We did a lot of entertaining this weekend. Since the CSA pick up this week included a lot of tomatoes, our meals did as well. We used them sliced on sandwiches and salads, diced in Meatos with fresh jalapeno peppers in place of the canned ones the recipe called for, chunked in white bean soup (its been chilly!) and pureed in sauce. Zucchini bread made another appearance on our menu because there was an abundance of zucchini in our pick up as well.
In some ways eating foods in season may seem redundant but at the same time it gives you something to look forward to. As the season gradually changes, the produce changes along with it. Besides, with each influx of a particular veggie you have the opportunity to get really good at using it before moving on to the next veggie. Of course the challenge is to remember all your brilliant ideas from one year to the next.
