Farm to Work, Round 3

What we made last week:
More Refrigerator pickles
grilled crookneck and zucchini (this was delicious)
fried okra
fried green onion shoestrings
gumbo (used green onion, tomato, okra)
fruit parfaits (blackberries)
steamed green beans

we still have cabbage, and some green beans. Now then, you may point out that I didn't mention green onions last week...and this would be because i thought we were given 2 bunches of leeks. But we weren't, we were given 1 bunch of leeks, and 1 bunch of green onion. I ended up with green onion.

Unfortunately, Matt didn't eat ANY of his vegetables, so I ended up with his Leeks (Ross and Colleen ended up with his squash and cucumbers). Of course, since Matt didn't eat any of his veggies from the week before; he told me I could have all 20 lbs of fresh produce for this last delivery. I, rightfully, flipped out. I didn't know what to do with 20 lbs of veggies that we likely wouldn't be able to eat. Thankfully, Sergio hadn't done an order, and he normally does, so he paid Matt to have his half of the veggies.

So now, I have:
1 Crookneck
1 zucchini
1 lb okra (I think we're going to try it grilled this time...and I'll probably fry some as well--Shawn REALLY likes fried okra)
1 pint blackberries
1 cucumber
Romaine Lettuce
2 Potatoes
2 yellow onions
1 bunch of leeks (plus matt's bunch from last week)

I think we're having the rest of the green beans tonight...and I'll throw some onion in the meal I'm making as well...Oh, and I'll probably have a salad to use up some cucumber.

Today we will make leek soup. First, you take a leek...

Man, that's some funny food naming!
