CSA, hooray! Chapter 15

For whatever reason, I’m less enthused about this week’s CSA share than I’ve been about the others. I think I’m ready for the switch to fall vegetables (and sweaters!).

But beets did make their debut. Mike loves beets, which I typically roast. But these are pretty small, and wrapping them all in foil seems like a pain. Looks like it’s time to employ my well-seasoned Googling skills.

What else was in our share:

  • tomatoes
  • green beans
  • melon
  • okra
  • cilantro
  • peppers — green, red and hot yellow ones
  • Swiss chard
  • mystery leafy green
  • zucchini

I stir-fried boneless, skinless chicken thighs tonight, so have already used the green and red peppers, the Swiss chard and the mystery leafy green. I still have no idea what that leafy green was, even after giving it a quick taste before tossing it in at the end with the chard leaves. I finished the dish with a little Soyaki from Trader’s Joe’s, and served it over Ramen noodles, minus the spice packet. Don’t judge me — we were out of rice.

  1. Hmm … I don’t know! I’ll ask around. However, I am working on a post for an amazing tomato tart, which I’ve always made to use up all the basil and tomatoes, that I’ll put up soon!
