Let’s start this week out right: another photo parade of our weekend.
After lunch I ran off to the Red Fire Farm Deep Winter CSA distribution in Somerville to fill in for Kristi while she is away. I had a lot of fun meeting up with some familiar CSA faces along with lots of really great new CSA members. It was fun to run the distribution at Metro Pedal Power with Mariela. The people at MPP were great and helped us clean up, and were a really helpful, nice bunch of people who are doing really great things for their community and environment.
Running the distribution made me antsy to get to June when I can begin running the Brighton site’s main season distribution. I think I can officially say that I have gotten enough of a break that I am rearing to go for the next CSA season.
We got a lot of amazing items from the CSA distribution:
After distribution, Magda, our visiting friend from Savannah, GA made us a local meal! I got to make pasta and Theresa got to be the photographer for the event.
Pasta Making Montage:
Saturday morning, Magda had to work, and Theresa wasn’t feeling that well, so I decided to make the last of our oranges into marmalade.
We went out to eat at our favorite sushi place for dinner on Saturday, Genki Ya in Coolidge Corner. It is by no means local cuisine, but most of its food is organic or sustainably produced, and it has a lot of great healthy options like multigrain sushi rice, which I adore (it’s a purple hue and has beans in it too!). We did not bring our camera, but Magda stepped up to being a guest photographer with her iphone and took pictures of our meal.
As always, it was all delicious. Very happy to enjoy good food with good company. We had a lovely Saturday evening with Magda, and even happened to catch and say hi to two great CSA members whom we have gotten to know over the past two years. A very nice Saturday night.
I woke up Sunday morning, and it looked like this:
I had to work early on Sunday, and so, I had a quick breakfast of uncooked rolled oats, sofia’s yogurt, and raspberry jam.
I had to put together a quick lunch for myself before dashing out of the house. I made myself another set of walnut-oat-honey-cocoa balls, and put some baked kabocha squash into a container with some cinnamon and maple sugar.
After a long day of work with a nice break of taking Magda to the airport, I arrived home Sunday night to Theresa making a delicious simple dinner.
And that (Phew!) was our weekend in photos. I hope everyone else had a lovely weekend!
