CSA 2009: Ninth Share

I was desperate for this week’s share because we ran out of lettuce sometime on Friday. Alas, only one head this week. But it’s pretty big. We also had 1 1/4 lbs. of greens coming our way so I divided it up between arugula and mixed Asian greens. The rest: three squash (I have no idea what those little guys are in the corner left, but they’re so cute I just had to try them along with the summer squash), two cukes, two tiny eggplant, one pepper, radishes, onions, fennel, basil, cilantro, garlic, and a teensy little watermelon. I passed on the green beans because they looked tough and seedy to me — blech. Also, I skipped over the PYO flowers, parsley, and scallions because I was in a rush to get home. The flowers were looking tired last time anyway. Look at how small the watermelon is:

I’ll cut it into fourths for tomorrow’s dessert. Tonight for dessert I made apple sandwiches. I cored an apple and the sliced it so the hole is in the middle of the slice. Slathered on some peanut butter, added a few chocolate chips, and topped it with another apple slice. It was a big hit. Jake told me that it didn’t belong on the “cool dessert list,” but it belonged on the “AWESOME dessert list.” So there you are.

  1. I’m looking forward to seeing what’s in our share tomorrow. I’ve picked some of those tiny squash before ~ I used to think they were only decorative! LOL! :) I love sauteeing squash with garlic and onions. A little sea salt and pepper. Mmm.
