Iron CSA: Week 2

CSA week 2

Considering that we had out of town guests visiting last week and had a few evenings in which we dined out, I am amazed at how well we did at eating what was in our box! This week, even though we ate in every night, it was harder to get through our box. Game on, meal planning. Game on.
Week Two
Here’s what we got (and what we did with it):
  • 2 zucchini (got soft and yucky before the end of the week)
  • 1 pattypan squash (kicked to next week)
  • 1 pickling cucumber (sliced and eaten with salt and pepper)
  • a scant pound of new red potatoes (grilled with last week’s onions in a packet)
  • 1 head of cabbage (kicked to next week)
  • 3 crookneck squash (1 was diced and added to the Feisty Green Beans below, the rest are going to next week)
  • 2 peaches (eaten out of hand)
  • 2 onions (kicked to next week)
  • 1 tomato (rotted after a couple days. MEH.)
  • a scant pound of green beans (half went into this Cashew Curry and the rest went into a half recipe of these Feisty Green Beans.)

Leftovers From Last Week

So far, so good! Some of these recipes were amazing! We particularly loved the Feisty Green Beans and the Sweet Cabbage Slaw.  If you are participating in a CSA, do you manage to finish everything in your box each week? If you don’t, what do you do with the leftovers?
