Fall 2014 Week 1 (Sept 30th)

Welcome to the Autumn season, everyone. I hope everyone got to their drop-off.

I’m not sure I have the list correct, but the pictures should illustrate what you have. While these peppers can go into most things you cook (eggs, stir fries, soups), you might be getting a few too many of them. You can dice them and freeze them in small ziplocs — then add them to things as the cooler months wear on. I diced a bunch of tomatoes tonight, shredded some basil, and tossed those with some canned artichoke quarters and some mozzarella cubes. That salad will keep in the fridge for a day or so (cut out the cheese to get an extra day or so). The candystripe beet won’t stain your cutting board, but the standard beets make a nice salad tossed with mandarin orange slices.

(Oh, and I put a couple of my favorite cookbooks in the pics to change up the backdrop.)
