Cooking and the veggie box… with a little baking

There has been lots of cooking going on around here lately.  Mostly, it has been inspired by the Community-supported-agriculture (CSA) box that we get every Wednesday.  I consider it a personal challenge to use everything.  Ours (Avalon Acres) has a box with a meat share  – which is what we get.

Box 1:

strawberries, radishes, several types of lettuce, spinach, green onions,  pork chops, eggs

The challenges so far have been to use the radishes (we gave them away) and the eggs (I’ve been making lots of cheesecakes and giving them away).

Besides the cheesecakes – yes, that is plural and the count for this month is 4, we made “crash bandicoot‘ cupcakes for a newly seven year old boy.  Unfortunately, they turned out a bit more like cute little bears (the antithesis of what 7 year old boys like).

Miss Bug’s contribution looks amazingly like a katamari, which is what we gave him last year for his B-day…
