Ah here we are again on a lovely Thursday, ready to check out the THURSDAY STASH. I got back to Oakland after a great vacation just in time to pick up my latest CSA box.
I was so extremely excited when I opened the box and unwrapped these goodies. It might be the most colorful box I’ve gotten this year, what with the rich purple, shades of red and orange, and stripey greens. A vegetable rainbow!
How these all fit into my fridge I will never know… I got a little bit creative with my organizing. We’ve got: 3 white onions, 2 baby watermelons, a basket of Santa Rosa plums, a basket of cherry tomatoes, 3 full size heirloom tomatoes, 4 flamingo peppers, and 3 Armenian cucumbers. Whew.
And I’m so excited to share what I did with some of those tomatoes, peppers, and a baby watermelon tonight… Soon enough, soon enough.
Anybody have some good ideas for using up those Armenian Cucumbers?? I’ve never seen this kind of cucumber before, although I’m assuming it tastes much like the ones I’m used to? They are very long, not very stiff, and (as you can see) have ridges that create dark and light green stripes. I’m excited to do something with them.
