How I’m Using My CSA Box {Week of 7.11-7.18}

This week we got all kinds of summer deliciousness in our CSA box from Abundant Harvest Organics:

  • Corn
  • Zucchini and Summer Squash
  • Green Beans
  • Lettuce
  • Tomatoes
  • Rosemary
  • Pluots (hybrid of a plum and apricot)
  • Peaches
  • Watermelon

Corn and Rosemary: Corn is best eaten as soon after it’s harvested as possible, so tonight we’ll be grilling the corn, along with using the rosemary for Grilled Rosemary Buttermilk Chicken.

Zucchini and Tomatoes: For the zucchini and tomatoes,  I’m planning on making one of my favorites, Sausage Zucchini Bake. There was also a handful of cherry tomatoes in our box, but Charlotte ate those right up already as a mid-morning snack!

Watermelon: We usually have no problem polishing off a watermelon once it’s cut up, but if I don’t think we’ll eat it all before it goes bad, I’ll freeze some and save it for Watermelon Milkshakes (recipe adapted from

In a blender, blend the following:

  • 3 cups frozen watermelon chunks
  • 2 cup milk
  • 1-2 Tablespoons honey

Peaches and Pluots: We will probably just enjoy these as is, or I might use the pluots to make my favorite Plum Upside-Down Cake.
