Bountiful Harvest

Posted By on Mon, Oct 29, 2007 at 4:07 PM

Blog reader Sernin has a couple of photos that I find interesting.  Her description:

"I got my first Community Supported Agriculture basket today. I showed up too late for eggs, and I swapped my loaf of 8-grain bread for dietary reasons."

The goods:

2 bell peppers
1 gallon bag of field greens
1 quart bag of basil
1 tub of pesto
1 blob of fresh whole wheat pasta
1 pound beefalo
1 gallon bag of frozen (purple hull?) peas
8 sweet potatoes (half of them in swap for the bread)
1 big yellow (spaghetti?) squash
2 little decorative gourds
1 box rice
1/2 quart bag of popcorn
1 bag cornmeal (in swap for them running out of eggs)
1 unit colby cheese

When asked for details of the program, Sernin responds:
"Their website is here.  And lots of CSA information here.
Their email is csalittlerock@yahoo.com and phone is 501.374.1660

To sign up for the program, just visit them at the River Market to fill out the enrollment form.  They have a choice of vegetarian baskets or whole market baskets.  Payment is required in advance.  I signed up for a three month stretch of whole market baskets for $180, and just got my first basket last Friday morning."

Anybody else in the CSA program?  Thoughts or comments?

    On my way back to my hometown for the holiday, I stopped off in Memphis for lunch.Neely's BBQ, opened by the nephews of the famous Jim Neely, the owner of Interstate BBQ.I gots the pulled pork platter.  With Fries and Beans.  Sorry, I should have gotten the slaw or potato salad, but I was craving some fries.  And boy were they good.  The sauce was good, but the pork itself was the real standout- tender and smoky.  The beans were also the best I've had in a while.  Nice and tangy.Mrs. Belly gots the small BBQ Sammich.And who can resist the BBQ spaghetti?   This is good stuff.  Pasta with BBQ sauce and pork- how could you miss?Stop off at Neely's next time you're in Memphis.  You'll be glad ya did.  Got a good spot in Memphis/West Memphis to tell us about?

  • Ol' Faithful

    One of the very few places in Little Rock that I have found to be reliable restaurant every time out is Cafe' Prego.  The prices are reasonable, the service is attentive, the wine list is good, and the food is excellent.Shrimp Crepes with mixed veggies is an excellent light dinner choice-Myself- I can't seem to steer clear of the eggplant parmesan.   A side of pasta clinches the deal- all for about 10 bucks.  This dish is easy to botch- I've seen it done too many times, but Prego nails it every time.What's your Ol' Faithful?

  • Arkansas Repertory Theatre to suspend operations immediately

    “The inability to reach its projected goals for charitable giving and ticket sales, and the change in the theatre landscape in Little Rock have created a perfect financial storm for The Rep,” Board Chair Brian Bush said. “The Rep’s ticket sales have been on a downhill slope for several years. Our community is on the verge of losing an amazing arts organization and tremendous asset to our city. Closing The Rep will have a devastating impact on the redevelopment of Main Street and the creative corridor.”
