CSA Week #8


Oh life. When are you going to slow down to let me catch up?

So we got this week’s CSA box and it’s not terribly exciting. Very similar to last week. But hey, fresh, local, organic veggies are just fine with me!

So the box:

  • 1 dozen eggs
  • Kohlrabi
  • Zucchini
  • Beets
  • Fingerling potatoes
  • Pickling cucumbers
  • Tomatoes
  • Jalapenos
  • Some type of hot pepper
  • Green bell peppers
  • Dill
  • Basil
  • Eggplant
  • Cauliflower
  • Garlic

Phew! Lots to go through this week. So here’s the plan:

Friday: Zucchini lasagna (it’s cooked in the microwave, but when it’s really hot like it has been, we put it in a metal casserole pan and toss it on the grill!)

Saturday: Turkey burgers with grilled potato & onion packets

Sunday: Stirfry with kohlrabi, bell peppers, onion, cauliflower, hot pepper

Monday: 5-layer Greek dip & Baba Ghanoush with pita

Tuesday: Black bean and goat cheese tacos with shredded pork and guacamole

Wednesday: Left-overs/clean out the fridge

I’ll be out of town this weekend, so I didn’t plan anything horribly exciting this week as far as food goes. I do think I’ll try to make this mango coconut chia pudding, though at some point. Yum.
