CSA: 8.19.10

Grapes, pears, oranges, green leaf lettuce, celery, broccoli, nectarines, banana peppers, roma tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, squash, zucchini, lettuce, avacado, onion (not pictured)
Yea, finally some celery and broccoli, my family's two favorite vegetables!!!

So, how am I going to use all this in the coming week?
  • Grapes, pears, oranges, and nectarines I'll pack in David's lunch and for Emily and my breakfast, lunch, and snack throughout the week
  • I'll be eating the roma tomatoes in Caprese-style salads/sandwiches, on my half of a Hawaiian pizza, in slices on my sandwiches and I may have to find a new recipe for gravy
  • I'll serve guacamole with our steak fajitas this week to use the avacados
  • I'll serve a salad this week to use up the green leaf lettuce and further help us cut back on so many carb-rich side dishes.  I'll have cherry tomatoes on my salad and I'll use the rest of the cherry tomatoes over my steak fajitas
  • I'm going to saute the squash and zucchini to eat for lunch this week as I'm the only one who eats it
  • I will steam the broccoli mainly for Emily (she loves it!)
  • I honestly have no clue how to use up the banana peppers but I'm on the hunt for a recipe.  Maybe salsa?!?!?

  1. Slice the banana peppers and add to sandwiches and salads - they aren't very spicy at all.
