Unfortunately, I do not have a photo to share for this week’s CSA bounty. As soon as I received the “In the Bag” email from Potomac Vegetable Farm, telling me what fabulous vegetables we would receive in this week’s share, I went to work trying to figure out what to make for dinner last night. I waited as patiently as I possibly could for my husband to come home with our veggies, however he came home later than usual, so we had to get cooking, which left no time for a photo. Oh well, I guess the photos of the recipes I make this week will have to be enough.

Here’s what was “In the Bag”:

  • garlic curls
  • swiss chard
  • yellow squash
  • zucchini
  • arrow head cabbage
  • beets and beet greens
  • sweet peas
  • red leaf lettuce
  • romaine lettuce
  • dill
  • onions
  • garlic

I am not exactly sure the exact varieties of the above mentioned vegetables, but I’m going to see if I can find out.

To supplement my Potomac Vegetable Farm CSA share, I ordered the following from Star Hollow Farm’s online CSA:

  • blueberries (2 pints)
  • bi-color sweet corn (4 ears)
  • green beans (1 lb.)
  • portabella mushrooms (1 lb.)

Her’s a list of what I have done with these vegetables:

Last night I made Mexican Pizza with zucchini, onions, and garlic curls (check back soon for the recipe) and a simple salad with red leaf lettuce, sweet peas (removed the peas from the shells, as they were a little tough), cherry tomatoes (from Star Hollow Farm), and a lime vinaigrette (check back soon for the recipe). This was my first time making Mexican Pizza – it was quite yummy!
