My last week of summer vacation is approaching – and it’s not even a relaxing week, either! Time to get back into the swing of things, I suppose…three days at school, my last days at the bakery, and keeping my house tidy for our next houseguest and a possible Labor Day weekend gathering.
This past week I did actually cook! 🙂 No photo documentation, but one of which is a recipe that I definitely need to share with you, and hope to blog about in the coming week. Meanwhile, we received our CSA this past week and it was full of wonderful goodies:
- Cherry tomatoes
- Bigger tomatoes
- Swiss Chard
- Red potatoes
- assorted peppers
With fall (slowly) approaching, I decided to blanch & freeze the swiss chard and squashes that were sitting in my fridge, and would go bad before the end of the week. I also whipped up a batch of salsa to can (thank you to my sister-in-law for the Mrs. Wages salsa mix she sent me). My favorite resource for learning how to do these things has been Pick Your Own – it’s very user-friendly and has lots of great details for how to preserve all the wonderful goodies you grow all summer long. You find out over the next several months if my canning was successful or not 😉
Time to go…the grandmas are back from church (I woke up too late…oops!) and it’s time to play host! Happy Sunday 🙂

It’s so great to be able to pull stuff from the freezer later!
I know! Especially with the busy fall I have coming up, the vegetables will be great for quick soups and casseroles! I didn’t realize how easy it was to do – I plan on doing more of it, too.
Nice haul! Thanks for linking up 🙂 Glad you were able to sleep in!
CSA? C…S…A….? Trying to rack my brain as to what this stands for?!
Community Supported Agriculture. In our case, we paid a small fee to a local farm for a share of the veggies & herbs that they produce. The money goes directly to the farmers to support their farm, and we get fresh produce every week.
Thanks! I looked it up and have been searching for one near us in Northern Ohio…. It sounds lovely!
What part of northern Ohio? I grew up near Chagrin Falls.
