Fourth Box of Vegetables

At top and moving clockwise: lettuce, tomatoes, eggs, beets, dill, potatoes, yellow squash, green beans, cherry tomatoes, onions, eggplant, cucumber.

Photo of the bounty and variety of my fourth box of the growing season. And here is what I made with it:

Bacon [vegan version], lettuce and tomato sandwich. The fixings are so big you can hardly see the bread underneath!
Cucumber soup, with dill.

Son, Mike, loves this soup. If I want any, I have to sip it before he knows it is ready to eat. He can down a quart of soup in about 30 minutes.

Here are the various beets that went into the salad…..

ā€¦.that I apparently deleted the photo of. But the salad was made of red potatoes, green beans, beets, eggs and an Italian type dressing. And it was delicious.

Summer squash casserole. This is a comfort food in my household. If we get squash and I do not make this dish, I am asked where it is…

ā€¦.and that makes sense, as in addition to the squash, this dish has cheese, eggs, bread crumbs, onion, garlic, and some typical seasonings [salt, pepper, oregano, marjoram, thyme.] For a vegetarian, this is a complete meal.

Eggplant parmesan: with the CSA eggplant and marinara sauce made from the tomatoes. And cheese is Not parmesan, but shredded cheddar.

Because that is what I had in the house….and that is how we cook around here.

Just a head’s up to new readers–the reason that QuakerStylist bogs about community supported agriculture is because the food is grown locally and organically [a win for the environment] and is therefore more nutritious [a win for those eating the food prepared from these vegetables and eggs.]

These foods were eaten by that Stylish Quaker herself, her resident son and members of the Quaker Church that they attend.


    1. I bet that was not only because you and Dear Husband had a great entourage, but also because there was actual Parmesan on your eggplant. šŸ˜‰


  1. Would you give me the recipe for the summer squash casserole? That looks so good.
    All of your other dishes look delicious, also!
