CSA pick up seemed pretty sparse this week...
a pint of cherry tomatoes, 1 squash, 2 small cucumbers, 4 slicing tomatoes, a bag of shallots, 2 garlic cloves and a half dozen brown eggs.
Here's the CSA pick of the week! (Except ... I don't know what kind of squash it is or how to cook it...)
Update: It's a scallop squash, a.k.a. patty pan squash.
So my corn is completely dead after I pulled it all up. I peeled back part of a really sad looking corn husk and indeed, it was drying up. Boo! The drought is only going to get worse ... and I wonder what it will do to the CSA farms?
But for now, we're enjoying a bountiful harvest of multicolored tomatoes and I put them all together. Pretty huh?
(Here's to hoping little fingers stay out of them ...)
And, here's a few pictures of recipes I made last week with CSA ingredients. We are really enjoying all of the fresh goodness. (Disclaimer: I do not claim to be a food photographer, so if my photos gross you out, my apologies.)
First up, Margherita Pizza with whole wheat crust, garlic/olive oil herb sauce, fresh mozzarella and tomatoes.
Feta, cucumber and tomato salad with salt, pepper, balsamic and oil dressing.
Purple potatoes = lavender mashed potatoes. Kind weird, but tasted the same.
And, finally, a European specialty ... tomato slice topped with a piece of fresh mozzarella and a basil leaf then drizzled with olive oil. YUM!
Until next time, friends!
