2008 CSA Week 12

Monday, September 8th, 2008

The photo this week is a little different than most weeks. I was out of town at a conference and Jeremie picked up the share. He was very nice and took a picture of the booty with his cameraphone.

Week 12 CSA Share

Bolero Carrots-1 bunch
Walla Wall Onions-2
Tomatoes-3 pounds
Sun Gold Cherry Tomatoes-1 basket
Summer Squash-2 pounds
Black Bell Eggplant-1
Oregano-1 bunch
Sweet Peppers-3
Bright Lights Swiss Chard-1 bunch
Tomatillos – 1 pound

Fruit Share-Seckle Pears and Nectarines, blackberries

I did a bunch of baking and cooking yesterday. I made pita again and they turned out even better this time. I think the oven might have been a little hotter? Not sure. I also made black eyed pea hummus, tomato and feta salad, two batches of Chocolate Chip Zucchini bread, a triple batch of gazpacho for freezing, two chard and onion quiches, and tomatillo salsa. I followed this recipe from Epicurious, but I left out the serrano chili since I didn’t have one on hand. When the salsa finished cooking I thought it was delicious as-is, so I didn’t add the lime juice or cilantro.

2008 CSA Week 11 (catching up)

Monday, September 8th, 2008

This was the week of the Onion Incident.

2008 CSA Week 11 - Veg

Summer Squash-2 pounds
Walla Walla Onions-2 **
Edamame-1 bunch-the beans are much larger this week and look perfect
Peppers-3 each-this is a mix of peppers, all sweet varieties.
Chiogga Beets-1 bunch
Tomatoes-3 pounds
Sun Gold Cherry Tomatoes-1 basket
Summer Spinach-1 bunch
Sage-1 bunch

** note. This was supposed to be 2 onions. Whoever typed up the share list for the distribution site listed the onion quantity as 2 pounds. Since 2 onions weigh much, much less than two pounds of onions, the onions ran out rather quickly. Since we don’t get to the distribution site until about an hour after the pickup hours begin, no onions for us.

2008 CSA Week 11 - Fruit

donut peaches, red clapp pears, yellow peaches

We ate the spinach steamed with sweet sesame/soy sauce. The zucchinis went in to a batch of Chocolate Chip Zucchini bread, one loaf of which I traded with Eric for an Acela upgrade coupon. The edamame went in to the freezer and most of the tomatoes… we just ate. They’re delicious. We took the sungold cherry tomatoes along for a snack on the plane to Minneapolis.
