What I Did & What I Got #7

What I Did With Week 6:

Thursday: Pasta with zucchini.

Friday: Chorizo with potatoes and steamed green beans.

Saturday: Ground turkey with onions and zucchini, side dish of roasted potatoes and green beans with herbs from the window boxes.

Sunday: Dinner was whole wheat flour tortilla pizzas topped with fennel, pepper and onion, with a “sauce” of pureed white beans, garlic, olive oil, and some herbs from the window boxes. A side salad of escarole, peppers, red onions, and cucumbers. I also made this soup minus the squash and used up more of the fennel and onions. I kept out half for lunches and froze the other half for later in the year when there’s appropriate squash to be had.

Monday: Had plans, skipped the share and grabbed McDonald’s.

Tuesday: You know when you just need steak tips and nothing else will do? Yeah. Steak tips with green beans and polenta (cornmeal from the winter share).

Wednesday: Fried egg and summer squash over the rest of the polenta.

Still left from week 6: 1 pepper, 2 fennel bulbs along with the stalks and fronds from the bulbs I have used, cabbage, 2 squash, 2 red onions, most of the escarole (it’s been chopped, washed, and bagged for salads, but it’s slow going), and 8 small potatoes.

What I Got Week 7:

Eggs, eggplant, escarole, 2 zucchini, 3 peppers (2 cubanelle, 1 green bell), 5 tomatoes, 3 onions (2 white, 1 red), basil, 4 potatoes.

As usual, I’m taking part in the CSA link partyhosted by In Her Chucks. I lurve it. Tons of great ideas every week on what to do with your CSA bounty. You all should check it out.

  1. That pizza sounds like it was amazing! I’m amazed at how much you manage to do with your CSA goodies! It could be a glare in the photograph, but it also looks like you have a green egg in your carton, if so, the person supplying your eggs has a really neat breed of chicken called an Ameraucana.

    1. I’m amazed at how much I get every week. It looks like a lot, then it seems to cook up into even more. We’re getting a mix of white and brown eggs, but the white ones aren’t bright white. They have some sort of green/blue/gray tinge to them. I don’t know what breeds they come from, but they are all delicious.

    1. Have you checked at http://www.localharvest.org/? That’s where I found both the farms I’ve signed on with.

      I do feel fortunate to have a lot of great farms to choose from in our area. When we’re looking to move out NH, I think the CSA options will be high on our list of criteria for choosing a new place.

      1. Oh, gosh, thanks for the link! Turns out there’s a CSA farm about 20 miles from here. Their season is nearly over, but I’ve got them bookmarked for next year. Woo!
