weekly csa round-up

wk 5 share: tomatoes, carrots, zucchini, lettuce, cilantro, parsley,green pepper, corn, cucumber, onions, green beans, jalapenos, red potatoes

This is the first week that we have eaten almost all of the vegetables.  We only missed about a fourth of the spinach, half a tomato, and two potatoes.  It was amazing how much more vegetables we were able to eat when we had a third mouth helping us at lunch and dinner.

Tuesday: Hamburgers and Veggies saute
veggies eaten: zucchini, green beans, and carrots

Wednesday: spinach, potato, and salmon in parchment paper (from Martha Stewart Living: New Classics)
veggies eaten: spinach, potato
comment: tasted great and was really fast to make and clean-up

Thursday: Lasagna and a salad
 veggies eaten: tomato, spinach, lettuce, green pepper, carrot, cucumber, onion

Monday: Individual Chicken Pot Pies, a salad, strawberry cake
veggies eaten:  onions, carrots, green beans, lettuce, cucumber, green pepper
comment:  the pies were great, as suggested in a comment I used crescent rolls.  I could probably have just used one triangle instead of a whole square.  I also think it would be possible to add more vegetables like potatoes or peas.  The strawberry cake was incredible.  I had already made it once for a dinner and the group of six finished it.  When I saw a buy one get one container of strawberries I couldn’t resist.
