Week 12: CSA Anything

Hi Everyone!

My! What a fantastic weekend, huh?! In case you missed it- I should let you know that the first annual Rathgebers' Garten CSA Member Potluck was a HUGE SUCCESS! To be clear: this wasn't your ordinary Bloomington potluck, no no... Imagine a land where the drinks were plentiful, the weather was beautiful, and the potluck contributions were a delight for the eyes and the tastebuds! Well, friends- this land is real; and it appeared at my house this past weekend. We had so many great contributions from our CSA fellowship! Breanne's Baba Ganoujj, Patrick's Super Spicy Jalapeno Poppers, Beautiful galette (with perfect crusts, mind you) made by Iresema and Mandi, Matt and Sarah were total ballers and came to a potluck where they weren't sure if they would know anyone-- and brought delicious Blackberry Melon Caprese Mini Skewers (which were very cute and refreshing). I was told that my Watermelon Shrub cocktail wasn't gross (yet, I am still not convinced), and Charlotte made an amazing fruit salad for dessert (which was also my breakfast Sunday morning). I am going to work on getting some recipes out to everyone so that we can relive, or imagine the fun for many years to come! But in the meantime, you should know...
