CSA box #14

Contents: raspberries, green beans, dill, one zucchini, beets, sugar baby watermelon, leeks, and ruby green tomatoes and an unknown kind of heirloom tomatoes.

I don’t see too many main ingredient items for meals in this weeks box, but you can’t win ’em all. On the other hand, I can’t wait to eat those raspberries.



CSA box #13 update

The yellow doll watermelon really was yellow! I have never seen a yellow watermelon before! This variety, in my opinion, is much sweeter than a regular watermelon.

In other news, what we thought was a cantaloupe was actually a honeydew. And I have also kept my cooking plans and have made fresh marinara sauceAcorn Squash Spicy Vegan Chili and tons of pesto– this time without cheese per my Mom’s instructions. I promptly froze everything I made for another day. (Today is the day for one of those portions of chili!)

I feel like a cooking machine.

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?
