The above picture was my brunch this morning after a 30 mile ride with Peggy. Eggs from the girls, plus a spectacular avocado from our Frog Hollow Farms CSA, and a wonderfully ripe tomato from our Mariquita Farms CSA. A little salt, the newspaper and I was on my way to recovery.
Do you have a surplus of tomatoes from recent boxes (Annie, I am looking at you!)? Check out these recipes from Foodily on how to use tomatoes, including soups, roasted tomatoes, and my favorite, fresh Bloody Marys.
The highlight of last week’s menu was the Baked Lebanese Kibbe on Wednesday. I also made a fresh hummus, and on Thursday we had leftovers along with homemade pita on the BBQ. The family gave this dinner a double-thumbs up.
In addition to Heirloom Tomatoes, our box from Mariquita Farms contained Pippin Apples, San Marzano Tomatoes, Walla Walla Onions, Turnip Greens, Broccoli Romanesco, Basil, and Lettuce.
