CSA, Week 10

This week's CSA share included:

  • 2 eggplants
  • 2 tomatoes
  • purple carrots
  • 4 ears of corn
  • 2 patty pan squash
  • purple bell pepper
  • 4 potatoes
  • 2 cantaloupe (1 with fruitlovers share)
  • quart blueberries (with fruitlovers share)

Here's how we used our veggies in the past week:
  • Zucchini Pie (trust me, this was delicious...much better than it a frittata):  zucchini, onion, tomatoes
  • Grilled Pork Chops and braised cabbage with apples:  pork chops from our meat CSA, cabbage
  • sandwiches and salads:  tomatoes, lettuce
  • Blackberry Cobbler:  blackberries and blueberries
  • Squash casserole:  yellow squash, onion, zucchini (from our garden)
  • Boiled potatoes:  red potatoes
  • fried green tomatoes:  green tomatoes
  • Tomato/basil/mozzarella appetizer:  tomatoes
  • Rolled Stuffed Eggplants
  • Yakinasu (Japanese Grilled Eggplant)
with soy-sauce/lemon juice

All those delicious meals and we still have lots leftover:  purple cabbage, green beans, bell pepper, blueberries and blackberries, lettuce, and cucumbers!  Add to that the squash, tomatoes, purple ("green") beans, and corn we got in our DWI box.  It seemed like we've been eating lots of veggies in the past week (and lots of meatless dinners too) but we definitely have room for improvement and need to get these leftover fruits and veggies used up asap!


  1. So what do you do with the patty pan squash? And I am inviting us over for dinner to try zuchini pie and blackberry cobbler ;)

  2. So far all I've done with patty pan squash is peel it, steam it, and puree it for Ethan. Cayne and I haven't actually eaten any! I think you can just use it like any squash or zucchini though...maybe even in zucchini pie!

    We will have you guys over for an early dinner or brunch when we pick some more zucchinis (or get them from the CSA). I also fixed the link so you can see what you are getting yourself into! :)
