Every Monday night, the three of us look forward to a kitchen full of locally grown vegetables from MimoMex farm. It was important to us to not only eat healthier, but to get involved in our community and support our local farms. It is always a surprise to see what we will be taking home that evening, looking forward to creating dishes using fresh and seasonal produce. To help store our vegetables, we store most items in the fruit and vegetable drawers in our refrigerator, using plastic onion and tomato savers and GreenBags that help preserve the freshness and prolong the life of our herbs and leafy greens.
With this week’s September 30th CSA share from MimoMex farm, Alison, Shaina, and Kate, aka Coffee & Donuts (more on our share name later…) used this week’s items to highlight the basket’s Mexican flavors, using the corn, cilantro, red onion, and radishes to create chicken corn enchiladas with homemade green sauce! A green enchilada sauce is hard to come by in supermarkets, so we decided to make our own! To make this super easy medium spiced green enchilada sauce, we used this week’s cilantro and red onion, and previous week’s garlic, green bell peppers, jalapenos, and one habanero pepper. We found a good base recipe online, and tweaked it to make it slightly spicier.

This is my sharemate and I’s inaugural year with the Southside CSA and the Bridge share is the highlight of our Mondays. One us is from a ranch on the West Coast and the other is related to the head of Slowfood USA so we were thrilled to find such an awesome option in NYC. Despite the heat wave last week, we had our oven roaring and put together some fantastic dishes including walnut zucchini bread, a salad with roasted leeks and potatoes and roasted kale and beet quinoa.

With a crazy, busy week ahead of us we picked up our CSA share on Monday night and immediately got down to procrastinating about what we were going to make this week. Our time was going to be pretty limited, so we decided to try to combine as many ingredients as we could into two large meals, which would provide us with ample leftovers for the week. Here is what we got this week:
1 dozen eggs
4 lbs peaches
4 ears of corn
1 bunch of papalo
1 bunch of chard
3 green peppers
1/2 lb cherry tomatoes
1/2 lb tomatillos
1 lb purple potatoes
1/2 lb serrano peppers
So on to the first meal!

Jenny named our share Vlad, after her cat. There are four of us in the share, and every
Monday we ride our bikes to the Woods, divide up the produce, and cheers another hard
earned week of veggies.
