I talk about food a lot. And other stuff.

But mostly food.

Thank you, lovely readers, for your ideas about what to do with my bountiful CSA.  Tonight, I made ratatouille.  And not just any ratatouille, but this ratatouille, which looks just like this one.

  Awesome.  Beautiful.  My new favorite thing.  And the kids loved to help.

Today's CSA

I'm doing this now because I've skipped many deliveries and have Neglectful Blogger Guilt about it.

Here's what I got in my CSA box today:

Carrots, beets, Thai basil, sesame greens*, corn (6), little tomatoes (bonus! Not on the list!), butterscotch melon, eggplant*, Italian frying peppers, tomatillos*, sweet Spanish onions, cauliflower, Italian garlic, many squashes, cucumbers, gold potatoes.

Otter Creek Summer Cheddar, Castle Rock Colby, Butler Farms Camembert


*What do I do with this!?! I've never had Sesame Greens, tomatillos or eggplant before (be quiet, foodies). What's your favorite way to prepare them?

Dinner: a fairy tale

I was sad because my grill was out of gas.

Then I slathered herbs and butter on my steak and put it under the broiler (it's like upside-down grilling! Inside!) and I was happier.

The end.
