Week Seven of 2013

Back from vacation and produce draw is full again...

We got...
Chard, Corn, Cucumber, Eggplant, Green Beans, Green Peppers, Potatoes, Salad Mix, Summer Squash, Zucchini, Basil

Fruit: Peaches
My ideas....
Chard – I’m going to use Chard for this Spinach recipe, Shrimp Fettuccine withSpinach and Parmesan.
Corn – My husband and seven year old have been asking for corn since our share started this year, so this week I will only be allowed to boil and serve the corn.
Cucumber and Eggplant – Looking forward to these Grilled Eggplant Bahn Mi Sandwiches.
Green Beans – This Steamed Green Bean with Lemon-Mint Dressing recipe has three additional variations.  To start the main recipe suggests using basil instead of mint, good...we got basil this week.  The three additional variations are Red Pepper and Pesto, Ginger Sesame, and Stewed Tomato and Spices.
Green Peppers and PotatoesSkirt Steak with Peppers looks yummy.  The recipe includes as side dish using both peppers and potatoes.
Zucchini – I’ve already made this Spicy Turkey and Zucchini Burgers.  They are delicious.  Also easy to prep and put in the fridge to have ready when you return home ready to eat as soon as you can cook them on the grill.
Relevant Notes: I had several readers ask for Eggplant recipes.  Check out this special post, Readers Request:Eggplant Suggestions.
