Do you remember this picture from last weekend?
Well, most of that produce is now in my freezer waiting for to be added to meals this winter.
5 quart bags of brussel sprouts.
3 stuffed gallon bags of cauliflower. The kids ate quite a bit of cauliflower this week!
3 gallon bags of lettuce and a salad for supper this week.
The kids helped chop up the spinach while we listened to The Family Robinson on the laptop. I'm all for multi-tasking and my kids love any chore involving sharp knives.
The girls washing up bok choy.
Chopping up bok choy. We'll be having lots of yummy stir fry recipes this winter. Yes, that is chocolate syrup on the table. I think we had ice cream for dessert. :) We believe in balancing healthy food with sugar packed food!
Kolsen washing up the garlic.
1 gallon of kale, 2 gallon bags of spinach and 3 gallon bags of bok choy.
2 stuffed gallon bags of cabbage.
I'll also leave most of the potatoes (a 5 gallon bucket full from previous picks) in the garage until it gets too cold for them. I don't have much room left in my freezer for bulky food, so we'll have to eat some our other food before I add the hash browns and mashed potatoes.
I also made some apple butter with some organic apples I ordered.
Overall, I'm really glad that produce season is over and we'll have the chance to eat up some of the yummy foods we have preserved.
When I say my freezers are stuffed full of yummy food, I mean STUFFED!
The bottom basket is meat, but the rest is all veggies from our CSA picks!
Our chest freezer is almost full too!
This has a few chickens and ducks in it, but the rest is all veggies and fruit that we froze this year.
Whew! I'm so thankful that we have such a wonderful CSA where we can get quality produce to feed our family. Now it's freezer cooking season!
