CSA Pickup: September 17, 2011

The cooler weather sure did hit fast here in Connecticut. I feel like it was just in the high 80s and now we are in the 60s. While I do enjoy a crisp Autumn morning, this time of year also means the harvests will be coming to an end soon. Our CSA runs till the very beginning of November so we have a few weeks left, but the goodies are already dwindling. I went from a crazy amount of food two weeks ago which included tomatoes, zucchini, squash, cucumbers, lettuce, etc. to just a basketful of veggies.

Here is this weekend's loot. Potatoes, acorn squash, salad  mix, carrots, red & yellow bell peppers, eggplant and kale. Last night I made sausage and peppers so those are all gone now. I will be making some mashed potatoes at some point for my hubby, who complains that I don't make them enough. And I think I will try making some kale chips again. I tried once last season and was not all that thrilled. But they are so nutrient dense and good for you that I figured it was worth another shot.

I have never cooked acorn squash before so I will have to find something yummy to make with these. Do you have any acorn squash recipes that you can share with me?


  1. I love Acorn Squash! You can cut it in half, scoop out the seeds, rub with a bit of olive oil, add a dab of butter, add a touch of salt, and bake until tender. It makes a nice desert or snack, too. You can rub with butter and top with brown sugar and a touch of cinnamon then bake.

  2. I am a huge veggie lover, so I hate it when winter comes around and the amount of fresh produce dwindles down. Looks like you still got a nice little haul though.

  3. Looks good! I almost signed up for a CSA this year. Maybe next year.

  4. I almost signed up for one once, but my family is so picky!

  5. Those peppers look fantastic and we love mashed potatoes. I've never cooked with eggplant though.

  6. oh fresh vegetables yummy
    no recipes to share I don't think I ever cooked with that ever either
