What's in the upcoming Box 8/24/2011

This week's box from Eatwell Farm will feature:

Cherry Tomatoes
Roma Tomatoes
Heirloom Tomatoes
Italian Large Leaf Basil
Summer Squash or Middle Eastern Cucumbers
Mixed Potatoes
Red or Green Bell Peppers
Banana Peppers

Cherry Tomatoes will become some pasta with pesto and these beauties added for color and wonderful flavor.  The romas will be in a greek salad with kalamata olives, celery and some of those middle eastern cukes and the last of the homemade feta cheese.  I think I'll make a roasted tomatillo salsa this week, a la Rick Bayless (check out his site at  The bell peppers will be stuffed and oven roasted.  The banana peppers will make wonderful breakfast scrambled egg burritos topped with the roasted tomatillo salsa.  Eggplant will go into baba ganoush - freezing some for winter.  The potatoes will become a potato salad for lunches.  Heirloom tomatoes will be wonderful Insalata Caprese with fresh mozz and reserved basil leaves from pesto making. Apples we will just eat throughout the week.  Sounds good!
