CSA Week 3 & 5

I'm a little behind on posting this, but here is what I made with the produce I received in weeks 3 & 5 of my CSA (week 4 I was on vacation and my coworker took my produce).

Week 3
Cantaloupe, Patty pan squash, peppers, cucumber, yellow squash, green beans

Patty pan squash
I sliced this up, tossed it with olive oil and some basil and oregano, then roasted it in the oven.

I mixed a portion of the cooked squash with tomatoes and served over pasta with a little more olive oil. 

I did a poor job with photographing for the rest of this batch.  The cantaloupe, cucumber and green beans were all cut up and eaten as snacks.  I used the green peppers and yellow squash as part of the filling for veggie burritos (along with black beans, onion, tomatoes, and corn).

Week 5
Corn, patty pan squash, kohlrabi, peppers, cucumbers

Green peppers
I diced up the green peppers and mixed them into a egg scramble.  I served it with salsa and a bit of cheese.  Simple, but tasty!

I cooked up the corn on the cob and ate one (fresh corn, delicious!) and then removed the rest of the corn from the cob.  I used it to make a quick and easy black bean and corn salad that I found on a couple of years ago.


Sliced up for snacking.  I love cucumbers, so I've been pretty happy that they have been so plentiful in the last few deliveries

Last week I didn't do so well with cooking (and may or may not have had cereal for dinner more than once) so I still have the kohlrabi and patty pan squash left.  Hopefully I can report back next week on a tasty kohlrabi dish, I have my eye on a good recipe.

Nice job cooking! That is something I need to learn to do. I have ate cheese for dinner every day this week so far.
