Week Five of 2012

We got...  
Carrots, Chard, Cucumber, Green Beans, Head Lettuce, Salad Mix, Scallions, Spring Onions, Summer Squash, Zucchini, Basil, Parsley

My ideas...

Carrots – Here is a basic recipe for Perfectly CookedCarrots.  You could add any spices that would complement the rest of your menu.

Chard – Braising these greens will make for a great poolside dinner.  This dish can be eaten at any temperature. 

Cucumber – Food Network’s blog started Summerfest this week.  Here are a bunch of great Cucumber recipes.

Green Beans – With all this heat, cold salads are welcome dishes.  This Green Bean and ShallotSalad looks good.

Summer Squash and Zucchini – You can shred and freeze them or boil for 2 minutes, puree and freeze.  With frozen puree I’ve been making these muffins for my kids.  If I make them mini muffin size, they gobble them down.

Basil and Parsley – I love having this Salsa Verde around for just about anything – eggs, meat marinade, or mix with salad dressing, and so on.
