Good morning! CSA haul #5 arrived yesterday and what did we get this week?…. 3 ears of corn 1 bunch of carrots 2 tomatoes wax beans (kids looked at them and said “What ARE those?”) 1 perfect onion 10 cukes (= pickles!) …and….4…oh God… zucchini. I’m officially intimidated by all these things. Just call me… Continue reading Book Em, Dano.
(*NOTE: the main post for today is just below….Taking Pen to Paper….) Ok. My nine green friends are still sitting in a bowl on my counter. Part of me is intimidated by them, part of me just likes the way they look in the wooden salad bowl. A culinary quandary. Made a quick saute with… Continue reading Quick Zucchini Update

Well, right after that post, a friend of mine suggested that we “share a share”. A good way to… Continue reading Veggie-Palooza
