August 5th Market & CSA Pick-up # 12

We are so excited about Fall!  We have some great plans!  We will have small pumpkins and other winter squashes, sweet potatoes, broccoli, and brussel sprouts!

brussel sprouts

These are beautiful brussel sprouts that we started in our green house.  They are going in the ground today!  I love summer food, but thinking about hearty fall meals makes me so happy!

This week our Farm Share (CSA) Members will receive green beans, leeks, sun jewel melon, field greens, shishitos,  poblanos, and egg plants.

Monday:  Turkey  Enchilada Stuffed Poblano Rellenos

This is the first year Matt has grown poblanos.  These are mild peppers with an earthy flavor.  They have thick wall like a bell pepper and are excellent for roasting or stuffing.  I have roasted these peppers and they are delicious!


I am so excited about these peppers, I found the perfect recipe and I can’t wait to eat it!  I love stuffed peppers and the taste of the poblano makes it awesome!

This is a low calorie, low fat dish that is sure to please!  If you don’t want to make your own enchilada sauce, you can cheat and buy the can.  I have done that before, I do work two jobs and have a family!

Tuesday: Little Meat Loafs, Green Beans, and Potatoes Sheet Pan Dinner

I have to admit, I love a sheet pan dinner and I love meatloaf. This recipe is so easy, I make it on Sundays and use it prep my lunches for the week.

But as a weeknight dinner it is awesome!  For my lunches I use brown rice, it is just easier to pack and eat.

Wednesday:  Julia Child’s Egg Plant Pizza

August 15th is Julia Child would be 115 years old if she was still alive!  I remember watching her as a child and was so amazed by her cooking and her laughter.  I love that woman.

This is an all time favorite recipe that everyone will love!

Thursday:  Parmesan Chicken with Field Green Salad

This is such a simple recipe and is oh so good, The salad is easy to prepare. While the chicken is cooking, make the lemon vinaigrette in the recipe and toss.  It is plated beautifully and is so good.  IF you aren’t in to pounding chicken breasts, a good hack is to slice the chicken breast in half long ways to make it super thin.

Friday:  Thai Ginger Grilled Pork Bowl

I won’t lie, you have to plan ahead with this one, there is marinating involved, but it is so worth it!  You will use your shishito peppers in this recipe and it is so good!  The great thing is you can use your grill for the shishitos and the meat!

I love rice bowls and will usually use brown rice.  I have also used cous cous and quinoa to substitute for the rice and it is delicious!
