Member Diary: Marcy’s August 27th Share

This is my second summer with the southside CSA.  I began two winters ago and was so impressed by the quality of the vegetables and fruit that I signed up for the regular season and have been hooked ever since.  i love to cook, but it’s just me and my husband, so i have a half monty share which is more than enough for us to make at least 2 or 3 meals from (with leftovers).  this year i also signed up for a half meat share, which has also been fantastic.  last week’s distro was plentiful – corn, swiss chard, purple potatoes, onions, peppers (anaheim/cubanelle and serrano), cherry tomatoes, tomatillos and papalo herb. i decided to try to make a one pot dish out of as many ingredients as i could from the share

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

3 cucumbers

2 onions

1 lb purple potatoes

1/2 lb serrano peppers

So on to the first meal!
