What's For Dinner? Plus Week 15 Of Our CSA!

First up a peak at our CSA haul this week!

CSA Week 15

We got more basil (I'm drowning in basil!), cherry tomatoes (which Alexis devoured almost immediately), raspberries (of which I am not a fan, but Alexis has been eating), a large zucchini, a yellow squash, some heirloom tomatoes, jalapeñoes and some potatoes.

We also purchased the 40 tomatoes I mentioned earlier apart from our weekly share so I could can some:

CSA Week 15: 40 Pounds Of Tomatoes

The tomatoes were just beautiful! So ripe, so just perfect!

Now let's get down to What's For Dinner?!


Tonight Jamison starts his other class for the semester. Alexis and I will have veggie rice and some sliced tomatoes.

What are you having?

We are having a roasted chicken with a sweet potato hash. I realize we're eating chicken 2 dinners in a row, but the flavors will be entirely different. You mentioned before that you roast your chicken (I bought mine) and I searched your site for a how-to, but didn't see that. I'm scared of roasting both chicken and turkey (sorry Mom, but I have so many childhood memories of really dried out or raw) so I'm hoping you'll do a tutorial in the future. Thank you!

Chicken is easy! Here are the two ways I normally roast them in the oven:



As for turkey if you are cooking in the the oven brining it helps it stay moist!


Or you can cook a turkey breast in the slow cooker and it turns out really moist:


You can cook a whole chicken in the slow cooker using the same method and it turns out great too!

We were eating on some game chili I made, but also all the veggies I have been buying in my Farmers Market Purist frame of mind the past two weeks, so far so good, and I like your haul. Yes, Alexis lets down the yummy cherry tomatoes!!

Alexis has always been fond of tomatoes. When she first learned to walk she'd go pick them out of the garden and eat them right there. She didn't even care if they were ripe! LOL

Glad they helped Noelle!
