Getting back on schedule, you’re getting TWO csa box posts this week. Today’s new visitors include persimmons (which I’ve wanted to cook ever since seeing a huge persimmon tree at a friend’s house) and a HUGE head of cabbage. I’m not sure what was in the water, but the veggies are all BIG this week. Massive! The picture doesn’t even do justice to that gigantic sweet potato. More to love, right? And now down to business…
Bok choy, lettuce, green beans, zucchini, cabbage, poblano peppers, bell peppers, eggplant, onion, persimmons, Granny Smith apples
This week’s box is extra important because of a Halloween brunch we’re hosting tomorrow morning. Zucchini bread? Persimmon pudding? Something with sweet potatoes? Apple galette, pancake or tart? Jalapeno (psh jalapeno, how about POBLANO!?!?) and cheddar scones? All of these things are loosely on the menu. Firming up a menu from that long list is up NEXT in my day. I’m also toying with the idea of broiled grapefruit, a sausage stratta, pink pancakes, savory brioche pudding and LORD, what else? Lots of mimosas and a lime/mint fruit salad. We’ve got 19 people coming to our humble abode tomorrow and I better be ready to feed and delight.
