Fall CSA, Week Two
I have to admit that for the first time all year, I wasn’t really all that excited to go get the veggie box this week. Feeling kind of uninspired. Blah. No reason. Just blah.
Getting my tookus to the store and getting the veggie and fruit boxes did perk me up a bit, though. It’s hard to not be impressed by the fresh box of goodies. And, I did notice that I could smell the pears while I was driving home in the car. (So, I ate one with dinner.)
Allrighty then, what’s on the menu this week?
Anaheim and romanian peppers, delicata squash, spaghetti squash, heirloom tomatoes, roma tomatoes, summer squash, eggplant (they are cute little white ones … too bad I hate them so much), cherry tomatoes, garlic chives, onions and potatoes
The fruit box was full of all kinds of goodies. Four different varieties of apples, pears and a couple of peaches.
The CSA newletter included a recipe for stuffed eggplant that looked (almost) good enough to make me try another attempt at eggplant. Maybe. Here’s a link to their site, if you want to check it out. There’s even some good information on the nutritional value of my dreaded foe, the Ughplant.
