blog is lots of fun and she often makes her own cleaning supplies. I actually discovered it through Offbeat Home which, quite frankly you should already be reading.
I have also just signed up for my 2012 CSA. CSA stands for community supported agriculture. What that means is basically I pay for a share of a local farm and I get a share what they grow in a season. I pay for my share up front which covers overhead and I get know where my food is coming from and support my local farms. Yay!! We got half a share which means starting in June we will get a share every other week till late September or Early October. I will post our shares when we start to get them. I am also hoping to do some canning with some of what we get in our shares and what we get from our garden. Oh and there is a canning blog I heart too. It’s called Food in Jars and if you are interested in canning at all you should read it.
That is it for this week. Next week, I will have 2 vegetarian recipes for you a Jambalaya and my grandmother’s awesome Escarole and Beans. So tune in for that one.
