CHIMICHURRI RECIPE

we spent saturday afternoon picnicking at the farm we get our csa from. it was the most perfect time to learn about where our food comes from, who handles it and most importantly, what's being done to sustain the local agriculture for future csa purchases. this week's chimichurri recipe, hosted by Lexi's Kitchen, went well with the fresh squash that probably was harvested that very morning, as well as the beets we picked last weekend from another local farm. we also dipped carrots, grilled turkey breast, and new-to-me kohlrabi into the verdant sauce that i can imagine would go so well with rice or plainly, eaten by the spoonful.

  3. How fun! I love hanging out at farms and seeing where my food is grown. Reconnecting with the land, it's good stuff. We smothered our kohlrabi in chimichurri, too. I had never grilled kohlrabi, but it turned out so well!

  4. I spent Friday at a farm. And fed baby sheep from a bottle! Best day ever. Though, whenever I visit my farming friends, I feel incredibly lazy. Cripes! They do so much more in a day than I do.

    Also, that chimichurri looks crazy good. Of course, I'm a sucker for anything cilantro & garlic infused...

    1. oh you win, there were no animals on this farm, save for a black lab who was going from picnic blanket to the next, quietly begging for scrapes...

  6. I have never made Chimichurri with balsamic - only lemon juice or red wine vinegar. I have to try this!

    1. the only reason why i used balsamic is because we ran out of red wine vinegar. it tasted great (tho i don't have anything to compare it to...)
