Summer CSA Week 7

This week got a fun surprise in our box; a sunflower! It's added a cheerful touch to our kitchen. :D On the food front, it's all pretty standard summer fare. Here's everything I got in my box. Items are listed below, starting at the top and moving left to right.

Summer CSA Week 7


  1. Sunflower
  2. Savory cabbage
  3. Spring onions
  4. Kale
  5. Yellow squash
  6. Zucchini
  7. Oriental eggplant
  8. Heirloom tomato mix
  9. Sun Gold tomatoes
  10. Red slicing tomatoes
  11. Basil

All of the cherry tomatoes and most of slicing tomatoes were eaten up as snacks.

The zucchini, eggplant, and some of the spring onions were cooked together in a dutch oven as a stew and served over quinoa.

Vegetable Stew Over Quinoa


The cabbage, kale, and remaining spring onions were cooked with some chickpeas and chicken stock in a dutch oven. We had some buttered garlic toast on the side. This one was delicious, but not super filling.

Cabbage, Kale, and Chickpea Skillet


I roasted the yellow squash with some potatoes and red onion. That, plus fried eggs, made for a simple and easy dinner.

Fried Eggs and Roasted Vegetables


For pizza night, I used sliced tomato and fresh bail as the topping. We had sauteed green beans on the side.

I made the basil into pesto (again) and pored it over a mixture of chickpeas, tomatoes, and cucumber.
