CSA Share for 2012 Week Thirteen

Our farm’s animals seem to be giving our farmers a good workout lately with their escape antics!  I’m glad our farmers go to the trouble to have them, though; when my kids were younger, they loved seeing all the farm animals up close and personal.

In our share this week:

  • basil
  • kale
  • onions
  • green beans
  • potatoes
  • green peppers

For those of you with young kids who are looking for simple “what to do” ideas (that don’t involve video games, that is!), check out this site that has printable farm animal activities, including lots of mazes as well as word searches, dot-to-dots, and word scrambles.  I also found these farm animal games, many of which use standard playing card decks.

After the kids work up an appetite playing all those games, try out this Boboli Pizza Crust clone recipe.  We tried it this weekend and it turned out great.  It’s the perfect crust to top with all our farm veggies (basil, onions, green peppers), and of course sliced fresh mozzarella.  We used no sauce at all; a fantastic oil and garlic concoction that my husband made was all the base it needed.  Try mixing in some shredded parmesan cheese right into the dough and see how that turns out.
