CSA Week 11

No photo this week because we got an overflowing box and two bags full of produce and I couldn't fit all of it on our dining table.  This is what happens when your volunteer shift is 1) in August, when a lot of people are on vacation and don't pick up their shares and 2) your shift is at the end of the day, so you get sent home with probably twice your share.  Here's what we got:

Vegetables: 4 pounds heirloom tomatoes (these were part of a supplemental share but there were so many left over that we were given some), 2 pounds plum tomatoes, 1/2 pound each yellow wax beans and green string beans, 1 bunch leeks, 1 head butter lettuce, 1 head red lettuce, 2 pounds green peppers, 2 pounds cucumbers, 2 bunches summer savory
Fruit: 8 pounds peaches

My mom also gave me a big eggplant and a few green tomatoes from her garden - not the best week for additional produce, but I wasn't going to compalin

Here's what I'm making
  • Heirloom tomato salad with Sicilian olive oil, homegrown basil, Maldon salt, and black pepper
  • Plum tomato sauce
  • Yellow tomato sauce
  • South Indian style yellow and green beans (actually, I cut up the beans and froze them
  • Dill pickles
  • Falafel salad
  • Savory tart with chickpeas and pesto, roasted zucchini, heirloom tomatoes, and summer savory
  • Zucchini walnut bread
  • Parmesan zucchini bread
  • Snacks - raw peppers (also, Oscar loves green peppers...they are his treat for when he's being super good, but he's always good...)
  • Peach-almond pie!!!  (can you tell I'm excited about this one - we've never gotten enough peaches in our share to make a pie and now that we have a ton I can easily make a pie with lots of peaches left over for eating out of hand)
