CSA Saturday: Week 11

Well I don’t have much to report this week in terms on recipes.  I made a lot of repeats.  Arugula, Beet & Goat Cheese Salad, Corn & Tomato Salad (I added feta this time), and the broccoli was boringly steamed as a side to a pinto bean, corn and tomato medley.

Moving on to this week’s basket, I got some fun new things and some old favorites!

Blueberries, Tomatoes, Kohlrabi, Beets, Pickling Cucumbers, Asian Eggplant, Green Leaf Lettuce & Peaches

So excited for the blueberries and peaches for my fruit this week!  As usual, those will disappear by the end of the weekend because we have no self control when it comes to fresh fruit.  Since I love roasted beets so much I will most likely just do that again and make a salad with the lettuce.  The kohlrabi will probably make its way into a slaw again, since I loved that so much.  And Barry will once again eat the cukes since I can’t.

I’m sure the tomatoes will make their way into numerous dishes, but one of my favorites is to combine them with the Asian eggplants.  Last year I used both to make Lidia’s Slow-Cooked Summer Tomato and Eggplant Sauce and it was the best sauce I’ve ever had.  Try this and you won’t be sorry!

I’m loving the variety in my basket this week and I can’t wait to dive in!  What would you make with this basket?
