CSA Week 14

Alright…I gotta admit it. Blogging got put on the back burner this week. Along with cooking anything remotely interesting (either that, or it was simply a repeat recipe). And then, I went camping with the girls for a night and ate potato chips and beer for dinner (still smacking my forehead, should’ve had a V8 style)

So forgive the lacklusterness of my blog, please? 🙂

Week 14 in the CSA has brought around a new set of fun things to work with:photo (22)

  • lots of sweet, red peppers
  • purple & green peppers
  • tomatillos
  • plums
  • thyme
  • pie pumpkin!
  • eggplant
  • white onion
  • cherry tomatoes
  • big tomatoes

I was especially excited about the tomatillos! I remember I made something with them last summer – what it was, I can’t remember – but this weekend I did cook up a batch of tomatillo salsa. It will be perfect with the fajitas that I’m making for dinner tonight. I’m hoping that the farm will still have them in the coming week’s share; if this salsa is as good as I think it is, I’m going to want to make a larger batch! 🙂

We also had some ‘Stanley’ plums. The farm doesn’t put fruit in our shares very often so this was a nice surprise. I’m not the biggest fan of them, but I did try them, which is a pretty big deal for me since I’m pretty picky when it comes to fruit.

Tonight, when I’m not doing something related to work, I am hoping to figure out what to do with a ginormous zucchini that I received from one of my students (it’s about as big as one we received as a ‘gift’ last year. I’m thinking a batch of zucchini bread may be in order…hmm..any of you have any suggestions?
