CSA Week 4 (plus menu)

Here's our haul from our CSA this week:

Swiss chard, 16 summer squash, 3 yellow zucchini, 8 green zucchini, 2 large kohlrabi, 5 greenhouse tomatoes, English peas, sugar snap peas, strawberries, red leaf lettuce

Here's what we're eating this week:
WEDNESDAY: tacos*, refried beans, salad* (from Tuesday’s menu- we ate leftovers then)
THURSDAY: Grilled BBQ chicken, grilled zucchini* and squash*, English peas, strawberries
FRIDAY: savory meatloaf, sugar snap peas*, Swiss chard*, salad*
SATURDAY: (company over) burgers (with lettuce and tomato), grilled zucchini* and squash*, kohlrabi* (Steamed and tossed with butter & salt), kohlrabi* chips (from the leaves), zucchini fritters*
SUNDAY: pizza and salad*, zucchini* bread
MONDAY (Memorial Day- company over)- grilled hot dogs & burgers, grilled squash* and zucchini*, baked beans, deviled eggs
TUESDAY: chicken tenderloins, salad*, any leftover veggies*

David and I enjoyed the kohlrabi last week.  I boiled it and tossed it with a little butter & salt and pepper. It tasted kinda like a very mild broccoli.  It didn't make very much, so the others didn't get to try it, but we'll see what they think this week.  Peas are not our favorite, so we'll be glad when pea season is over and green beans and corn come in. Jon and I really have been enjoying grilled zucchini and squash- toss with a little olive oil and some seasoning, and grill until soft (about 20min).  Delicious.  
 I picked up a couple of McCormick Grill-Mates seasonings, and they are so good on chicken, veggies, burgers- pretty much anything we grill.  Our favorites are Applewood Rub, Smokehouse Maple, & Brown Sugar Bourbon.  We really have been enjoying being able to eat out on our deck, and are thankful for warm, sunny days.
