Loving my CSA

I am loving my CSA. Every other week I get a box filled with fruit in season from Collin's Family Farm in Wenatchee. The fruit quality is A-1, as you can see I start eating it right away. Nothing better than a fresh ripe plum or peach. So tasty and so juicy..and so much better  than those hard golf balls they try to pass off as fruit at Safeway (and other stores). Tdis is my first year in a CSA and most definitely won't be my last!

So what's happening with the Dog Park?

Photo: B-Town Blog

New news... The Burien off-leash dog park recently became the receiver of some great monetary gifts... First up was Burien Toyota/Burien Chevrolet who ponied up $10,000 , than Purina Beneful dog food surprised us with $20,000. You may remember, Kellie Bassen, head of the B-Town Dog Owners Group, was a finalist in the 2013 Beneful Dream Dog Park contest, and Beneful did not forget the video that Kellie sent in and they wanted to help. Next up, we need to have the council "speed up" the process so ground can be broken, new fences put up. The B-Town DOG group is planning on going to the city council, meeting July 20th at 7PM to ask this. Hopefully if you are local or in Seattle you can come and Join us. More on Beneful and Burien Toyota/Chevrolet's amazing gifts HERE

1/2 c. green onions chopped
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese
Bacon bits or crisp bacon broken into pieces if desired
1/2 c. ranch dressing or mayonnaise

Mix together with salad dressing or mayonnaise. Garnish with a rosemary sprig if desired. Serve
