Dear Weekly CSA Members - 

Liz and family are on vacation this week, so I have the honor to tell you about your share this week.  

By now you are all familiar with fresh vegetables and how to cook them.  

Cherry Tomatoes - A member gave me a good chuckle recently with her story of eating the whole quart of cherry tomatoes while intending to cook with a few.  They are addicting!  These would be fabulous simply cooked and added to pasta.  https://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/pasta-with-15-minute-burst-cherry-tomato-sauce-56390060

Cucumbers - Try Cucumber Tomato Salad.  These cucumbers should be peeled. https://www.dinneratthezoo.com/cucumber-tomato-salad/

Corn and Cabbage - I love sweet cabbage cooked on top of the stove in a small amount of water.  One of my favorite recipes is one my mother made when we were kids.  After washing and removing the cabbage core, rough chop the cabbage.  Remove corn kernels from the cob by slicing (away from you) along the cob.  Cook cabbage until tender.  Salt and pepper well.  Add corn and a touch of cream or milk, and cook briefly until just tender, about 1 minute. https://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/sausage-with-cabbage-corn-saut-0

Cabbage is also fabulous on the grill or roasted in the oven.  https://withfoodandlove.com/cabbage-wedges-with-corn-a-spicy-lime-vinaigrette/

Potatoes - Roasted or boiled, these potatoes are terrific.  As with most fresh food, they will cook more quickly than store-purchased potatoes, so take care not to over cook them.  Try this warm potato salad, or just cook, butter and eat! https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/228116/warm-dijon-potato-salad/

Green Peppers - stuffed peppers are terrific, but a simpler recipe is just to slide, remove the seeds, coat in olive oil, salt and pepper to taste and cook with any other vegetables in a 400 degree oven for 10 minutes or until tender.  Add onions, potatoes, cabbage, tomatoes or anything for a roasted vegetable medley.  

Eggplant - Our favorite way to cook eggplant is to make mini pizza's.  But there are many great eggplant recipes.  Here are 51 ways to ensure you find one you like! https://www.epicurious.com/recipes-menus/16-reasons-we-love-eggplant-gallery

Protein Shares 

This week, you'll enjoy: Rump Roast, Stew Beef and Pork Bratwurst

Rump Roast - In the oven or, my preference, the slow cooker with https://www.365daysofcrockpot.com/slow-cooker-3-ingredient-rump-roast/

Beef Stew - This meat really does need to be cooked slowly.  https://cooking.nytimes.com/recipes/4735-old-fashioned-beef-stew

Pork Brats - Our family's favorite, this tender delicious meat is great on the grill or in the pan.  Add mustard, roasted peppers and onions, or any side dishes (corn and cabbage!) and your family will love you.  https://saltpepperskillet.com/recipes/bratwurst/

Enjoy your week!
