Eat Your Veggies! Robert Treat Farm CSA Weeks 11 & 12
|August 23, 2014||Posted by Sarah under 2014 CSA|
I know this is how nature works, but I hate that the best parts of summer come at the end of the season. I wish all the awesomeness we’re getting now could last longer than just a few weeks!! I’ve been making some wonderful eggplant parmesan, big salads and oh yeah, all those leftovers from my BBQ a few weeks ago fed us for quite a few days!
Week 11 brought more lettuce, tons of ripe tomatoes, potatoes and onions. I also grabbed one of the peppers from Keira to grill up for B…just because I can’t eat them doesn’t mean that he shouldn’t enjoy them!
Week 12 brought more of my favorites corn, carrots and tomatoes, along with some gorgeous swiss chard and savoy cabbage. I think I’m just going to juice the chard, but I’m not sure what to do with the savoy cabbage besides tons of slaws…any suggestions?
It was also a fruit week and I was stoked to get 2 of my favs…blueberries and peaches!
I split a lot of the stuff with Keira since I knew we couldn’t finish 6 giant tomatoes. She was excited because there were bonus hot peppers this week which her hubs LOVES. I see a lot of spicy dishes in her future.
Only 4 weeks are left of the CSA and sadly the Farmers Market ends next week 🙁 That means no more fresh fish on Wednesday and no more sweet treats like cupcakes or cannolis…well I guess for the second one it’s a good thing, my waist line will be happy.
Hope you’re enjoying the last of what the summer has to offer…it’s been a great year!
