CSA, Week 6

This week's CSA included:
  • 2 small kohlrabi
  • 1 red onion
  • baby carrots
  • 3 squash
  • 3 cucumbers
  • 3 zucchini
  • green beans
  • yukina savoy
  • blueberries
  • 2 quarts blackberries (in the fruitlovers share)
Ethan wants to try a blueberry!

Here's how we used (most of) last week's veggies:

  • Strawberry ice cream:  strawberries (and Hatch Dairy milk and cream)
  • Roast Chicken:  squash and CSA chicken
  • Chicken and squash casserole:  leftover roast chicken, squash, zucchini, carrots and onion
  • Refrigerator pickles:  cucumbers
  • lunch salad:  lettuce (from last week's DWI box), squash, and zucchini
  • Frozen Peas:  all the peas

We still have quite a bit left over from last week (green beans, bok choy, yukina savoy, beets, and some extra squash and onions (from the DWI box).  This is partly because our CSA box has been getting fuller each time we pick it up as summer gets into high gear so I really need to figure out a good way to store some of these veggies for later use.  I'm looking forward to using the peas I froze in casseroles and soups, for example.  This weekend is the freezing/canning class at the Williamson County Cooperative Extension, so I'm looking froward to seeing how that goes.
