The Daily EO: August 8th, 2012

After a long drought – being on the road – I finally got a new CSA share this week.  Every Sunday we get an e-mail letting us know this week’s share and I was standing on the West Coast having a great time yet also jealous that I wasn’t home to enjoy the bounty.

  • sweet corn
  • baby New Potatoes
  • yellow tomatoes
  • baby beets with tops
  • baby carrots
  • green onions
  • purple beans
  • zucchinis

In the evening we were invited to a friend’s house who also got the same CSA and we ate barbeque grilled pizza with yellow tomatoes, japanese eggplant with purple beans, butter chicken, basmasti rice and corn on the cob.  Muskoka corn!  I didn’t even know it existed.

I’d also like to say out loud something that I’ve know for a while.  The bags of “baby carrots” you buy in the grocery store, are not truly sweet yummy baby carrots (GASP!)  They are large carrots chopped into pieces and then “sanded” to peel and the round the edges.  I buy them yes, but I just wanted the world to know that I know.  I’m watching you.
