Week 21 - Over the Rainbow

Unpacking the box this week, all of the colors were so beautiful.  From the purples of the carrots and beans, to the blueish kale; from the greens of the lettuce and basil, to the yellows of the grapefruits and lemon cucumbers; from the oranges of the tomato and cantaloupe, to the red strawberries and tomatoes.  There is a part of eating that is very visual, and with produce this beautiful, I know that we'll be gobbling up everything in the box this week.  You could say that we're 'over the moon' about our CSA box, but perhaps this week you should consider us 'over the rainbow.'

In the box this week
(top) lettuce, basil, kale
(bottom) lemon cucumbers, carrots, purple beans, tomatoes, grapefruit, cantaloupe, grape tomatoes, strawberries

Meal plan for the week
Tuesday: breakfast for dinner with Carrot muffins, sliced Cantaloupe
Wednesday: Thai steak skewers with Lemon Cucumber salad and lime frozen yogurt for dessert (using homemade yogurt)
Thursday: pasta with tricolor checca (using Tomatoes and Basil)

My mouth is already watering as I am looking at these recipes.  Summer is wonderful for so many reasons, but summer eating may just be the best part!
This week's title is inspired by the song of the same name by Harold Arlen and E.Y. Harburg, as sung by Judy Garland.
