Week 10

Week 10's haul was probably the biggest one yet. I used my mad photography skills to take three regular pictures of the vegetables, put them together, and make one giant picture. See?

I know. My photographic talent knows no bounds. Here's the stuff from a less mutated angle:

The final count looks something like this:

2 bunches of green onions
2 bags of carrots
1 bag of tomatoes (regular and cherry sized)
3 green peppers
2 heads of broccoli
2 purple cabbage
6 yellow squash
2 zucchini
6 cucumbers
1 light green squash
2 giant white onions
2 purple onions
2 normal sized white onions
2 bags of lettuce

Lots of good stuff has been coming out of my kitchen this week. I know I've already told you about roasted carrots twice, but they really are that good:

This batch was drizzled with olive oil, tossed with dill, onion, and garlic, and baked at 450 degrees for 45ish minutes. Better than potato chips you guys--I mean that.

This pasta was a total hit:

I made a simple tomato sauce (chopped tomatoes, olive oil, salt and pepper), sauteed in some green onion and yellow squash and hoo boy we had ourselves a meal!

Last night I made black bean burritos (black beans, corn, onion, green onion, yellow squash, garlic, cumin, and chilli powder all cooked up and mushed together), with a side of cole slaw (purple cabbage, carrots, green peppers, onions, garlic, green onions, and a bottle of cole slaw dressing from the store).

Jared tried it:

  1. thank you for sharing this summer....I need to try the carrot recipe fo' shizzle.

  2. I would suggest making Rotkohl with the cabbage as well. It has bacon bits, so you can't go wrong.

  3. You may have cracked me on the carrot recipe too. As long as you accept freak out phone calls asking for details.

    J-rod has moves!

  4. love jared's interpretive dance:)
