CSA Week #15

This week’s box is minimal prep. This is great for J because I won’t be home next until the 27th. While it is  a long stretch, once I am home I get to stay there for 6 months!!!! That is the longest in 2 years, so I am pretty excited 🙂 This will be a brief post and I am may be a little MIA the next few weeks as I prep for my neuro shelf exam. When I’m done, apples will be in full swing and I can’t wait! Fall is by far my favorite time of the year. Here’s what J will be up to this week.
