CSA Box: August 4

Read more about why I love CSA and locally–grown fruits and veggies here.

This week’s box:


  • microgreens
  • cherry tomatoes
  • blueberry jam
  • 1 cucumber
  • 3 eggplants
  • 4 red potatoes
  • mixed fresh herbs
  • okra
  • 2 zucchini

A la carte items:


  • the best fresh chevre I’ve ever had in my life
  • 3 peaches
  • basil
  • brown jasmine rice

My total was $41. Not bad for so much freshness.

Here’s what my meal plan looks like this week:

  • Tuesday: eggplant parmesan
  • Wednesday: leftover eggplant parmesan + fried okra
  • Thursday: sauteed zucchini + chickpeas over rice
  • Friday: wine & cheese

I’m planning to make this for lunches to use up the tomatoes and cucumber and maybe a little of this over the weekend if we decide to grill something. And the blueberry jam is already a favorite for biscuits in the morning or with a little vanilla ice cream after dinner.

Any favorite end-of-summer fruits or veggies?
