CSA week 13

CSA week 13, and it’s tomato season! Beautiful tomatoes, both slicers and Roma paste style, are in the box this week. The box was so heavy that I almost had to ask for help carrying it to my car!

CSA week 13 0825 2018This week’s box holds:

  • 1 huge cantaloupe
  • about 3 pounds green beans
  • 3 big Beefsteak-style tomatoes
  • 3 Roma paste tomatoes
  • 1 quart of gloriously ripe yellow cherry tomatoes
  • a big bunch basil
  • 6 ears corn
  • 1 ripe red pepper (long style)
  • 1 Romanesco broccoli
  • some kind of hard-shell winter squash
  • 2 big cucumbers

Obviously there’ll be a lot of tomato goodies this week. I’m thinking about a fresh tomato tart with herbed cream cheese.

I have more ideas inspired by this week’s box of produce:

I think I’ll cut that winter squash in half, roast it in a slow oven until it’s tender and delicious, and then see just what kind of flavor it has. I might put cubes of squash in a salad, or if it’s a chilly day, blend them with some caramelized onions into a fabulously easy soup. It’s hard to go wrong with great produce.
