Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2013/nov/24/265062/ OK, I can’t believe I’m going to admit this, but — deep breath — here it goes: I am not a pumpkin pie person. There, I said it. Yes, I will eat pumpkin in pretty much any form. Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin bread, pumpkin cupcakes, pumpkin ...

Seasonal skill: How to seed a pomegranate

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2013/nov/17/264766/ This week I was sick. A rare occurrence, honestly. I eat more than my fair share of vegetables, get my sleep, workout and wash my hands constantly. But I have a kid and he has little kid germs and every once in awhile, if whatever he has is especially ...

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2013/nov/11/264451/ To start things off, let me just say that 2013 was a pretty darn good year to be a member of one of the many CSAs in the Lawrence area.

Cooking away the CSA, week 30: Leeks and onions, oh my

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2013/nov/04/264134/ This past week was officially the last week of our CSA season. Though, because you’ll have to pry my fresh, local vegetables out of my cold, dead hands, it’s actually not the last week for us. [Rolling Prairie][1] has a “late” bag and we’re signed up. Meaning, we’ll be ...

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2013/oct/28/263772/ Admittedly, there are no local ingredients in the recipe I’m sharing today.

Cooking away the CSA, week 28: Soup and salad

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2013/oct/21/263398/ Last week, I hit the major personal parenting goal of getting the kiddo to eat salad. It was marvelous. While I basked in the glow of that achievement for the rest of the following week, I also tried to recreate it. And I did. Multiple dinner times in a ...

Cooking away the CSA, week 27: Salads for the whole family (including the kiddo)

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2013/oct/14/263115/ My kid really does eat amazingly well for a pre-K child. I’ve [discussed][1] many times that he does a pretty good job, even if he’s just like any other kid in that he’d take cookies over carrots any time. That said, if there’s one thing I’ve barely ever gotten ...

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2013/oct/07/262801/ We’ve come to the time of year where winter squashes and tubers are sharing table space with tomatoes and cucumbers at local CSAs and the [Lawrence Farmers' Market][1]. For instance, we got eggplant, tomatoes, cucumbers, sweet potatoes, tat soi, lettuce mix and peppers last week from [Rolling Prairie][2]. It ...

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2013/sep/30/262308/ We’re almost to the end of the CSA season. Not totally there yet, but we probably have a month to go if we’re super lucky. So sad. But we’re enjoying it while we can. And we totally enjoyed this week’s [Rolling Prairie CSA][1] cooking experiment, which was basically an ...

Cooking away the CSA, week 24: Becoming OK with okra

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2013/sep/23/261996/ Er, so this column is called “Eat Your Vegetables,” but, I have a confession: There are a few vegetables that I’d rather not eat. Oh, the scandal. But I do try. And that’s part of the beauty of joining a CSA like [Rolling Prairie][1]: You have to try because ...
