CSA Saturday: Week 9

I have to admit that I was less than inspired by last week’s basket.  Because of my allergies, I couldn’t eat half of what I received and I was just not feeling cooking this week.  This happens to me every now and then where I am completely disinterested in cooking.  It’s a sad week around here when this happens, especially for Barry, but I deserve a break every now and then, right?!  I did make one of my very favorite, simple dinners…grilled chicken (with my super secret spice rub), local tomatoes and goat cheese.  Plain, simple and pure delicious.

This week’s basket is great!  We’re getting out of the greens and into a fun variety of summer goodness 🙂  It’s also a perfect mix of things to add to the Mediterranean menu I’m making today for Barry’s family.

Nectarines, Lacinato Kale, Frying Peppers, Red Potatoes, Pickling Cucumbers, Cucumber, Blueberries, Tomato, Onion & Dill

Let’s start with this dill.  This is the largest bunch of dill I’ve ever seen!  If I hold it straight, it comes up to my waist!  I’ve already made some tzatziki with the dill and the cucumber (even though I can’t eat it 🙁 ) and I’ve added it to an eggplant caponata I made and some herb crusted grilled chicken legs.

It looks kind of gross in this photo, but it’s tasty!

I bought some extra potatoes and I’ll be simply roasting those, and dreaming of how I wish I could dip them in tzatziki.  For a salad, I’ll be making a tomato, pepper and feta salad…yum!  Later this week, I think I’m going to pick up some chicken sausages and make a nice sausage and peppers.

And last for today’s menu is a simple almond cake that I made.  This will go perfect with those fresh blueberries.

Yay for yummy food!  What would you make with this basket?

  • Hi I was wondering if you could give me an idea of how much and far you were running when you started training for the Disney Half Marathon? I’m planning on running the Half Marathon at WDW in January and wanted to make sure the goal is realistic. I love your blog by the way!
