I did pick up a new produce box last week. As I mentioned previously, the CSA I belong to grows much of the produce on the farm, but they also offer selections from other locations based on seasonality and freshness. This is nice because it still provides a convenient confine to work in… MORE

I made sweet potato latkes and polenta egg puffs for brunch. I'd been thinking about the puffs since yesterday: 1 slice polenta topped with 1 slice tomato, beaten egg, and Cheddar cheese. Baked for about 20 minutes at 350 F. They were great with salsa. I winged it on the latkes. I took a… MORE

I did not end up using my squash last night -- poor little thing. Instead I made a pasta dish. I cooked some whole grain rotini and tossed it with olive oil, fancy salt, and toasted pine nuts. It sounds bland, but it was pretty good. I topped it with some Parmesan. The waning contents of my… MORE

I found another unused item from my most recent box delivery -- a lonely, forgotten squash. It's quite small, but perhaps I will use it to revisit my Delicata Delish recipe: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Delicata-Delish/Detail.aspx MORE

I'm going to write about the produce that comes in my CSA box every two weeks and what I did (or didn't do) with it. My most recent box arrived the week before last, so almost everything in it is gone at this point. There are a few apples left, a little spinach, and some sweet potatoes. I used… MORE
