What to Do With Your Share---Week 8

 If you haven’t already, I hope that you have read the Pickling Primer in the blog below. Pickling cukes are here, try them out. The window of opportunity is small, take advantage now!

No pickles at dinner, but we did enjoy a nice assortment of vegetables. Paste is a go-to meal for us on nights we are busy. We make a lot of tomato sauce each year for just such an occasion. As we like to say, when we can the sauce---we are thinking of the future Tom and Rebecca. Thanks guys.
A quick sautéing of onions and chard stems, followed by some chopped tomatoes and tomato sauce, and finished with a nice bunch of chopped Swiss chard leaves. A good quick, hearty meal and usually some leftovers.

Another suggestion for this week is grilled pasta primavera. Summer squash, eggplant, peppers, onions and garlic are all great either grilled or broiled. Cook amounts based on what you have on hand and how hungry you are. Once the grilled vegetables are cool to the touch, chop them and mix them with pasta, olive oil and grated cheese.
