This latest CSA basket from Roots and Shoots Farm went cottaging in the Muskokas!
Well not all of it. But most of it. The beans, potatoes, onion, cabbage and some of the zucchinis.
I used the cucumber and some of the onion for a Food Day Canada Greek Salad.
The carrots and most of the fennel were roasted and eaten like sweet candy.
The garlic just tucked in here and there throughout the past two weeks.
I am about to pick up my next CSA basket in minutes. I bet it will be just as luscious and good.
Take a tour through my CSA garden and you can also see some of the dishes we made in the past two weeks. I am loving summer. What are you cooking up?
|Yellow, purple and green beans.|
|One pound of potatoes.|
|White and Purple Onions.|
|Zucchini and Summer Squash.|
|Greek Salad using the cucumbers and spring onion from the CSA basket. I also bought Roots and Shoots Farm's tomatoes at the Ottawa Farmers' Market Westboro. The beautiful fresh feta is from Milkhouse Farm and Dairy. They have wonderful artisan sheep cheeses. And they are local.|
|More coleslaw! A cabbage head goes a long way. The zucchinis I didn't use for a special summer squash salad went into a zucchini dish with also included tomatoes and garlic. Zippy. More great cottage flavours.|
|Of course the quintessential cottage food is hash browns. The sizzle is just about to come up in this pan as the potatoes and spring onion hit the stove with a big slop of butter and steak spices. The final result had many tasty brown bits.|
