this is a low-flying panic attack

CSA Week 7:
1 bunch spinach
1 bunch carrots
1 bunch swiss chard
1 head lettuce
1 head garlic
1.5 pounds zucchini
2 eggplants
1 cucumber

Eggplants! Which meant eggplant parm. Which will probably end up being the most involved thing I'll make from these veggies all season, getting all the air/moisture out of the eggplant and then breading it is actually kind of a pain! Also I made a homemade sauce, loosely cribbed from this, with some added carrots, and subbing in hot sauce for red pepper flakes, but sadly without fresh basil. It still turned out great. There's even a picture somewhere (something we haven't been doing much this year).

CSA Week 8:
1 bunch beets
1 head lettuce
.5 pound green beans
1 bunch kale
1 bunch onions
3 zucchini
2 cucumbers

Best thing was just yesterday. Poached flounder loosely following a recipe (slightly modified to fit my pantry) from this incredible and hilarious book, served with buttered green beans and roasted zucchini. (The poaching sauce also made use of some onion, as well as the garlic and parsley– how is that parsley still holding up, it's just in a glass half-full of water in the fridge, it's been a long time!– from previous weeks.)


In other news... well, maybe I shouldn't talk about the election on LJ given that they're owned by the Russians now. Let's just leave it at that. :P
