What did I do with everything? Let’s see… I made a few salads with the red sails lettuce and I still have the head of buttercrunch to finish. A wee bit of a problem since we’re getting two more heads today. I still haven’t used the scallions or potatoes, but they’ll keep so I’m not worried. The edamame we just ate, after steaming it in the microwave. Tomatoes: some were eaten sliced plain, some sliced with fresh mozzarella, good bread, and basil, some went in to salads, a couple were chopped and added to a second batch of eggplant gnocchi, I made a fresh tomato soup with several, and I have a couple left. I forgot to mention that on top of the 6 pounds of tomatoes from the CSA, I easily had another 6+ pounds from my garden. It’s tomato time. Cherry tomatoes we popped like candy, pretty much the same with the lipstick peppers. They’re so sweet and delicious. The apples were incredible and we ate all of them by the end of the weekend. I still have a handful of pears and plums left that I’ll need to do something with. Forgive me for this completely uncreative entry.
