This week we received 1 head of broccoli, 3 yellow onions, 1 bunch of leeks, 3 slicing tomatoes, 1 bell pepper, 3 Carmen peppers, 1 pint golden rave tomatoes, 1 basket of green beans, 1 bowl of broccoli rabe greens, 1 bowl of salad mix, and 1 head of garlic.
I was hoping to get some more squash, but I’ll settle for no more corn. I think we’re officially done with corn for the year, thank goodness. This was a pretty small share, and my fridge isn’t nearly as overflowing as it usually is on Wednesday evenings. I washed the lettuce immediately and along with the broccoli, a pepper, and some tomatoes I made a big salad for dinner. I also washed the broccoli rabe while I had my salad spinner out, so that’s ready to be sauteed tomorrow.
I’m making Smothered Cauliflower with Eggs for dinner tomorrow as well, and I’ll use the yellow tomatoes for that dish.
As for the leeks, well, my son and I have been cracking up over previews of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, particularly this little snippet: http://youtu.be/jbNvPoumEVU. And that’s all I can think of when I look at the leeks.
