I know that you were paying very close attention to my CSA report last week and you're thinking, "But there were green beans in last week's share. Is she losing her memory or what?" And since I know you're uber-concerned about this, I'll tell you that I do remember that 1.5 lbs of green beans from last week. I remember because I just finally got around to cooking them and making green bean and feta salad out of them tonight. After picking up six (yes, S.I.X.) lbs of green beans this week. What in the world will a single gal do with 6 lbs. of green beans, you ask? Why freeze them, of course. Admit it, you'll be jealous in January when I'm eating green beans from my CSA and you're buying Green Giant beans in a can.
Anyway, on to the report:
- 6 lbs green beans (includes additional half-share)
- 2 lbs chard (includes additional full-share)
- 2 medium tomatoes and about 10 large grape-type tomatoes (2.25 lb)
- 1 small and 1 large head garlic (includes additional full-share)
- 2 small zucchini (1.5 lb)
- 1 small yellow squash (.5 lb)
- 1 medium cucumber (1 lb)
- abt. 4 large stems basil
- 2 sprigs oregano
- 1 sprig sage
- 2 sprigs mint
I'm looking forward to making a sauce or maybe a soup with my zucchini, squash, tomatoes, basil, and oregano, but if you can think of other recipes or dishes that I can use these foods in, I'm definitely looking for ways to change things up. I tend to get into a rut and make the same dishes over and over again, but I can't afford to get sick of these veggies. There are a lot more of them where these came from.
