Kitchen Kabaret! Anyone? Anyone?

April showers bring May flowers.
What do May flowers bring?

Yes, we have lots more zucchini this week. I’m not yet totally tired of it, so I think that’s a good sign.
Here’s the bounty from week 5:

2007 CSA Week 5 - Veg

Red Norland Potatoes- 1 pound
Scallions-1 bunch
Summer Squash-15
Beets-1 bunch with greens
Bright Lights Swiss Chard-1 bunch
Genovese Basil-1 bunch
Sugar Snow Peas-1 pint basket
Cucumber – 1

annnnnnnnnnnd, it’s the first week of fruit!

2007 CSA Week 5 - Fruit

Regional Blueberries-1 pint basket
Local Sweet Cherries-1 bag
Homegrown, organic Currants-1 basket

For dinner last night I made fettuccine with a deconstructed pesto, using all but a few leaves of the basil. For dessert, I washed the currants, took them off the stems, put them in two tiny white bowls, topped them with a couple of teaspoons of sugar, and served them with tiny spoons. Delicious! We ate the blueberries and half of the cherries for breakfast this morning and the rest of the cherries are in my bag for the airport. So is a generous hunk of the chocolate chip zucchini bread. Yay for nature! Yay for treats!
