Fresh From the Farm: My Big Fat CSA Haul


I was absolutely blown away by my overflowing CSA box this week. So much great stuff to use!

The heirloom tomato, grape tomatoes and a red tomato went into a tomato and blue cheese salad (more on that later this week). Another tomato went into a summertime favorite for the kids and I: lemony tomato pasta . . . again, more later this week. I have big plans for pestos — a basil one and a kale one that I am experimenting with.

Now, off to roast radishes, beets and more. As for the corn? It has a date with the grill … mmmm.

Any suggestions for summer turnips? I’ve never had them before.
