Tonight was cheese and garlic sausage sauteed with garlic and green pepper olive oil with fresh tomato sauce and rice, with a side cucumber and heirloom tomato salad.
This week's CSA: heirloom tomatoes, cherry and sungold tomatoes, Swiss Chard, Boston lettuce, beets, zucchini, summer squash, green peppers, carrots, and eggs. (I'm missing something.)
Tonight was pizza. I made the dough this morning, let it rise, portioned it, and then put it in the fridge until dinner time. I made three pizzas all with my garlic olive oil and fresh mozzarella, and then 1) cherry tomatoes and prosciutto, 2) sliced beefsteak tomatoes and leftover garlic and cheese sausage, and 3) shredded mozz and sausage (my son doesn't like tomatoes, although he loves sauce and ketchup).
I still have three pieces of dough left, so I guess we're having pizza tomorrow, too :-) (Or maybe I'll make garlic cheese breadsticks because I still have a lot of veggies to use.)
We had chicken skewers & a salad of Brandywine tomato slices, fresh mozzarella cheese and fresh basil sprinkled with balsamic vinegar... light and delicious! Mostly a Costco meal except for the tomato which was Cootie-grown...
I made a slow-simmered tomato sauce yesterday, and I planned to make eggplant/chicken parmesan (because I only got one eggplant in the CSA and it's not big enough for all three of us), and then my husband got called into work. So I made spaghetti for my son and me, and I'll make the parmesan tonight.
TripleGemini, can you enlighten me as to what CSA means? You've mentioned it in several posts. Is it a type of farmer's market?
Last night's dinner for the menfolk was farfalle (bowtie) pasta in an alfredo sauce tossed with broccoli, carrots, water chestnuts and snow peas ( the kind of frozen veggies you get in a steamable bag). It looked good. Tonight, on a lighter note, hubby and I will be eating baked tilapia and a garden salad. I'm down 49 pounds as of today.

Community Supported Agriculture
For over 25 years, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) has become a popular way for consumers to buy local, seasonal food directly from a farmer.
Here are the basics: a farmer offers a certain number of "shares" to the public. Typically the share consists of a box of vegetables, but other farm products may be included. Interested consumers purchase a share (aka a "membership" or a "subscription") and in return receive a box (bag, basket) of seasonal produce each week throughout the farming season.
