CSA Week 12

I am so sorry that I am beginning the second half of the CSA. I have never blogged before this year and so I never took notice of when the halfway mark was for the CSA. I never want it to end.

This week was a tomato extravaganza. We got 4 medium tomatoes, 3 red stipeys, 1 purple zebra, 4 plums and 15 baby romas. Oh my goodness, I can't wait to eat every single mean, I can't wait to share them with my family. We also got one cucumber, one bunch of radishes, one head of lettuce, one small head of fennel, two bell peppers, a bunch of swiss chard and four serrano peppers. We also got three pounds of nectarines.
As an update to last week when I asked for recommendations. We made veggie tacos with the corn and tomatoes and zuccini. I made that with sprouted corn tortillas, grass fed pork chorizo and lots and lots of hot sauce. We also made a batch of my ratatouille and polenta, which I have turned into a casserole now so that I can make this the night before and heat it up. This might violate some international food laws, but my family likes it and I think it is better the next day.

Tonight we made leftovers of rice and beans and added a quick tomato and cucumber salad. I tossed on this a little red wine vinegar, olive oil, salt, pepper and some italian seasoning. Easy and simple.


  1. Do you share your recipes? Veggie Tacos, pork chorizo, and ratatouilee and polenta? Sounds awesome! I would LOVE to try these out.

  2. I absolutely share recipes! The Ratatouille I shared a couple weeks ago, I should add a link to that
    the veggie tacos I made super easy, I sauteedan ear of corn a half a large zuccini and a chopped skinless tomato in some olive oil. Then for the bean I made a crock pot of beans (beans water and spices-cumin, granulated garlic, paprika and salt) and just put the sausage in there too cook with the beans. It was really nice and the baby LOVES beans thank goodness!
