Here's the haul this week:
ground cherries (not pictures b/c I ate them on the way home. 20), corn (2), tomatoes (9), peppers (2), basil, mint, garlic (1), squash (1 huge one) and...the previously-alluded-to 7 blue potatoes.
Since the husband isn't going to be around for dinner most nights this week...
- Tapas night: 1 part friends, 1 part alcohol and 1 part produce. Shake it all together and you've got a good happy hour! The food: Bruschetta (with CSA tomatoes & basil), tapenade, & herbed goat cheese (with herbs from the garden) to be spread (separately) on the carb of choice (bread/crackers), Patatas azules sin Bravas (roasted blue potatoes with aioli, no bravas sauce), something squash-related and turkey meatballs. The beverages: lemon-lavender vodka tonics, Pimm's cups, & lemon balm iced tea (for those that have to drive)
- Nachos: Call this a secret single supper. I certainly ate more random crap for dinner in my single days and when the mister is not going to be home from dinner, I indulge. I love my nachos LOADED. This week, I'm going to use the peppers (plus some hotter ones in the garden) to kick up some black beans. Cheddar, onions, tomatoes, corn off-the-cob and sour cream with also be toppings. Delicioso!
- Caffeinated mint tea: Because I can't have enough tea in the summer. Especially when I've got a long weekend of busting up our clay-y soil ahead of me.
