Let me first get this out of the way - it is hotter than a motherfather around here and it makes it very hard to get anything done. I've got all this beautiful food and not a lot of energy to do anything with it (well except that amazing looking focaccia, we mustered up the strength to eat that up straight away). I have plans for everything - just hope for promised return to cooler weather. We are doing a repeat of the tomato and goat cheese salad (again) - that, I can handle. I've come across some really fantastic looking tomato recipes but right now we are really happy just having this one in rotation. This week's share included:
summer squash (I chose zucchini because we are hours away from a yellow squash onslaught in the garden)
cucumbers (love those lemon cucumbers!)
tomato basil focaccia bread
This afternoon I am staying indoors with the AC on, trying to get some work done as well as researching washing machines (ours died). Hal and I cooled off a bit this afternoon with this lovely concoction - espresso blended with ice and chocolate soy milk - yum.
But I'm not kidding about the heat - I snapped this yesterday driving home from the CSA pick up (don't worry, I pulled over...)
I love summer but I am totally ready for fall!
