Summer CSA Week 6

I'm happy to report that the tomatoes are multiplying! We also got a couple new treats this week. Here's what we got in our box. Everything is listed starting at the top and moving left to right.

Summer CSA Week 5

  1. Swiss chard
  2. Basil
  3. Chinese cabbage
  4. Red tomatoes
  5. Sun Gold and German Lunchbox tomato mix
  6. Bicolor corn
  7. Heirloom zucchini
  8. Spring onions
  9. Yellow squash

Tomatoes don't last long around here. :D  Most of them ended up as snacks.

I used the Chinese cabbage and some of the spring onions to make fried rice.

Fried Rice

The Swiss chard and remaining spring onions were sauteed with some garlic and finished with apple cider vinegar. I served them with scrambled eggs. Fried would have been better texture wise, but scrambling was easier. On this night, easy won.

I used the basil to make pesto and combined that with some chickpeas, a couple of the tomatoes, and some cucumbers from our garden.

Some of the yellow squash found it's way into a frittata. The rest got cooked in butter with the zucchini and an onion. I boiled the corn and it all came together for a quick dinner. I have to admit, it wasn't my best meal planning as far as color goes, but it's what we had and it was delicious.
