Farm Fresh

basil, cabbage, carrots, corn, gourmet greens, lettuce, onions, peppers, potatoes, tomatoes, watermelon

What’s for Dinner?

My bin this week held the very best of late summer. It held all that September means to me…gorgeous ears of sweet corn; more piles of sweet peppers, tomatoes, and oh-so-fragrant basil, and a surprise golden Oregon watermelon. Plus some tastes that will be with us through the fall and winter with the onion varieties and Napa cabbage. Here we go…I’d say with this (weighty) abundance, I’ve got my work cut out for me this week. And the great thing is, it doesn’t feel a bit like work.
