CSA Week 9

Not an exciting week as far as cooking. Nick was out of town for a few days, and we went camping over the weekend. Also, the veggies we got this week were amazing, fresh, and delicious, but not inspirational.

This week we got:
One lonesome cucumber
5 big yellow tomatoes
Corn
A few little potatoes
Red onions
Handful of cherry tomatoes (not pictured... I might have eaten them all before the picture...)
Colorful.


One lonesome cucumber
Sliced, eaten with some hummus on our camping trip.

5 big yellow tomatoes
I gave 2 to my boss to thank him for giving me eggs. His eggs. his chickens' eggs. His family has a few chickens that produce a ton of eggs. They've had enough extra the last couple weeks that he's given us 2 dozen. So generous, and I wanted to thank him with some of our produce. The yellow tomatoes were odd and I thought his kids might get a kick out of them.

I ate the others with the hummus and cucumber when we were camping. I'm sure we were the only ones in the campground with CSA veggies and hummus. It felt so indulgent to have fresh veggies alongside freeze-dried chili.

Corn
Some went to my boss, along with the tomatoes. The rest was microwaved and devoured. Not quite as good as the (local) corn we got from Whole Foods last week, but still yummy.

A few little potatoes
Normal potatoe-y dishes. No particular plans for these guys.

Red onions
Salad toppings! I forget that the extra effort to put toppings on salads is totally worth it for the texture/flavor enhancement.

Cherry tomatoes
Eaten already, as mentioned. They're the perfect snack for me, since my natural tendency is to mindlessly devour whatever is in front of me. These are easy to eat quickly, but when you're done, you're actually full. And there are vitamins, unlike when I am eating 7 servings of chips at a time. It certainly helps that the tomatoes we've gotten this summer have been out of this world- perfectly ripe and enormous. Yum.
