What’s for Dinner?

I learned the hard way that this week was no ordinary CSA delivery. Our family’s designated veggie-picker-upper (my hubby!) got sidetracked, busy, confused, whatever, and forgot his duty! Yikes – I scrambled and begged, and thanks to the good folks at Sauvie Island Organics, was able to pick them up at a nearby friendly restaurant. A big, burly chef handed me my entire plastic crate of veggies. In one giant bin, all at once…I nearly collapsed. I tried to play it cool, somehow get out the door on my own, and hobble down the streets of downtown, genuinely sweating by the time I reached my car. It held the very best of late summer, as well as a taste of fall. It held all that September means to me…the last gorgeous ears of sweet corn; more piles of sweet peppers, tomatoes, and eggplant; a giant bundle of oh-so-fragrant dill; some new fall-ish surprises from the chicory family. Plus a lot more, including kohlrabi! 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.
