CSA Week Three: Ingredients

This week’s basket includes two heads of lettuce (one red, one green, probably Boston lettuce), spinach, broccoli, flat-leaf parsley, fresh garlic (enormous cloves!), and summer squash.

The expanded view:

This is one of those weeks that are going to be difficult; we pick up our CSA on Monday. Tuesday evening I have a work event, Wednesday evening I have a work event. Thursday I’ll be home. We’re flying home on Friday for a memorial service, and coming back Sunday. So I basically have two evenings in which to use all of this produce or otherwise process it to save for later (freezing, etc). So here’s my plan for the week:

  • Stuffed summer squash with Ricotta, mozzarella, and parmesan, pasta with tomatoes and ricotta, and salad
  • Pad see ew again
  • Gingered kale and tofu over rice with salad
  • Blanch and freeze the spinach for later

That plan *should* use up everything, especially if we both take salads for lunch as much as possible.
