a vegetable-filled start to july

This week's CSA share was full of wonderful veggies - beets, snap peas, garlic, scallions, baby squash, lettuce... plus we stopped at Barker's farm stand in Stratham this afternoon, and picked up a couple things that weren't in the share (a cucumber and a couple different varieties of summer squash grown at Barker's, and 6 ears of Massachusetts-grown corn).

Seemed like another mostly-vegetable, mostly-local dinner was in order! My husband made black bean soup yesterday (I asked him to write down the recipe so I can share it with you soon) - so we had black beans, squash casserole, a tomato/cucumber salad, and corn on the cob for dinner today. I love vegetable season - some seriously good eating!!

Lovely CSA share. We are getting squash in now too - but not corn! Veg season is very inspiring for meals. Looking forward to the recipe.

Between the CSA and local farm stands like Barker's, we're definitely enjoying the veggies (despite all the rain!!).
