CSA Week 21: Tomatoes, Asian Greens, Sweet Peppers, Mesclun Mix, Eggplant, Lettuce, Basil

No week 20 because I was in Minnesota, but here’s week 21! Summer vegetables are still going strong. I’ve been marinating the eggplants (peeled and sliced) in red wine vinegar, garlic, basil, and olive oil. After a few days, they make a delicious topping for baguettes.

CSA Week 19: Tomatoes, Lacinato Kale, Sweet Peppers, Eggplant, Lettuce, Celery Leaf, Torpedo Onions, Serrano Peppers

It just occurred to me why we call them EGGplants.

The Minnesota State Fair makes everyone Freak Out about cheesecurds.



My sister went back to college in California and bragged about having In-n-Out, so I made my own cheeseburgers and fries at home. (The key is to grind your own meat and keep the patties thin. The key is American cheese! Iceberg lettuce! The sauce!)
