Review Week Ten of 2014
Here is what I did with the CSA share this week...
Caprese Salad – Slicing Tomatoes, Basil
A favorite when we get slicing tomatoes. I also add avocado into the rotation of tomato and mozzarella and use Balsamic Vinegar.
Wednesday Menu: Potato Chowder, Tomato Soup and Salad
Items from the CSA share used – Onions, Garlic, Carrots, Potatoes, Corn, Small Tomatoes, Salad Items
A reader shared two wonderful soup recipes. The leftovers were frozen in lunch size proportions.
Friday Menu: Thai Beef with Chiles and Basil, Corn on the Cob
Items from the CSA share used – Mariachi Peppers, Basil, Corn
I could make this Thai Beef recipe every week during pepper season.
Saturday Menu – Pizza and Salad
Items from the CSA share used – Head Lettuce, Carmen Peppers, Small Tomatoes, Onions, Peppers (all kinds)
On top of the homemade pizza I put Simple Marinated Peppers. In this batch of Simple Marinated Peppers I had Jalapeno, Carmen, and Bell Peppers. I’ve been eating them for lunch with a piece of crusty bread too.
Items from the CSA share used – Parsley, Green Beans, Potatoes, and Garlic
We all enjoyed this meal and it came together in little more than half an hour.
