CSA Week 12

I was in Western New York on Saturday morning so M'honey picked up my veggies for me and he also  took a picture for me.  Amazing what will happen in our lives when we ask. ;) 

 I would have loved to have weighed this share. 

We got 5 slicing tomatoes, a seedless watermelon, a bunch of leaf lettuce,
3 gorgeous leeks, a bag of jalapenos, a bag of fingerling potatoes, 2 slicing onions, 5 carrots, 
a big bag of Yummy Orange Peppers (yes, thats the variety), a black and a green bell pepper, a nice heavy cabbage, a bunch of dandelion greens, a good sized eggplant, a pint of grape tomatoes, and a zucchini. 

Im planning on making a lot of salads this week.. I've got a frig full of salad yummies in addition to the peppers & tomatoes you see here, so we'll have salads with most of our dinners. 
I'm going to make my dear friend Didi's Manicotti With Roasted Garlic Eggplant & Italian Sausage.

 I'll be honest & tell you..  I dont even LIKE eggplant.. but I LOVE this dish.. Its that good and that easy!  If you eat Gluten Free, just put the filling in a baking dish when you bake it.. Thats what I did with my part of the recipe..  Yum!!  I bet you could stuff a zucchini boat with it too.. or a tomato or pepper..  Yum!

I'll also be making Cabbage Rolls this week and also Roasted Chicken with Carrots and New Potatoes. 

Im planning on doing a small batch canning session and can all the extra root veggies I have piling up in my vegetable drawers.. Or, I may decide to make a pot of veggie soup instead..  

Not sure what Im going to do with those dandelion greens but they're beautiful and I'll definitely be eating them. 

And if you're curious as to what those two things are on the far right of the photo of veggies.. The pink stuff in the basket is a Himalayan Salt Rock Lamp and the container covered with a white towel is Kombucha brewing. ♥

Have a wonderful week!


  1. Another week of good eating! The photo your husband took is wonderful. Hire him :-). Have a great day. Blessings...Mary

  2. I found your blog when I was looking around at other CSA's, and I was wondering what size share you guys get? Thanks!
