Yep, I totally blew the grocery budget this week so David and I could grill some gorgeous, filet mignon steaks.  Oh well!  :)  As you can see below from my purchases, I didn't need much other than our weekly staples.  Having the CSA has been so wonderful thus far and I still have yet to waste/throw away anything from my weekly deliveries.  David enjoyed the cauliflower so much from last week, I decided to experiment further with a roasted cauliflower recipe (if it's wonderful, I'll add it to my blog!). 

You can see how I plan to use up what was in our CSA box this week by checking Thursdays' post HERE.
