I wish I had a real cornucopia in which to display this week’s haul. One of these days I’ll have a kitchen/studio with space to store unnecessary things like cornucopias.
For some reason I keep expecting our CSA share to dwindle, even though autumn IS harvest season. And boy was it ever a big harvest this week!
That would add up to lettuce, Swiss chard, mustard greens, unidentified green, cilantro, long beans, tomatillos, a lone carrot, hot peppers, bell peppers, miraculous (but grade B) tomatoes, jilo eggplant (insanely bitter – I love bitter things but I have not acquired a taste for these!), ACORN SQUASH, which is my e’erything, PLUS unpictured ginormous leeks, a billion ears of sweet corn, onions, and potatoes.
I will do my best to do creative things with these beauties this week. I’ve fallen into a salad/cooked greens/raw veggie snack rut that I need to get out of. A large part of why I started blogging was to force myself to be more creative and varied in the kitchen, after all. So stay tuned for my attempts at de-rut-ifying myself!
