Farm Share #1

Every other Monday from June through October, I pick up my CSA at a local organic farm. 

Most of the time, I will try the recipe that we are given.

This week the recipe was  Swiss Chard in Light Peanut Butter Sauce served over pasta.

I would say it was a hit although very different. My female co-workers were curious when I microwaved it for lunch and they commented how good it made the office smell :-) I work with eight females and five males.  I don't think Joe would enjoy this recipe. 

The recipe came from a blog that I don't think is around any longer  

The recipe consisted of ginger, garlic, swiss chard, peanut butter, cumin, cayenne pepper, balsamic vinegar and a splash of reduced sodium soy sauce.

Thanks for stopping by! By October you will tire of seeing my veggie posts.


  1. I won't get tired of seeing your bounty, not at all. Not sure if I'd like this recipe, but I'd be willing to try it, and most anything. Love that they provide recipes with each pickup.

    1. Can't wait to see your veggies, I think you said you will doing something similar. Farm to table within 24 hours is a wonderful thing.

  3. How nice that they provide a recipe for your produce, Debbie. Your dish looks colorful and I'll bet the peanut butter in it did make the office smell good. Happy summer, my friend! xo

  4. That's fun that you get a recipe with your produce! This does sound different and delicious, of course, I could eat peanut butter for every meal!

  5. I am with Joe on this one!! But your harvest looks tasty! Do you get to pick or do they have it all picked in portions for you? Sounds like fun!

    1. When we enter the barn, there is a chalkboard that states what we are to take. We bring our own bags, and fill them up. On the side of the barn, there is a table with "extras" that we can help ourselves too.

  6. Looks pretty enough to eat! I love making recipes with fresh produce for the farm stands that have popped up around town. Love your presentation........


I'm so happy you decided to stop by my blog. Please leave a comment as I enjoy hearing from each and every one of you!
