We had to skip a couple of weeks due to the Europe trip, but I wanted to keep our CSA journey on track. It's technically only week #8 for us, but since the CSA is in week #10, we'll stick with that. As we drove to our pick-up, this week, I worried about being stuck with yet another week of beet and scallion overload. But clearly there was a birth of crops while we were away because this week yielded some new and exciting options that we can't wait to eat!
carrots (they are red, purple, and yellow - just like the ones we saw in Paris!)
The squash blossoms and tomatillos are in red only because I've never cooked them before. I do have some ideas for them. Green tomatoes are in yellow for the same reason, except that I DEFINITELY know what I'm going to do with those! I put cucumbers in yellow because we got alot of them and I'm not quite sure how to use them all.
That's so funny - I wasn't even aware that carrots came in any other color other than orange, until I noticed that purple carrots are all over baby food. Now I see them everywhere. As for the tomatillos, I feel like a made a delicious Bobby Flay salsa from them at some point in my life. Good luck, Laura!ReplyDelete
