What's For Dinner? Plus Week 10 of Our CSA!
First up this week's CSA bag!
We got yellow squash, zucchini, cucumbers, tomatoes and lots of basil!
I'll most likely dry the basil, since I'm not a huge fan of the taste of fresh basil. I thought about making pesto, but the problem with pesto is that after I've had a tablespoon or two I never finish the rest of it. I suppose I could make a batch and freeze what I don't want immediately, but I'm a little low on freezer space right now. The rest of the items will most likely be used before the end of the week!
Now let's talk about dinner!
Tonight we're doing a little heavier than we normally have during the week. We're going to have barbeque chicken, bacon cheese fries, squash/zucchini fritters, sliced tomatoes and cucumbers and homemade bread.
What are you having?

I love pesto! Also grilled mozzarella sandwiches on rye with basil leaves in them.
For dinner today we will have steamed broccoli and cauliflower with cheese sauce with whatever meat we end up with (grocery run later--I need to eat some red meat but all we have is chicken and turkey), and the rest of the cherry cobbler.

I made a butternut squash lasagna that had bechamel sauce/pesto sauce instead of tomato sauce that was very tasty--and not too heavy on the basil.

That sounds interesting! I have a butternut squash in the kitchen I haven't used yet....

bacon cheese fries with Ranch dressing might be the best meal EVER!
