This week it finally happened, corn on the cob! Whoo hoo….
I wasn’t home on this weekend, I was in New England at a family wedding, the husband had a family committment on Saturday so he wasn’t able to go with me and it became his job to pick up the CSA. I don’t have a picture of all of the produce because I took the camera with me to the wedding.
The first thing I saw went I got back was a slew of tomatoes on my counter so I snapped a quick picture.
The cherry and slicing tomatoes came from the CSA, the Roma’s from my plant. I know what I am having for lunch today, a grilled cheese with tomato and tonight will be tomato salad.
As for the rest of my CSA….
Corn on the Cob – we got 6 ears, I steamed them last night for dinner
Green Beans – We had them for dinner last night with the corn and steak
Chard – I think I will saute this and freeze it since the hubby is away all week
Red Bliss Potatoes – I am planning on making potato salad for the upcoming weekend
Onions – these will go in the potato salad
Jalapeno’s – I am going to turn these into bread and butter pickled jalapeno’s (hot and sweet)
Green and Red Peppers – My plan for dinner on Friday is sausage and peppers on the grill with a side potato salad
Cabbage – I might make more sauerkraut, adding apples and caraway seeds
Eggplant – Roasted along with the summer squash I received and the zucchini my neighbor gave me
Summer Squash – Roasted with eggplant and zucchini
Cucumbers – honestly, I just love snacking on these, I might make a tomato cucumber salad tonight but truly, I just love snacking on them!
That’s all for this week, hopefully your gardens are yielding you lots of beautiful produce!
