After over 2 months of vacation, Harper and I are finally back to reality. It feels nice to unpack our bags, hang up our clothes and put our toiletries back in the medicine cabinet. But lots has happened since we first left for Ireland back in June. While we were gone, Freddie got another new job. Which means yet another move for us (which, if you’re still keeping track is 12 moves in 8 years…with 3 of those moves happening in the last 8 months). As much as we had hoped they would, things just didn’t work out for us in San Louis Obispo. But as they say, when one door closes, another one opens, and Freddie’s new opportunity is even better than his last. So while Harper and I were visiting friends and family all over the globe, Freddie was busy packing up our new home up north and moving us south to good ol’ Orange County.
Luckily, I am no stranger to this area. I have aunts, uncles and cousins who live in Orange County and so I guess you can say I have grown up coming to visit here. It’s just so much bigger than what we have become accustomed to after living in Santa Barbara for the past 3 years. But there is nothing better than being close to family, so we are very grateful for that.
And of course, I couldn’t approve of the move until I found a CSA. And my new one sounds awesome! I just didn’t submit my subscription in time to get a box this week, so next Tuesday I will be picking up a box and can’t wait to share it with you all.
But in the meantime, let’s check out the links from last week. I am loving the rooty, tooty, fresh and fruity flavors that are coming our way…Pizza with Raspberries, Pasta with Peaches, and Quinoa with Cranberries (and pineapple mint!). Get’s me more excited than it should. But, as we all know, I have a weakness for fruit. Which is why I have decided to share my favorite summer fruit recipes this week.
Your turn: What are some of your favorite ways to incorporate your CSA fruits into simple and delicious meals? Looking forward to drooling over your ideas.
