CSA + Garden Haul Week 5 (6/24/12)

I was out of town this past week, so a friend picked up our CSA share yesterday. (Thanks, Bridgette!) I think Bridgette and her hubby threw in a few extra things from another friend's garden, and I think they also got a few freebies from the Colvins. So, we have a large box of veggies to eat up by... this Thursday! No picture this week--too late when we got home last night from our trip and too much to do this morning. It's a shame because we have a TON o' produce lying around. Veggies for breakfast, lunch, and dinner this week....

But for the record:
  • 1 medium head cabbage
  • 2 small heads lettuce (the friends' garden?)
  • 1 bag mixed basil (I think this may be from the other friends' garden)
  • 1 bag arugula
  • 3 bulbs garlic
  • 1 big bunch green onions
  • 1 huge pattypan squash
  • 5 turnips (a few of which I left with Bridgette ☺)
  • 1 one-ball yellow squash
  • 6 small crookneck squash
  • 2 zucchini
  • 2 cucumbers
  • 1 pound red potatoes
haven't even been to the garden yet, but everything looks good!

+ 2 pounds of green beans from a friend's garden!

  • half large head Napa cabbage
  • radishes
  • carrots (not from CSA)
Menu Possibilities:
  • squash casserole! (had this last week and the kids loved it; I have three recipes for this that are all good, so I hope to post them all)
  • salad and slaw
  • stir-fry
  • curried veggies with rice
