CSA Week 8!

We're back- we had a good time, but now for the box!

I did a trade this week- I don't think I've done that before, but I looked at the raddichio and knew that there was no way my stomach was going to eat that this week.  Sooo, I got more tomatoes. They looked mouth watering delicious, and I'm glad I chose wisely.  We went through 3/4 of them that night.

So, we got: Spinach, onion, raspberries, cherries, 2lbs sweet girl tomatoes, zucchini, pattypan squash, random other squash, and potatoes.

There was a great chicken salad recipe (week 18- the curried chicken salad) the farm shared with us last year that incorporated the spinach very well.  We had that the other night, and I think I could eat that for a week straight!

I'm also apparently stock piling potatoes.  We just don't eat them as fast as we get them...darn carbs!  But when we do, oh man are they delicious!

For the squash? I'm going to make a summer vegetable succotash with it- also way good.  I use whatever beans I have on hand since I'm not supposed to eat edemame (allergic to soy)

I bought a cherry pitter (is that even a word?) so I didn't have to mama bird the cherries w/little one.  Boy that thing is great!!! we downed a ridiculous amount of cherries in a very short time!

Good choice on the tomatoes. You know the dude calls them the Devil's fruit? I told him I eat them so I can stay nasty.
I am WAY jealous. You get such awesome foods!! Would you please come cook for me?
