What’s for Dinner?

Holey Moley! I am not easily impressed (overwhelmed) by veggie volume, but my pick-up this week definitely inspired a nervous chuckle.  My “summer CSA”, Sauvie Island Organics (SIO), launched its season last week. People often ask me “But what do you do with all of those veggies?!?” I think this is the vision that intimidates them, just a bit. For me, the answer is in a (flexible) plan. I do love to map it all out, at the beginning of my veggie week. Once I see on paper that, yes indeed, that gargantuan mound of produce piled high upon my table has a place at each night’s dinner, I breathe a sigh of relief. And get cooking, one healthy, fabulous meal at a time!
