8.22 CSA Bounty & Menu

This week’s CSA box includes carrots, zucchini, radishes, romaine lettuce, butternut squash, basil, figs, cucumbers, an onion, a canary melon and yellow watermelon. Don’t be fooled by the normal look of the watermelon, it’s yellow inside. More on that later in the week.

It should be no surprise that I have leftover veggies from last week as well. I still have corn, more melon and carrots. The good thing about fresh-from-the-farm produce is it lasts longer in the fridge than what you usually find in the supermarket, so we’re still not in danger of things going to waste.

Here’s this week’s menu based on the CSA bounty.
