What's in the box - 10/5/2011

Good things coming our way this week from Eatwell Farm:

Cherry Tomatoes
Heirloom Tomatoes
Shady Lady or Roma Tomatoes
Italian Large Leaf Basil
Summer Squash
Romaine Lettuce
Sweet Banana Peppers or Bell Peppers
Watermelon or Melon

One thing we won't have to worry about is contaminated melon!  Thank you. Eatwell Farm.  The tomatoes and eggplant will become eggplant parmesan - we ate thru all the eggplant parm I previously made.  There will be arugula salad with pears, toasted pine nuts, balsamic vinegar and oil topped with a generous shaving of lavender ricotta salata cheese.    The melon will make tasty snacks, but if it is a cantaloupe melon, I will be very tempted to treat us to some prosciutto to wrap slices.  Romaine will make a great ceasar salad with Eatwell's great pastured chicken eggs.  If the summer squashes are large, I'll stuff them.  If not, some koftas might be made up and frozen for future dinners.  The peppers will be roasted if they are bells, if not, the banana peppers make wonderful sandwiches or burittos with scrambled eggs.  The fennel is great eaten just as is, or sliced thin with oranges and onions in a fresh salad.  There are so many things to make with all this great stuff!
