Positively Porktastic

This weekend, I decided it was time to cook my ham.  I bought a smoked fully cooked ham right before Easter but ended up storing it in the freezer instead of cooking it.  This was the time to cook it.  I was craving a semi-traditional Southern Sunday dinner, we were having a friend over, and […]

Menu Planning

My CSA has ended, so now it’s back to the grocery store for food.  Initially, I was cooking the same way I had during the CSA months, just making a meal out of whatever yummies were on hand.  Well you know what happens when your CSA has ended and you don’t go grocery shopping???  You […]

What’s for Dinner – Succotash with Okra

So, after leaving the CSA with corn, okra, tomatoes, and peppers, I decided to whip up a modified succotash. I used 4 okra pods, 1 ear of corn, one sweet pepper, and 3 orange tomatoes.  Sliced the okra and sauteed it in olive oil.  Added the corn (kernels cut from the cob) chopped pepper and […]

CSA – Week 10?

Today’s CSA will be providing potatoes, tomatoes, corn, okra, garlic, basil, sweet and hot peppers, and ground cherries. Note that this is the millionth week I’ve gotten potatoes and I have at least 10 potatoes just sitting on my counter. *Sigh* Any ideas on what I can do with the okra?  I’d rather not fry […]

What’s For Dinner

CSA – 1st Pick-up

My CSA pickup last night was a bust, Bust, BUST.  A total waste of time.  I ended up with two basil plants, two tomato seedlings, one oregano plant, and a handful of chives.  Did I tell you that I bought herb plants 2 weeks ago? Yeah, a BUST!

Community Supported Agriculture

This is the first week of my CSA.  For those of you unfamiliar, a CSA is effectively stock in a farm’s growing season.  You purchase the stock upfront and during the growing season, you and other shareholders reap the rewards of the harvest.  You get whatever they grow — not like the grocery store where you […]

What’s for Dinner?

Ingredients on hand: Frozen scallops, salmon, and chicken tenders Spaghetti squash 1 cubanelle pepper apples (fuji and golden delicious) feta cheese kalamata olives sugar snap peas […]
