I love to cook. I love my CSA (community supported agriculture).
As The Purple Cook I’ll share with you how our family uses the food we got from our CSA and other local sources. The blog will share recipes, storage tips, and stories of what happens to that food from pick up to kitchen clean up.
A CSA can be fun, adventurous, and surprising.

Here are my flowers from last week’s TH market. They seem to have survived two nights with the temperature going below freezing.
Here is the purple basil I got at Sunday's market. It is accompanied by thyme (teeny tiny little thing) and sage. The angel was given to us by our flower girls when we got married. Her necklace is from the balloon our friends used to welcome us home from the hospital with our oldest. The mint was in the box with the chives, but it was taking over so I moved it into the ground. The chives were the first herbs from our home garden I put into a meal this season.
Last night we had broiled tuna with a lemon chive sauce and the Shaved Asparagus and Spaghetti.
