CSA Share for 2010 Week Sixteen

It’s Week Sixteen; only a few more weeks till pickups are no more :-(.  Hopefully you have some farm veggies in the freezer to extend the season a bit.  In our share this week:

  • bell peppers
  • bok choi
  • eggplant
  • garlic
  • kale
  • leeks
  • onions
  • potatoes
  • red cabbage
  • summer squash
  • sweet potatoes
  • pick-your-own cherry tomatoes, tomatillos, hot peppers, parsley

I was SO happy to see more eggplant because I want to make another, bigger batch of the eggplant parmesan that I tried last week (see my previous post).  It will be easier with the larger eggplant that was in our share this week.  I’m also planning on replenishing my frozen stock of Chocolate Zucchini Muffins (see my previous post).  The Pasta with Lentils and Kale that I made a few months ago deserves another go, and making another batch of the Creamy Leek and Potato Soup is essential (SO good) since the weather is going to cool down nicely this weekend (see my first photo of a previous post).  The new recipe (which calls for a sweet potato) that I plan on trying this week is Chicken and Vegetable Coconut Curry over at abundanceonadime.

I still had the head of broccoli from last week’s share which definitely needed to be used up today, so I made dinner based on this Baked Tofu with Broccoli recipe over at littlebluehen.  Instead of baking the tofu (which I have done before), I decided to try pan frying it with the minced garlic and some cooked chicken pieces.  I then added the sauce and cooked just a bit longer, and combined it all with the steamed broccoli.  Served over rice and drizzled with the toasted sesame oil and sesame seeds, this was very good, but would have been soooooo much better if I had done this last week when the broccoli was nice and fresh!

    About those pick-your-own tomatillos: I picked a basket of them Wednesday and am planning on making another batch of tomatillo salsa. (Maybe to serve over enchiladas for the farm party???) I was just over at Whole Foods and saw them for $2.99 a pound! From Mexico! And they were the tiniest, sorriest looking things you ever did see.


    • Makes one all that more appreciative of our farm when we see the alternatives! I picked a bunch of tomatillos, too, and would LOVE the tomatillo salsa recipe that you use. I’ve only used them in a taco soup recipe. I’m still deciding on what to bring to the farm party (other than a chocolate cake!).

        Oh, sorry, I should click on “Notify me of follow-up comments,” I see – I didn’t see this comment until just now. Anyway, you obviously found a delicious recipe on your own. 🙂
