This is the week in which I have too much food. I did get my veggies last week, and SuperC picked up my share for this week. I now have way too much vegetable matter in my house. Complicating matters is the fact that I am still commuting by bus and train, so that sucks up a lot of time and isn't necessarily conducive to grocery shopping.
Also I think I want to grill since it's only in the 70s today, but it's raining and I have no matches. Also it might lure Mencken and the other neighborhood kitties.
What I've got (the last 2+ week's pickups):
1 pt blueberries (I don't understand why people like commercially grown blueberries, but I can get behind farm berries. I just don't know what to do with them.)
4 wart squashes
3 pickling cucumbers, which I just added to the brine I already used for the other pickles.
4 regular cukes (Wait! Inspiration has struck! Ever since reading Julie Powell's blog, I have wanted to try the Mastering the Art of French Cooking recipe for baked cucumbers that Powell swears is awesome. Is this the week?)
6 corn (2 of which I am having for lunch with chicken and bbq sauce)
1 head garlic
more popcorn (I'll say this--every time I see the popcorn I remember how much weight I lost at Weight Watchers and that the Core Plan isn't that bad.)
2 bunches of basil, starting to turn
1 head of bok choy. (I'm a little afraid of the bok choy)
1 lb string beans
lots of red, white and Yukon Gold potatoes
2 very pretty green peppers
okra (i am both dismayed and afraid of the o-k-r-a)
broccoli (Let's not mention the broccoli.)
There's other stuff too, bought at the ( hushed voice) grocery store.
Off to consult Cooking Light and make a shoppng list! Thank heavens the Romance Heroine might be coming over for dinner this week.
