To be continued...

You may have noticed that I haven't been able to write much lately. My wedding is in 10 days (!) and between that and work picking up, I'm going to have to go on a blogging hiatus for a few weeks. Stay tuned for the conclusion of the CSA and some tasty wedding pictures!

Beans and Greens

The weather has been beautiful lately, and it's allowed for some late summer greens:

- arugula

- spicy salad mix

- mustard greens

- green beans

- green and yellow Roma beans

- squash

CSA Week 14

I didn't get to cook much this week between having a lot left over from the week before and going out of town for the long holiday weekend.

On Thursday I mixed spicy arugula into a leftover cous cous salad with feta and olives. I gave the rest of it away to Davy's mom, who made us a lovely dinner on Friday night. She added the arugula to spinach to make a fresh tasting salad that also included the crisp carrots. In addition, we had medium rare steak, mashed potatoes, corn on the cob, and our CSA mustard greens blanched and then sauteed in a little butter.

I held onto the yard long beans and Roma beans since they last longer than leafy vegetables. I may end up freezing some since we're getting so many right now.

Greens are back...

...and I may actually be able to start using my own basil, because there wasn't any of it this week. I turned down my parents' beautiful tomatoes because I thought there would still be some of those in the share, but I was wrong about that. I am very excited about what we did get though:

- mustard greens

- arugula

- summer squash

- yard long beans

- roma beans

- carrots
