You may have noticed a break in the “Crate full of Veggies” posts recently. It all started with vacation which interrupted two weeks of my CSA. The week I got back I was busy freezing, dehydrating, baking, and eating my CSA share, but failed to share.  Largely this is due to the fact I have started repeating recipes (sometimes creativity escapes me). I also have been preserving more as the weather heats up. About the last thing I will do in this heat is turn on my oven or stove top. That means I freeze the green beans, store the potatoes, and dehydrate the zucchini, and settle on cereal (or ice cream) for dinner.

Here are some of my favorite recipes I have made through out the summer months with my local produce. For all of my “Crate full of Veggies” posts, click here. And fear not, with Eden now sleeping 11 hours at night and taking 2 long naps during the day, there is room in my life for a little more creativity and next week I will bring you some new, fresh, seasonal recipes.
