In the world of CSA life, there is a certain amount of pride in getting through your entire share in a week with no leftovers and no waste. Unfortunately, the bounty is so great that if anything unexpected knocks you off your game, it’s nearly impossible to recover. All this by way of saying that last week was not great for me, food-wise.
The share this week was lovely and plentiful. Definitely have to bring my A-game to get all the way through this one! The cucurbits are overflowing in my crisper.
Tomatoes (about a zillion)
Collards (smallish baby ones)
Zucchini Bread is a must-make
Another fresh tomato sauce
Cucumber salad w/mint
Some sort of gratin?
As I look at the list, it’s feeling less like a the sort of week where I make it all work together, and more like a week where I make a zillion different types of salads and serve three at every meal. Not terribly coherent as far as a menu goes, but with all that fresh food, it’s hard to go too far wrong!
Also, Amazon keeps suggesting that I link you all to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo I have no idea if this is even a good book, but it has shown up in my “suggestions” queue so many times, that I’m starting to think that Amazon knows something about you all that I don’t. Let me know if you buy the book.
