I think this week's box from the farm is one of the best yet. I imagined this time of year would be full of this sort of wonderful bounty.
So let's see what's here....
A small watermelon - really the perfect size for Matt & I. Luckily Allen over at Eating Out Loud just did a great series on watermelon recipes, I think I'll do the salad.
Mini melon - This will be a breakfast treat on Sunday with some homemade cinnamon rolls.
Green Pepper - I do not like green peppers so this one is all Matt.
Garlic - What don't I use it in?!
Edamame - We love edamame as a snack & in this wonderful salad for lunch.
Oriental Lilac Bride Eggplant - This is bound for a stir-fry.
Leeks - I'm thinking a leek & yukina savoy gratin that was suggested in the farm's newsletter.
Sauté mix - We really like it wilted with different seasoning as a side dish.
Black eggplant - Baba Ganoush!
Cucumbers - One will get used in a salad or tatziki, the other I may you in a chicken & sautéed cucumber dish. I now it sounds weird but its really good.
Raspberries - A nice little fruit treat in our veggie box.
Yukina Savoy - see leeks
Zucchini - This is the biggest zucchini I've ever seen! Matt talking about zucchini bread, I'm talking about zucchini gratin, it is big enough for both?
Italia Peppers - I'm hoping thees taste different than regular green peppers.
Petite Green Beans - Steam those babies up & they don't need a thing, they are perfect as they are.
