I especially love when I have a day off on the day that our CSA is available for pick-up. I have time to peruse through the box, search and sift through countless recipes, make my shopping list, and really think about the meals/recipes I’ll be making over the next week. Some people think it’s a chore, but I think it’s fun!
Without further ado, here’s this week’s farm share:
- jalapeno peppers
- fresh garlic & onion
- zucchini (3 different kinds)
- beets (I’m told they are the red & white striped ones)
Can you tell we’re getting into salsa season? 😉
My work schedule for the next week is such that I have several evenings free to really have some fun the kitchen. Look for a few recipes to come out here in the next week!
Question of the Day: The Beets! (cue in ‘Killer Tofu’…anyone?! :)) What is your favorite way to eat your beets?

Oh Sis…bringing Doug to the table, literally with those beets 😛
I can’t say that I’ve had beets, not sure if I ever will.
Keep up the writing!
Ah! Bro! Hello!!! Thanks for reading 🙂
Favorite way is to grate them and then mix with a bit of flour, rosemary, black pepper and some feta. Then I mash them in cakes and saute. They’re terrific.
my new favorite beet recipe is this lovely roasted beet salad…http://inherchucks.com/2012/05/29/roasted-beets-with-gorgonzola-and-walnuts/. But you could always go the sweet route with this cake…http://inherchucks.com/2011/12/10/beet-cake-with-cream-cheese-frosting/, or these muffins…http://inherchucks.com/2012/04/13/chocolate-beet-muffins/.
Come and link up to this week’s link party when you get a chance….http://inherchucks.com/2012/07/11/whats-in-the-box-34/.
Looking forward to seeing you there 🙂

I like to dry roast beets, then make a salad using them. Spread salt in a loaf pan or casserole pan. Add beets, without the leafy greens. Roast at 350° for about 25-30 minutes. They shrivel up and once cooled, the skins come off easily. I put them in the fridge and take them out to slice over salads. Usually with goat cheese and some sort of nuts, along with lettuce or spinach.
Sounds great. Thanks for the tip, and thanks for reading!
