Week 19 of 2011

We got...  
Arugula, Beefsteak Tomatoes, Butternut Squash, Mustard Greens, Onions, Red Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes, Turnips
Fruit: Apples
My plans...
I would like to make some Arugula Pesto to freeze.  Maybe some will find its way onto roasted potatoes or used as a pizza sauce.

Beefsteak Tomatoes
I think I’m just going to enjoy the fact that we are still getting tomatoes in October.
Butternut Squash
I can’t wait to try a recipe in Everyday Food vol. 86 for Braised Chicken with Butternut Squash and Cranberries.  I can’t share the link because it’s not up on their website yet. 
Mustard Greens
After working with these last week I thought I’d like to make Braised Mustard Greens.  This recipe on looks like a good way to go.

Our farm has a tremendous yield of onions this year - a joy amidst all the trials from Hurricane Irene.  I’m very happy to have them and will use them for as long as I can.
Potatoes and Turnips
I found this great roasted chicken recipe in the spring that featured spring vegetables.  I’m thinking of adapting it for winter vegetables.  I’ll be using beets, potatoes, radishes, and turnips.
