What's For Dinner? And Week 11 Of Our CSA!
Whoa what a day!
This morning I had a meeting so Jamison took Miss G over to camp. I got home and then not too long after that headed back over to pick up Miss G. Alexis ate lunch (which she helped back...black olives, a clementine and cantaloupe...How's that for varied? ;oP) and then laid down for her nap, while I did a few things, and when she got up we discovered that one of her butterflies had "hatched". (She got a butterfly garden for her birthday. It was sort of our "big" science experiment for the summer!) So we had to venture back down the mountain, and back over to the grocery store in the next town over, to grab some carnations to be sprinkled with sugar water for the emerging butterflies! It's been go, go, go!
And now to dinner!
Tonight we're having cheeseburgers. Jamison will have tater (I still hate that word!) tots. I've also made a macaroni salad that I wanted to try out for the weekend. Our Sunday school class is getting together food to take to the shelter on Sunday and I wanted to try out the salad before I made it to send! (It turned out good...You'll see it soon!) We'll probably have some fresh tomatoes and cucumbers as well.
What are you having?
And now what we got this week from our CSA!:
As the bags get bigger it's hard to fit it all into the shot! We got a bag of new potatoes, a cantaloupe, cucumbers, 2 large tomatoes, a bag of cherry tomatoes, another hard necked garlic, more basil (I haven't even touched the basil from last week yet...It's still in a glass of water on the counter!) and a bunch of squash!
I'm going to hang the basil up to dry later today. I'm going to end up freezing part of the squash most likely too. I'll have to find room in the freezer...Somewhere! Everything else we'll enjoy as the week goes along.
Have I mentioned how my CSA surprise on Monday is one of my favorite parts of the week??
I'm off. Hopefully I'll be back tomorrow with a recipe. School starts for us on Monday so I'm up to my ears in planning. I'll definitely be back for What's For Dinner? though so if there isn't a recipe I'll catch you tomorrow afternoon!

Ina makes Green Goddess Dressing when she has too much basil. It looked good to me!

Now there's an idea!

We are having one of my favorite "it's too hot to cook easy meals": soy chorizo quesadillas (I found tortillas that claim to be heart healthy) with green onions, vegan soy cheese, and vegan pinto beans. I'm sure I'll be adding sour cream and avocado for me only.

The avocado is very heart healthy. It has the good fat that your body needs.
