CSA week 8
This is the first week since the beginning of May that we did not get any lettuce in our weekly batch of produce. Yay! I'm all for salad but we have had to give some of the lettuce away because it is too much for us. This week we got eggplant (um, that's all Max), fennel, some tomatoes (which are presumably safe), fresh garlic, half a head of cabbage (ick), pickling cucumbers, more green beans, and of course, a dozen eggs.
For dinner I made some tomato and fennel bruchetta (minus the shallots, for Max). The flavor is subtle, first you taste the tomatoes and then this anise flavor follows. It's good. We'll definitely make it again next week if we get more fennel.
