The CSA share is a great investment. Life is a little chaotic, so I haven't updated you on the goodness.
Basil (I don't care for pesto, and not much for basil in general, so if anyone has ideas for alternate uses I'd appreciate it)
2 HUGE zucchini
6 ears sweet corn
6 or so pickling cucumbers (Kay from the farm said you can eat them in salad, but I might try a quick pickle method on them)
Big bag of lettuce--I bought some more beets, so I am making more beet salad. Yum yum.)
The Romance Heroine came over for dinner last night and we had spicy chicken thighs with yogurt sauce ( Cooking Light recipe, couscous, and zucchini-corn-onion-red pepper saute. And we had the Lime Rum Shrub, which turned out awsome. You can drink it straight or mix it with ginger ale and add maraschino cherries and a little lime. Then, somewhat tipsy, we went to DQ. And then we played The Sassy Experience, which is somewhat lame.
Last week's CSA haul:
1 big onion
2 cups popcorn
And a pattypan squash, which I hate to say, but it is true--looks like a genital wart.
Off to cook some dinner!
