WOW, three months of my CSA and I am just as happy with it now as I was when we started 12 weeks ago.
This week I brought home:
Rainbow Chard – we love greens but this week will be a busy one so this morning I braised them in chicken stock with garlic and put them in the freezer for use later
Green Peppers – I also have a bunch of green peppers from the Community Garden at work so I am thinking of making a batch of pepper jam with them and the jalapeno’s from this week
Jalapeno – pepper jam!
Carrots – last week I boiled the carrots, then candied them for the hubby, this week I will roast them. I might even make Roasted Carrot Orzo Salad, we will have to see what the week brings!
Onions – these will get used in various dishes all week
Potatoes – I have been wanting to make crash hot potatoes and I think this might be the week to try them. I will keep you posted on how they turn out.
Tomatoes – again, busy week so I kept one slicing tomato to make sandwiches, the cherry tomatoes will go into salads this week and the rest I roasted and put in the freezer
Zucchini, Squash, and Eggplant – I am going to roast all of these together for dinner one night this week, it makes a great side dish
Red Beets – I roasted these this morning, peeled them and freeze them for use next week when things are less hectic
Basil and Parsley – I like adding these to my salad greens, do any of you add herbs to your salads?
Aster Flowers – aren’t they beautiful!!
