We’ve seen the summer bounty flourish in the past two weeks of Dension Farm CSA shares. From the first showings of tomatoes, eggplant potatoes, onions and corn (!!!!) to the melons; cantaloupe to watermelon (!!!!). This week really inspires me to be creative and try my hand at a few new-to-me dishes.
1) Ratatouille. Our eggplant is screaming “SUMMER STEW ME!” The volumne is so high that it will be cooking into submission this weekend.
2) Succotash. I’m a huge fan of Smitten Kitchen blog and I will be adapting (allergy friendly holla!) her newest post, Succotash with bacon (yum).
The hope is that both of these recipes will be very Miles-friendly as he loves to pick up handful of mushy veggies and stuff them into his mouth. Both recipes should be fitting the bill. I will keep y’all posted. Until then, enjoy some photographs…
