Fresh Pick (Aug 13)


This week carrots, eggplant, corn, romaine, kale, spinach , cucumber, zucchini, frying peppers.

The first thing I did was boil up those two pieces of corn. Aaron will eat them all himself if we let him so they did not go to waste.

Saturday night we had the Harradines over for dinner.

The romaine went into a chopped salad for dinner. So did the cucumber.DSC_0202

The kale was sauteed into Ellie Krieger’s quesadilla’s. Then more of it was put, along with the spinach, in smoothies. Best way to hide greens in your kids meals! (Husband too!)DSC_0205

The zucchini, peppers, and eggplant all went into a Tunisian Style Grilled Vegetable dish. It was a lot of work, but it was tasty. I think I could find a quicker way to make grilled veggies yummy, in fact I like them with just a bit of olive oil, salt and pepper best!


Finally the carrots. Braised with celery and served as a side dish. ‘Til next time people!
