CSA Week 10

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
  • Celery
  • Carrots
  • Red potatoes
  • onions
  • cucumber
  • garlic
  • assorted peppers
  • lettuce

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 🙂
