As mentioned previously, I’m lucky to have a CSA-like food coop that delivers produce to the neighborhood every other week. Yesterday, I picked up the bounty and have a lot of great items to use … some of my favorite items is the huge number of heirloom tomatoes, the glossy eggplant, and Vidalia onions.
I’m on a restricted diet right now due to some recent surgery so some items have been shared with co-workers, like the lettuce, apples, and the bananas, but the bananas are a personal preference issue.
What to make with the remaining items? I think the plums and peaches may be incorporated into a desert that I need to bring a friend on Monday. The tomatoes will be turned into a salad with some fresh mozzarella and perhaps a sauce (again due to the limited diet). The eggplant and peppers may be roasted and served with some goat cheese … would love to do a pasta, but that is not allowed quite yet. Hmm … lots of options to consider!
