CSA Meals - Week 4

Another Tuesday, another chance to assess the manifestation of the week's produce. The vegetables were incorporated into a few larger dishes to ensure the presence of leftovers while I was out of town.

Taking a tip from the farm, we managed to put together a Zucchini Crusted Pizza. Unfortunately Davy and I both read and forgot the step for drying out the zucchini, and our pizza was more like a lasagna with zucchini noodles. It was still very tasty, with yellow squash and zucchini from the share and basil from the front porch. I hope to try it again soon and will be much more careful about following directions.

The cute little new potatoes, garlic and kale wen
t into Kale and Olive Oil Mashed Potatoes. We ate them with hot Italian sausage from the Belmont Butchery, and what seemed more like a cold weather meal hit the spot on Wednesday night after kickball.

Monday night I was lucky enough to be served lamb chops (gu
ess where they were from), rice, cucumber and tomato salad, and turnips. The honey, cinnamon and nutmeg on the turnips made them taste like dessert. Neither of us are sure turnips are our new favorite vegetable, but it is fun experimenting with them. I was particularly excited about the cucumber and tomato salad with balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and fresh basil, because it's one of my favorite summer dishes.

All of last week's share is gone except for th
e spring onions, which are holding up well, and today
get eggs with our produce!
