The unusual weather continues in New England (are we sure it's July??) - and along with the cooler-and-wetter-than-normal pattern, we are also still seeing many of the cool weather crops (which is a-ok with me as the longer I have snap peas around, the happier I am!!). This week's CSA share has some favorites from previous weeks (lettuce, squash, garlic, and those fabulous snap peas!) - and adds fresh onions, broccoli, and carrots! Yay! No tomatoes or cucumbers yet, but we hear they're coming soon. Happily we've been able to get both those (and more) at the area farmers' markets, so between the CSA and the markets, we have plenty of veggies to suit the tastes of everyone in the family.
Tonight for dinner we're having a local meal of Hayward Farms chicken from the Nottingham farmers' market (which R is going to saute in a little olive oil and season with red pepper flakes), CSA broccoli (lightly steamed), and pattypan squash casserole made once again with homemade French bread. Can't resist fresh broccoli - yum!! And the spicy chicken goes really nicely with the casserole - the combination makes for one of my favorite meals this time of year!
