CSA week 2.

Week 2 of our CSA brought us some interesting stuff, some of which cause us to scratch our heads in our 100 degree kitchen. I was hell bent on leaving the oven OFF, so we had fun experimenting in the kitchen that week.

The CSA had:
sweet cherries, blueberries, apples
fingerling potatoes, beets, head lettuce, sugar snap peas, summer squash, garlic

We made:
oven fries with rosemary, garlic and thyme (ok, i turned the oven on once. i couldn't help it). - toss in olive oil and bake at 400 for 20-25 minutes
orzo pasta with julienne squash and shaved parmesan, with cherry tomatoes and basil
salad with snap peas, oranges and toasted almonds with asian vinaigrette (adapted from Mark Bittman)
red coconut vegetarian curry (101 Cookbooks - from her recipe book, Super Natural Every Day)
shaved carrot and beet salad with chopped apples on CSA lettuce (Oh She Glows)

and we snacked on most everything else. it was a good week!

we spent half of that week in hershey, PA most definitely NOT eating good healthy foods. but i also took a few chomps out of this guy, so not all was lost.
