CSA Adventures – Week 9

Here’s the lowdown on this week’s haul:

  • 1 lb of heirloom tomatoes
  • 2 lbs of red beets
  • 0.4 lbs of mustard greens
  • 2 bunches of carrots
  • 4 peppers
  • 5 cucumbers
  • 2 zucchini
  • 1 kohlrabi
  • 1 quart of cherry tomatoes
  • 1 stalk of garlic
  • 6 basil “tops”

Week 9′s share – minus a couple of cherry tomatoes

This week I’m trying something new and taking a stab at menu planning for the week. The plan of attack for this week’s share: veggie pizza with peppers, garlicĀ  and tomatoes; salad with mustard greens, tomatoes, cucumber, and pepper; stuffed peppers; ; we’re pretty much obsessed with this zucchini side; carrots, kohlrabi, and remaining cherry tomatoes will be used as snacks. The majority of the cukes were made into dill refrigerator pickles. The beets are going to be made into these pancakes tomorrow morning. Loving the color – hope they taste as delicious as they look! There’s not much basil, so it will probably be added in to the stuffed peppers or zucchini side to add another level of flavor.

I spent tonight after Monster went to bed making pickles and prepping the beets for tomorrow’s pancakes (did everything but puree them). I had a blast – who knew staying in on Saturday night could be so much fun! ;)

Pickles!

As always, I’m linking up to the “What’s in the Box?” linky party over at In Her Chucks. Check it out!
