CSA Week 8

This week's CSA bag contained the following:

small bag of green beans
2 roma tomatoes
large bag of cherry tomatoes
green bell pepper
1 small acorn squash
1 small butternut squash
joi choi (not pictured, I forgot it)

I also did a poor job of updating how I used last week's CSA bag. Last Friday night I made Talapia with collards and apples and a mash of turnips and fingerling potatoes and tomato and avocado salad. I forgot to take pictures.

Today, I made the stuffing for Thanksgiving tomorrow, and used both last week's and this week's scallions.

I still have radishes, the winter squash, the green bell pepper from last week's delivery.

Tomorrow, I will use the kale and collards and last week's and this week's radishes. I will probably freeze the green beans and put them with the frozen green beans from 2 weeks ago.

This weekend I am making soup with leftover turkey and veggies. I will include the joi choi in that soup. I will use the roma tomatoes on turkey sandwiches this weekend. I am not sure what I will do with the cherry tomatoes yet, maybe a relish or chutney that I can freeze.

Tomorrow, I will post our Thanksgiving supper.
