CSA pickup July 25, 2012

Lee is in the biotech as I write this, packing up this week's CSA.  We're hoping for the rain that they are saying we'll get tonight.  If it does come it will be perfect timing, as none of your shares were harvested in the mud, but all of the growers desperately need the rain.

Tonight before you go to bed, please do a little rain dance for our Manitoba farmers!

The new and exciting item in this week's CSA are the patty pan squash.  They come in both yellow and green, look like little space ships and taste just like young zucchini.

To prepare, simply wash, trim off the stem end, and cook as you would zucchini.

You can toss them with olive oil, garlic salt and pepper and roast in the oven until soft and slightly brown.

You can grill them on the bbq until soft with caramelized bits, quarter and pan fry, or cut in half and broil until browned.

I like to use them with my grilled zucchini or patty pan squash and cherry tomatoes recipe.  That's what I'll be making with my patty pans tonight!
