Hope everyone had a great weekend! It was great weather up here in Minnesota - not too hot and a bit of rain on Sunday - but otherwise great.
We received our 5th crop share on Thursday and it was unbelievable! We have so many tomatoes and peppers and other great veggies and we're excited to use them. I still yet to make that carrot cake I had on my list from last week and since we received some more carrots I better get to work soon! Notice that the picture is taken on our new table...not that you can see much yet.
Here is what we received this time:
*2 yellow squashes
*4 green peppers
*bunch of carrots
*salad mix with dill (yep, it's heading to your house, Diane)
*1 japanese eggplant, 1 globe eggplant
*Yellow cherry tomatoes
*3 red onions
*1 bunch of scallions
*2 bulbs of garlic
*fresh herbs - basil, sage, parsley and thyme
*some spicy peppers
Is that a ton of loot or what? Of course we are open to ideas for using all of this! I'm thinking salsa, sauteed red onions and peppers, and some roasted green onions.
Ryan and I went to my parent's house this weekend and picked up some tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers and eggplants. Whew! We have a lot of cooking to do.
