What's For Dinner? Plus Week 13 Of Our CSA And A Peak At What We're Harvesting At Home!
First up let's take a peak at our CSA bag this week!
We got zucchini, squash, another melon, some more hard necked garlic, more basil, yellow snap beans, fingerling potatoes, peppers, tomatoes and edamame!
The basil went in with the basil from the previous weeks:
How's that for a big bunch of basil! I have used some of it, but still haven't gotten around to drying it yet. Still no room in the freezer for pesto either! That's about 18 inches of basil from one side to the other!
Now let's give you an idea of what's starting to come in in our little front porch container "garden" every few days or so:
Alexis usually munches on what we pick faster than I can get a photograph! Tomatoes, zucchini, cucumbers, eggplant, jalapeñoes and potatoes! We've also had some bell peppers, a few chick peas that we've been munching on right off the plant, some banana peppers and peas.
If you noticed in the background of the top CSA picture there are some apples that came off our trees. Out of all of our apples that the tree made, we were able to save 6 of them! The deer got the rest. Oh well! I'm going to do a garden update soon...I just need to find the time to sit down and write down what is happening!
Now let's talk about dinner!
Yesterday totally got away from me and I didn't get around to posting What's For Dinner? so I'm going to give you two for the price of one today!
Last night we had barbeque chicken from the slow cooker, roasted fingerling potatoes and fresh tomatoes with ranch dressing.
Tonight we're having turkey cutlets, yellow snap beans, brown rice, tomatoes and cucumbers.
What are you having?

I'm making a chicken salad with a roasted chicken I bought at the store. I pull off the skin and the meat is so tender and moist. I'm putting the chicken on top of romaine lettuce, grilled asparagus, heirloom tomatoes, grilled bell peppers and a homemade balsamic vinaigrette.

Isn't it though??
I roasted a chicken earlier today. I like to keep one in the fridge to make soup, quesadillas, etc. Lex is a big chicken fan! Your salad sounds fabulous!
