WIP Friday

WIP Friday - Dinner

It’s finally gotten cold around here so we’re having one of the greatest cold weather comfort foods for dinner — beef stew. These are just the veggies — obviously — and not even all of them. Everything is cooking now and it sure smells good in here. We’ll be breaking up some crusty bread and having quite a feast.

Welcome and A Year in Review

I’ve been seeing a bit of a traffic surge here at Mama Urchin in the last few days due, in large part, to my recent whiplash win over at Whip Up. Thanks so much Kath for choosing my little pea as one of the winners. And thanks also go to Blair for such a fun idea that I only adapted. Wow, this is starting to sound like the academy awards, and I’d like to thank Jill at my LYS for helping me select the yarn…. Seriously though, thank you.

And, I figured since there might be some new folks hanging around I would share a mosaic of some of the notable creations of 2006. I’ve been meaning to do one of these anyway and, with all the new traffic, now seemed like the perfect time. The links will take you to the flickr photos — for more information about each project you’ll just have to poke around.

CSA Tuesday – 24

CSA Week 24

Well, this is it, the end of the season. Just 24 weeks ago we started and we’ve eaten very well in between. We have enough eggs and sweet potatoes to last us a little while but then it will be back to buying all our produce at a store. The farm is being put to bed for the winter and I hope our farmers will get some much needed rest.

CSA Bag Contents: Mixed Greens, Arugula, Dill, Mini Pumpkin, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Sweet Potatoes, Potatoes, 1 doz. eggs

CSA Tuesday – 23

CSA Week 23

So only one more week of the CSA and then I’ll have to start buying eggs at the grocery again. Sorry for the sporadic posting, things have been a little crazy here, more on that later. Anyway, we got lots of autumn goodness today and tomorrow we’ll be having soup for dinner using lots of it.

CSA Bag Contents: Celeriac, Mixed Greens, Cilantro, Carrots, Potatoes, Broccoli, 1 doz. eggs

CSA Tuesday – 22

CSA Week 22

So the CSA is starting to wind down, just two more weeks after today. Lots of greens this week. We’ll probably use the napa cabbage to make an asian slaw. I’m not sure all the mustard greens and asian greens will be used. If I have time I’ll try to chop them and freeze them. But radishes, yum, we’ll definitely be eating them.

CSA Bag Contents: Asian Greens, Napa Cabbage, Mustard Greens, Sweet Potatoes, Radishes, Pie Pumpkin, Sage, 1 doz. eggs

CSA Tuesday – 21

CSA Week 21

Um, yeah, it’s Monday and I’m just getting to my CSA Tuesday post from last week. My goodness, that was a very unintentional blogging break and I apologize. Stefan was away and that always makes everything a little more difficult. Anyway, here’s what we got last week.

CSA Bag Contents: Butternut Squash, Potatoes, Celeriac, Asian Greens, Carrots, 1 doz. eggs

CSA Tuesday – 20

CSA Week 20

Wow, 20 weeks, that’s incredible. Well, we got our first frost over the weekend and apparently some of the greens suffered for it. We also got confirmation that these are the very last tomatoes of the year. I really need to start using potatoes, more soup maybe?

CSA Bag Contents: Tomatoes, Rosemary, Potatoes, Eggplant, Sweet Potatoes, Peppers, Salad Greens, Asian Pears, 1 doz. eggs
