Holy Mackerel. I am tired. Work has been busy this week, crazy busy. Between trying to meet deadlines and trying to research what I want to research for the blog. I am drained.
The CSA gave us a manageable amount of veg this week. We got one head of lettuce, one bunch of radishes, 2 zucchinis (I was naughty and took the only big ones in the box, hey someone had to take them! The next people won't even know!!), 2 cucumbers, 2 peppers, 2 onions, a pound of yellow beans, a whole mess of tomatoes-little ones, big ones, yellow ones, red ones. We also got the world's smallest head of cabbage and also the world's smallest bunch of dill (it is really like 3 sprigs). But I am not being snarky. No, I am actually thankful. When I buy cabbage or dill at the farmer's market I usually end up throwing some away because there is just too much. A shame I know. We also got a basket of yummy plums.
I am planning on a tart for the plums. I bought a tart pan this week. I am thinking of making an almond crust?? That will definitely be a blog post provided that it actually happens. I am just not sure what to do with the other ones...I suppose I have to think on things. This is the week I need easy recipes, no time plus no energy equals a Mommy that needs a break on the complicated cooking. I have really been going at it recently with big elaborate meals. This week might need to be more salads. Any suggestions?
