What's In the Box? 8/31/2011

This week we will be receiving:

Cherry Tomatoes
Shady Lady Tomatoes
Heirloom Tomatoes
Italian Large Leaf Basil
Summer Squash
German Butterball OR Yellow Finn Potatoes
Red or Green Bell Peppers
Sweet Peppers
Hot Peppers
Strawberries OR Peaches OR Plums

The fruit will go to yogurt smoothies for breakfast, except the melon which will make great snacking throughout the week.  I'm going to roast up those tomatillos with garlic and some tomatoes to make a salsa from Rick Bayless's website, http://www.rickbayless.com. The tomatoes will make a great Greek salad and a wonderful pasta dish with capers, garlic and anchovies (see Lidia Bastianich's website, http://www.lidiasitaly.com )  I think another potato gratin is in our future with lamb chops and summer squash.  The hot peppers will be frozen for use during the year.  The sweet peppers will be great with some sausage.  Lastly those bell peppers will be roasted and frozen for later use - I put them in olive oil last year but they didn't last as long as I had hoped.
