CSA Week 8/22

Picked up this week's CSA today, and it was another pretty impressive haul. We got:

  • 3 heads of lettuce
  • 1 massive cucumber, 1 curvy cucumber
  • 1 large yellow squash
  • 2 large zucchini
  • 2 bunches of broccoli
  • 1 large kohlrabi
  • 3 wimpy carrots
  • 10 leaves of kale
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 eggplant
  • 3 turnips
Their featured recipe was for the eggplant, but it was just plain fried eggplant. When trying to think of what to make for dinner with our haul, focusing on the eggplant specifically, there was fried or roasted eggplant, eggplant parmigiana... I wound up going with Ratatouille -- probably at least partly inspired by having watched the movie last week (our first Netflix selection!).

It turned out pretty good, and I have to say it was a lot easier to make then I expected. I mean, with all the different veggies involved, I figured the prep-time would be a pain, but really it was just a matter of chopping it all up & throwing it in the pan for awhile. Easy! And actually a nice filling meal, despite being vegetarian...
