Because you're just dying to see the inside of my fridge.

Saturday is CSA day. That is, our morning routine revolves around picking up our produce and organic goods (eggs, oats and chicken, mainly) from the Abundant Harvest drop-off, then putting everything away and figuring out what I'm going to cook this week.

While UberDad took out the recycling and picked up our stuff, I cleaned and reorganized the fridge, which I'd ignored for too long. How I ended up with three tubs of vegan "buttery spread," I don't know. Nor do I know how long the hummus carton had been puffy, or when the cup of beaten eggs spilled over in the back of the fridge. Yuck.

But it looks so much better now, I just had to share. :)

Plus, we got cherries this week! And peaches and nectarines! So, my fridge is full of fruit that I really hope we can eat. Or else I'm going to have to make a cobbler or something. Yes, have to. Haven't you ever heard of a moral imperative to bake?! (Good thing I lost a couple pounds during that flu.) Apologies to my friends following Emily's Sugar Attack posts. Anyone have a recipe for sugar-free cobbler?

Turning the spinach into pesto won't be quite so guilt-ridden. But I'm not sure what to do with all the spring onions. I'm going to save the beets and potatoes to roast with a chicken next week - it's supposed to cool down to the 80s again soon. Phew!

Well, you really have made a come back.

I'm attempting one, anyhow. :) Three days out of a 30-day goal still leaves a way to go!

Oh, you signed up for CSA! Good for you, we just signed up for ours, but we don't get produce until the 3rd week in June. I can't wait.

p.s. I found your blog because you left a comment on my backyard farming blog. I will be checking back!
