CSA Day: The traffic light edition

Here's the red, yellow, and green produce we picked up from Finger Pickin' Farms:

From the top down: Corn, tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, lime basil, and squash

Whew...with the start of school K and I have had to readjust our dinner schedule. We're eating later these days, which means that when dinner time finally rolls around, we're really hungry. To combat our ravenous appetites we're turning to make-ahead foods like soups and casseroles. Luckily autumn approaches, so hot dishes like these will be perfect.

We'll be making vegetarian tortilla soup, summer salads, and salsa with this week's vegetables.

The eggs are from Misty Meadows Farm. I had a lovely little chat with Kathy as I was picking up them up. We talked about how Sean and DPaul from Hedonia came to visit Misty Meadows Farm back in May, and I told her that I'd seen their write-up on the Hedonia blog. The blog post is definitely worth checking out. Oh, and while you're there you might want to read some of the Eatsdropper posts. Hilarious!

I hope you are having a great week and eating well!


  1. Yum!
    The squash at the bottom, is that the pale green kind? (I can't remember what they are called.) They were a first for us this summer. The color is lovely.

  2. Veggie tortilla soup? YUMMMY!!

    Let's vintage shop soon!!!

  3. liesl--i think the pale green squash are magda squash, and this summer was the first time for me to try them as well. they're wonderful. we've stuffed them, thrown them in soups, added them to nachos and tacos, eaten them with pasta, etc. i love 'em!

    juliia--let's definitely get together soon. and if you have any good vegetarian soup recipes, i'd love to hear about them. soup season is fast approaching!
