You're a rainbow, CSA Day!

Doesn't the sight of all these vegetables make you feel warm and fuzzy inside? Don't you just want to hug a farmer right now?

Wow-oh-wow, I am loving this week's farm fresh vegetables!
We've got Roma beans, squash and zucchini, potatoes, white and green cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers, spicy blue basil (I think), cherry tomatoes, and onions.

Here's a better look at the tomatoes:
They are riotously colorful. I love the pale yellow ones, the purply red blobs, the little red-orange spheres, the green one flecked with yellow, and that lone orange torpedo-shaped one.

And this pile of beans? Gorgeous. I can't wait to eat them. My mom already cooked her half of them up. She called last night to say that they were wonderful--and she doesn't usually like green beans at all.

Thanks to Finger Pickin' Farms for the beans and of course the rest of these lovely vegetables. We'll be eating well!

Oh, and yesterday at the farmers' market they were giving out free plates of grilled fruit and vegetables. Mom and I sat down to a delicious snack of grilled eggplant, squash, and peaches, topped with basil, olive oil, and goat cheese. It was a wonderful snack! The peaches were my favorite; the grilling really brought out their sweetness and the creamy goat cheese tasted fabulous with it! Thanks Phoenix Hill Farmers' Market!
