Done and done. We had a great CSA experience, and we will definitely do it again, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't ready for a break. I'm only a little ashamed that we slipped back into convenience-food mode, but with busy schedules at the end of the year, we consider it a victory to eat together most nights. After some rest and rejuvenation, I'm confident we'll get right back into experimenting in the kitchen. It is crock pot season after all...
