CSA box (lucky) 13

Lucky #13. This week we received: a giant cantaloupe, yellow doll watermelon, corn, royal burundy beans and green beans, basil, candy onions, green cabbage, sungold cherry tomatoes, summer squash, orange valencia and heirloom tomatoes, mix of red/bell peppers, jalapenos, and garlic.

Maeby did not come with the box but she did have a good time trying to test the contents (see below).If only she’d put away that dishwasher full of clean dishes.

I’m really hoping that watermelon is yellow inside! Last week’s watermelon was delicious and we are taking it to a pizza party tonight.

I picked up this box about an hour ago and I am already thinking of all the things I’m planning to make with this weeks contents:

Basil: Pesto to freeze

Onions: Brent wants to make oven onion rings

Green Cabbage: EatLiveRun’s Spicy Asian Slaw

Corn: Acorn Squash Spicy Vegan Chili

Tomatoes: Fresh Marinara Sauce, maybe some pico de gallo

Any suggestions?

  1. News Flash: I have been making Pesto with everything EXCEPT the cheese. That way when I heat it up, it doesn’t get all GROSS. You can simply grate the Parmesan over your dish. I think it is the new, better way.
    WOW, these CSA boxes really rule! I need to look into this for Northern VA.
