CSA Challenge?

I will be back into posting soon, and on the top of my list is what to do with the mystery items that come in a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) share.

In the meantime, I came across a great recipe site from Tufts. They have several recipes on ethnic crops, including Bok Choy and Anise Hyssop, which have shown up in my shares over the last couple of weeks. Nothing on Kohlrabi, though :-(

But at least Kohlrabi is in The Visual Food Encyclopedia, which I bought about 12 years ago. It only provides one recipe for each food, but gives enough information about the food so that you can try to figure out how to use it. I am so glad I came across it when I did. I found it at Costco and probably didn't spend more than $15. Just looking it up now has it as high as $59 new!

I'm still around...

I just have been regrouping after a busy month. I also have some strategic planning to do. So although there is much to blog about, I just haven't been interested in sitting in front of my computer to compose something intelligible or at least coherent :-) Blogging can easily take up a lot of my time.
But it is also warmer weather and I'm in summer break mode. So I'm stopping to smell the roses (which just bloomed this week, by the way).
And when I remember to wear my pedometer, I'll also try to add my steps to the tracker.

Is it easy or hard for you to say “I love my body” and mean it?

That is what Marsha at A Weight Lifted asks.

And I ask: Is it wrong or even unspiritual to love our bodies?

If we look at loving our bodies as Marsha puts it, by "being moved to nurture our bodies", then I think there is no conflict there. I think most agree that taking good care of our homes, cars, children, intellect, finances, spirit and soul, community, etc, are godly things. Some call it good stewardship. Should it be any different with our bodies?

Make sure you read the rest of her post. And let me know what you think.
