CSA, hooray! Chapter 16


Another weekend away resulted in beginning another week with an overwhelming amount of vegetables filling both crisper drawers.

And since I had a ukelele lesson last night, and Mike walked in the door from work right before I got home, we threw together sandwiches at 8:30 p.m.

At least we used one tomato of the four in this week’s share, leaving:

  • two heads of cabbage
  • spicy greens mix
  • sweet red and green peppers
  • kale
  • summer squash
  • okra
  • green beans
  • small watermelon
  • carrots (that I forgot to put in the photo)

I whipped up a beef, cabbage and carrot stir fry tonight, over Ramen noodles (again, no judging). I’m not sure why I’ve always bought shredded cabbage and carrots ā€” the food processor got the job done in mere minutes.

When I was at the butcher buying tenderloin tips, I also picked some mild Italian sausage. Okra is next on the hit list. Anyone have a tried-and-true recipe for gumbo?
