CSA Week 7

We're cooking with gas now, the produce is coming in fast and furious:

  • Sweet Corn
  • Onions
  • Swiss Chard
  • Salad Mix
  • Green Peppers
  • Beets (with greens)
  • Yellow Summer Squash
  • Zucchini
  • Basil
  • Cilantro
  • Parsley

The farm's website had hinted at tomatoes, but there weren't any - with luck, we'll have tomatoes next week.

Dinner tonight - grilled steak, with corn on the cob and a green salad.

Dinner tomorrow - kebabs, with balls of ground lamb skewered amidst green peppers, quartered onions and yellow squash. And a quick garlicky sauté of the beet greens and some chard to go alongside the kebabs, using the two garlic scapes left from last week.

We'll probably grill the beets one day, because it's the only way W. will eat beets (despite his Polish heritage!). Slice them about 1/3" thick, slather with olive oil and grill slowly 'til soft. Sprinkle with kosher salt and serve.

And there's enough basil for at least one batch of pesto (though I still have pesto in the freezer from last summer).

And the zucchini? I don't know. Zucchini bread for the vultures in my office?
