Farm Fresh to You CSA Box – Week of 7/14/09

The longer I hold out before canceling our CSA subscription, the better the boxes get. Funny how that works. This week only two items were spoiled the day we received them. The only other mistake was that they left our box of food outside of the apartment gate, instead of in the secure part of the building.

This week’s haul:

  • Bing cherries – these were hands-down the best cherries I’ve ever eaten. I ate an entire pound of them in one day.
  • One eggplant – roasted in the oven (along with lots of CSA box veggies) at work today for lunch and eaten w/quinoa
  • Gypsy peppers – this time they only sent half a pound! Thank god! It was just the right amount – most went into salad, the rest were roasted for lunch.
  • Green cabbage – I still don’t know what to do with this. I’ve never cooked cabbage before. The outside leaves are looking a bit sketchy, so I should do something fast.
  • Heirloom tomatoes – Officially the first decent tasting tomatoes of the year. These were some nice little green heirlooms. Some went into salad, the rest went into ricotta & tomato pasta.
  • Spring mix lettuce – Enough for two salads.
  • Yellow onions – They’re…onions. Cute little ones.

Ok, that’s all now. We just made halvah and I am exausted and not-so-inspired to write more about cauliflower and such things. Goodnight.
