CSA and Garden Menu, week of July 17th

Well, we picked up our box of CSA produce from the Colvins on Saturday morning; the boys threw in a couple of extra surprises which we were delighted to try. So, here's our weekly lineup (including a friend's garden bounty given us on Saturday and our own garden stuff) and what we're going to do with it...

CSA box
  • 2 small heads lettuce
  • 2 small heads cabbage
  • 1 regular zucchini
  • 1 8-ball zucchini (shaped like an 8-ball!)
  • 1 yellow squash
  • 1 bag carrots (maybe a pound?)
  • 1 bag small slicing onions (a pound?)
  • 1 bag cucumbers (maybe 6 or 7--didn't count and we've already eaten some--they're beautiful!)
  • 2 small yellow cucumbers (delicious and already gone)
  • 1 large bunch basil

Farmer's Market (while we were there picking up our box... we did some more shopping)
  • 1 pint sweet yellow cherry tomatoes
  • 1 tub local sheep's cheese that is DELICIOUS and kind of like feta

Friend's Bounty
  • 3 large zucchini
  • 3 mystery squashes (they know the name, but I don't--they look like baby acorn squashes)

Our Garden
  • heaps of basil
  • cucumber every day or so
  • banana peppers every few days
  • handful of cherry tomatoes every day or so
  • Romas, yellow slicing tomatoes, and red slicing tomatoes beginning to trickle in (if I can keep the squirrels away)

Our menu with all this fresh stuff:
