I do enjoy heading out for a night of fun on Fridays with my co-workers. I’ve worked here for 10 years, and I do consider some of the people here good friends. The only problem with fun on Friday is my alarm clock on Saturday. I work the morning shift on Saturdays, so if I go out and have a good time on Friday, Saturday is exceptionally painful.
That’s one thing I wouldn’t have noticed before I lost the weight. I never felt particularly good. I was often sick. Migraines were common place for me, as was really bad acid reflux. When you feel that unhealthy all of the time, hangovers just feel like any other day.
Now, however, I am not used to feeling horrible every day and I can really tell the difference the next morning.
Luckily, getting back on track should be pretty easy now that my new CSA delivery from Greenhearts Family Farm is here!
They delivered these to my workplace on Thursday, as I leave too early for them to stop by my apartment before work. Taking these pictures is actually how I misplaced my camera! Oops! Anyway, the haul this week is completely awesome. Pictured above we have a basket of strawberries (so sweet and juicy), celery, corn, zucchini, assorted stone fruit, Jonagold apples and delicata winter squash.
I also got a head of romaine lettuce.
Some loose baby spinach.
Red seedless grapes.
(They are sooooo sweet. Seriously, the sweetest grapes I have ever eaten.)
And tomatoes! Glorious tomatoes!
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. The tomatoes that I’ve received in these CSA boxes have been the BEST tomatoes I have ever experienced. It’s unbelievable. I got three in this week’s box, and I gave my co-worker one of them, as he was really interested. He had never heard of CSA, and was delighted with the thought. I gave him the information for Greenhearts, as well as information on some other local CSAs so that he could research an option that might work for him. He told me yesterday that he and his roommate had the tomato on a salad on Thursday night and they both couldn’t believe the flavor. I’m telling you, these tomatoes are life changing!
I also got a recipe to try as well. Not sure if this is what I’m going to do with my squash, but I like having options. I’ve never worked with them before.
I think it’ll be pretty easy to get my body back on track this weekend with all of the amazing produce in my house. I need to be all hydrated and happy by tomorrow morning so that I can do well at my race. I’ve been thinking about what I want to make for dinner tonight. So many options.
If you had received my CSA box, what would you make for dinner?
