csa day: tomatoes, potatoes, peppers and corn

In this week's CSA box from Finger Pickin' Farms we found:

Top row: Tomatoes, hot peppers, corn
Bottom row: Sweet peppers, potatoes, sun gold cherry tomatoes 

Meals have been simple this week. Corn on the cob, tomatoes and cheese, done. Tacos. Mushroom and egg toast made with shiitake mushrooms and eggs from the farmers' market and whole wheat toast from my freezer. Mom had us over for dinner one night. She made some really delicious baked spinach and ricotta egg rolls and pineapple upside down cake. We've been snacking on fudgesicles and basking in the glory of air-conditioning on days when the heat index has reached ridiculous numbers like 114 degrees.  

I did bake cinnamon rolls last weekend. I was craving a luxurious Sunday morning with lots of coffee and cream cheese frosting. K put on some classical records while we read the newspaper. It was amazing, and I think it might just become a weekend ritual. 

I hope you're staying cool and eating well this week!


  1. I do love the simple, but fresh cooking of this time of the year... hmm think I might buy some organic corn this at our local farm this evening.
    Warm wishes, tonya

  2. I think that egg picture is beyond perfect. It gave me a serious craving.

    Good for you, having a decadent weekend. Those are important to have from time to time.

    We had tacos this week too.

  3. Those cinnamon rolls look so good -- I think I want some for breakfast! Yum.

    And your mom's meal sounds delicious. I love when my mom cooks for me.
