csa share :: week 10 + summer food……

Firstly….. thank you all for the sweet words yesterday. I'm always a little uncertain when baring my soul like that…. and you are always so sweet & fill my heart up. Seriously awesome. Thank you~

Secondly, Monday was one of those rough days. We had a ton of things to get done, Joe got in a fender bender on the way home from work. Scary but no one was hurt. He & I ran a zillion errands and arrived home totally exhausted at 8:30 (then tackled building a bed for the big kid, it was a long night!) Needless to say, there was not a speck of sunlight to get a lovely photo of our share this week. Instead you'll have to settle for this::

  2. I really want to make the fritters but the house we are renting doesn’t have a grater! I’m surrounded by zucchini and can’t grate any of it. Seeing as we are coming home in 9 days I’ll just have to stick it out a little longer. You do make the most yummy meals!

  3. Just found your blog, I actually saw it it two different places today (being sick on summer day I’d say the odd were increased)! It was providence then that it was so lovely AND I had absolutely zero inspiration for dinner tonight. Your zucchini fritters are just what I needed to see. I’m sending the kids over to the farmstand for some zukes! Thank you! I’ll try to put a link int this weeks CSA newsletter for them!

  4. So Crazy, I just took a peek at your about page and realized who you are! I am a Cordova gal myself 🙂 My mom told me about your blog ages ago and she could never remember the name of it! So fun! It’s a small world!

  5. Oh my goodness!! I totally forgot you were in New England. I've known your mom for ages!! Penny, right? I always bump into her when I go back to Cordova. She and I talked a lot about you and the farm last summer while at a class at The Net Loft. What a small world indeed!
