CSA: Week 6

It's officially the heart of the season now! Our basket this week includes:
Summer squash (some more zucchini and pattypan)
Green beans
Cucumbers
Radishes
Rainbow chard
Lettuce
Fresh garlic
Dill
Basil
This is actually a promising basket, which is good because after the last couple of weeks we really needed one with a lot of usable food.
  • The radish bulbs and cucumbers will be eaten raw.  
  • The rainbow chard will be used in a frittata with feta and olives.
  • The green beans have become a staple of Dr. BB's lunches.
  • The lettuce is up to Dr. BB, although I have a bit of a hankering for some Caesar salad, so I might help him out at one point.
  • I'm going to use the basil from this week and last and make some pesto.
  • We've been frying zucchini with dinners every night and we'll keep doing that to try to get through the squash. We might also have some squash risotto, although standing over a hot stove stirring risotto sounds tedious right now.
  • I have no idea what we're going to do with the dill or the garlic.

And that's all that is all in this week's installment of I Don't Know How to Use Herbs and Spices.
