Summer CSA – Fruits and Veggies, Week 3

Ugh.

In atrocious news, I’ve herniated two discs in my back, and I’m in astronomical amounts of pain. It got so bad I had Rob take me to the ER in a desperate attempt to get some relief and figure out what was wrong. On the positive side, I’ve got some decent pain pills and I start physical therapy Monday. On the negative side, I’m still in crazy amounts of pain, and I’m worried that I might have to have back surgery. 🙁 Not the best news for the summer, but I’m trying to stay as positive as I can.

With all that excitement I haven’t spent much time in the kitchen. So with this week’s fruits and veggies, we’ve got a very full fridge, and I need to do some meal planning! This week we received:

Tagge Famous Fruit CSA Week 3

  • Two ears of corn! I love it when corn season begins
  • Two heads of lettuce
  • Two different types of green onions
  • one head of garlic
  • one cute little green pepper
  • one huge beet
  • three summer squash
  • a bunch of carrots
  • four apricots
  • a pound and a half of cherries
  • a bunch of green beans

This evening I made a nice chicken pot pie, and that used up a bit of the veggies, but we’ve still got enough around here to feed an army. We still have quite a few cherries left over from last week, so I think I’ll make a cherry tart tomorrow and use those up before they get too ripe.

Have a great week, and think some healing thoughts my way, please!
