This weeks farm bounty::
Okay, I'm sort of kidding. But look at those tomatoes!! I still had a crush on the sweet peas that just finished up and then these come along. The holy grail of summer……… better than any candy in my opinion.
But seriously, we did get a lot more than tomatoes. This week's share included::
summer squash & zucchini (4 varieties)
We're still making those fridge pickles and we made this stew (yummy!). I'm drying herbs in the window and making pesto to freeze. We're making zucchini fritters again this weekend and I give you this bit of advice. Do not forget to salt them. Otherwise you end up making slightly soggy fritters. Still edible…. but sort of soggy.
Most of these delicious veggies are gobbled up raw. I sautéed some kale and tossed it with leftover roasted veggies, sea salt and nutritional yeast for some really yummy lunch-time burritos. To use up some zucchini, these recipes look super yummy : Zucchini Fries + Stuffed Zucchini. I also saw it on grilled pizza and tossed with pasta. Easy + delicious.
One more drool-worthy tomato shot for you…….
ahhhhhh…… so good right?
ps ~ 28 pounds of berries were picked this morning before the rain rolled in…. bringing the total to 54 pounds! Halfway to one hundered!
