CSA Week 12

CSA Week 12

This week we've got:
Cilantro
Green Beans
Tiny Baby Summer Squash
Zucchini
Cucumber
Tomatoes
Yellow Watermelon (a teensy bit sweeter than the big red ones)
Golden beets (apparently not quite as strong as the red ones)
Tomatillos
Onions
Lettuce
Potatoes
Jalapeño

Before I even put anything away I chopped up the tomatoes, most of the tomatillos, half the jalapeño, half the yellow onion, and a handful of cilantro and made myself some pico de gallo. It's yummy now but I'm going to wait until tomorrow to eat it with chips because I want the flavors to smoosh together. The tomatillos are sour, so I didn't put any lemon juice in like I saw recipes for; and I don't like things too hot so I didn't use much of the jalapeño. I'll roast the beets, probably, and we need to do something with the potatoes soon as they're overflowing the bowl in the fridge.

We're having the yellow watermelon for dessert. It's pretty.

The watermelon tasted like watermelon, really - Cory said it tasted a teensy bit sweeter than regular watermelon and I think it tasted a little lighter. I think I like the red ones better, but the yellow ones are still pretty good!

I have to wait on the beets until there's something Cory can eat while I'm eating beets. :)
