Well, we’re officially into fall now and the veggies just keep on coming! It’s Saturday night (as I write this) and I have 5 pints of diced tomatoes in the water bath canner. My garden is still pretty happy and we haven’t had a major frost yet, so I’ll enjoy the beautiful fall harvest as much as I can 🙂
Meanwhile in CSA land, we had another neat haul to bring home:
- green & purple peppers
- banana peppers
- jalapeno peppers
- dinosaur kale
- lacinato kale
- more tomatoes!!!
- fresh sage
- purple kohlrabi
We also had a neat addition to this week’s CSA – fruit! We received a few Michigan peaches:
Lucky for Mike, I am not a peach fan – so he had these all to himself! (he had already eaten one by the time I had taken a picture).
I’ll be chopping & freezing the bell peppers tomorrow. The kale will also be making a great salad with some locally made peanut sauce (on my list to buy tomorrow). I’m starting to get really good at prepping lunches again (thank goodness)! This time of year is a very busy one for me because of marching season. The next Friday night I’ll have ‘off will be November 1st. Needless to say, I’ve got to start being proactive again with dinners & leftovers, and dust off the ol’ crockpot again.
Question for Ya: What’s your favorite crockpot meal? I need some new ideas. Bonus points for if it is meatless!
