Here are some of my creations from Weeks #2, #3 and #4 of my local, Certified Organic CSA, as well as the pictures of my CSA boxes from Weeks #3 & #4.
Organic Zucchini Fritters over Organic Red Leaf Lettuce w/ Organic Radishes & Scallions and a Mustard Vinagrette. Combo of Week #3 and Week #4 boxes.
Gorgeous, home made pie crust (to house a Week #2 Greens & Scapes pie, below)
Organic Swiss Chard & Beet Greens Pie (from Week #2's box). I used the recipe for my Green Leek Pie using the Chard/Beet Greens and Scapes in for the leeks. That rosy glow is from the beet greens & red chard, isn't it lovely?
Organic Chickpea Salad w/ Organic Garlic Scapes, Celery & Carrots (also from Week #2).
The Bounty from Week #3: Organic beets, chard, red leaf lettuce (3 heads), zucchini, broccoli, cabbage and my favorite, scallions!
I love scallions and these were amazing!
Organic Broccoli Soup!
Organic Zucchini Fritters.
The Bounty from Week #4 (this week's box): FIVE heads of lettuce (sheesh!), beets, collards, something I'm not sure of (that head of something on the far left, maybe a funky, heritage escarole?), collards, oregano, chard, zucchini and even more GIGANTIC scallions than last week!
Told you the scallions were gigantic!
I still have a lot of stuff left, namely: scallions (a ton of scallions!), lettuce, three beets & their greens, and some zucchini. Oh heck, and some radishes from Week #2, and that head of cabbage and that head of I don't know what it is...uh oh! I did freeze about four cups of grated zucchini (I grated all of last week's zucchini and froze all of what I didn't use for the fritters).
What to do, what to do...now that this heat is breaking, I will probably make another pie :-) and some salads or something.
What are you guys making with your CSA bounties?
