Summer CSA Week 9

This week we got our first green pepper! We're definitely pepper fans over here so it was nice to get that little gem mixed in with all of our other goodies. Here's everything we got in this week's box. Items are listed below, starting at the top and moving left to right.

Summer CSA Week 9

  1. Savory cabbage
  2. Red potatoes
  3. Heirloom zucchini
  4. Assorted eggplant
  5. Green bell pepper
  6. Yellow tomatoes
  7. Sun Gold cherry tomatoes
  8. Red cherry tomatoes
  9. Green beans
  10. Red Tomatoes

As always, most of the tomatoes were eaten as snacks. What can I say? I love tomatoes!


About half of one of the long, skinny eggplant and some of the yellow tomatoes made their way onto this week's pizza. The green beans were served as our vegetable and it was all quite delicious.

This night was super simple: fried eggs with sauteed zucchini.

The remaining eggplant and some tomatoes were used in a new recipe. Basically, you slice the eggplant and tomato, make a quick pesto, and then layer it all with feta cheese. Then, the stacks get baked in the oven. It's delicious and now qualifies as one of my favorite ways to use eggplant!

I made falafel for the first time this summer (it was a weekly staple last year) and served it with a tomato, cucumber, and red onion salad. The only CSA item in this meal were the tomatoes, but it still counts. :D

Ok, I'm not gonna lie, this last one isn't the most visually stunning meal, but it definitely tasted good! I roasted the potatoes, made a cole slaw from the cabbage, and served them with pulled pork. Yum!

As excited as I was about that pepper, I still haven't used it. We might just eat it raw or toss it in with a meal this week.
