CSA Day 10/1/13


IMG_0193Another Tuesday, another box…

This week I got all kinds of goodies:


Loose-leaf Kale
Green Beans
1/2 lb. tomatoes


I have to say, I’m disappointed that the beets didn’t include the tops, but at least the cute little kales will keep me in greens for the week. Not that I need more greens, as I’m still eating on a pot of mixed greens that I cooked over the weekend.

Green-beans will go with some garlic, salt, and pepper in a foil bag on the grill. Beets will probably be saved for a few weeks, maybe until I have enough to pickle a jar. The cucumber, plus one I have in the fridge from last week, will make a pint of pickles with fresh dill. A sauté of zucchini and green beans with some scallion and garlic will be nice with some pasta. The lettuce will make a salad (might have to give in and chop up a beet to put on top), and maybe some lettuce soup too. The tomatoes will just get eaten.

A quick sauté of summer squash and whatever veg I have leftover in the fridge plus some pasta is a staple meal in my house. What are the dishes that you revisit often? Do you have a specific summer ‘stock meal’, one for winter, spring, and fall too?

    Bake a few of those beets in some olive oil, shallots and rosemary. They’re so good on their own or in salads!

      Ooh, I’ve never used rosemary with my beets. I’ll try that by week’s end. Thanks!
