I had some overripe bananas on my hands, so tried out a new recipe from BigOven.com.
Banana Crumb Muffins
Very yummy. However, it was an extremely light, tender muffin--so much so that it crumbled a bit when I spread some very soft butter on it. Probably telling me I really don't need more butter in my life.
Back to CSA Week 3 ReportI pick up my CSA deliveries on Thursday, and my daughter announced she wanted to make pasta that night. We decided on spaghetti. She cooked the pasta and then we both did our own doctoring. I sauteed up a CSA zucchini with a minced clove of garlic in olive oil, threw in some chopped tomatoes, then added the pasta into the skillet with salt and pepper, and cooked the whole thing until the zucchini and tomatoes cooked down just a bit into more of a sauce. Put it in a bowl and added shredded parmesan. Yum.
I made homemade Ceasar dressing, too--store-bought is way too salty for me. I have one of those funky bottles that has the recipes on the side with lines drawn in for the amounts. The Ceasar salad dressing using that recipe is nice. Using fresh lemons makes a big difference, too--bright and fresh, not sour.
Great Jam Tragedy.
I used this recipe for "Soft Dinner Rolls" from BigOven. They were tasty, but spread out a little bit more than I was expecting. I probably could've left them in another couple of minutes to get even more brown on top, but we were hungry, and they were done even if not pretty.
CSA Week 3 reportUsed: Chinese cabbage, Romaine, bok choy, 1 zucchini. Remaining: 3 beets, 1 zucchini, 1 yellow squash, beet greens, carrots, bok choy.
CSA Week 4 Pick-up:2 zucchini
1 yellow squash
1 green pepper
3 beets/beet greens
3 kohlrabi (finally, kohlrabi! I've been looking at recipes since I started this--have a great idea for what I'll be making with these this week.)
I think zucchini bread is in my immediate future.
By the way--I've been playing with some free online photo editors. Many of the photos on this blog were edited with picmonkey. Check out a collage of Food Friday photos!
