Taking our Week 3 CSA on the Road to Wisconsin



I hope that everyone had a fabulous fourth of July weekend!  I spent the weekend up in Green Lake, Wisconsin with friends and family.  W had such a fabulous time boating, swimming, cooking, biking, fireworking, and spending time together catching up.  I unplugged for the weekend (no cell phone, no laptop…I didn’t even wear a watch), so I am back home and looking forward to sharing our weekend with you.


We left early Saturday morning.  I made some overnight oats with strawberries to go.  What a well rounded portable breakfast!!!  We packed up the car, including my bike, and hit the road.

My mom brought up this week’s vegetables and fruits from our CSA, which we used to prepare a delicious dinner on Saturday night.  We started with a salad using our fresh lettuce and a few other vegetables, such as the Kohlrabi.

We sliced up some of the other veggies for the grill.

We weren’t exactly sure what to do with the fennel and the beets.

The men were in charge of the meat.  They grilled up some marinated salmon and chicken.

There was ‘Emergency’ garlic bread while we waited.


And the BOY enjoyed a bag of chips.


Dinner was enjoyed by friends old and new around a huge table with some spectacular wine and easy conversation.  The food was fantastic and the fresh veggies were a hit!


With all of this wonderful food, there wasn’t much room for dessert.  But we had fresh cherries and raspberries from the CSA.

After dinner, we headed down to the dock for a gorgeous sunset and firework fun…followed by a late night boat ride and star gazing.


Happy Fourth of July!
