Wow, is it really What’s in the Box Wednesday already? It almost doesn’t seem possible. It feels like I *just* wrote last week’s post about what we got in the CSA box, and here I am again!
I’m enjoying the CSA more now than I was before, because we’re getting better vegetables. But that doesn’t change my overall feeling of this experience. Yes, it’s been good to try some new vegetables, but 9 times out of 10 I don’t like them, lol. But this is something I can say I tried, even if I didn’t love it.
So anyway…this week we got a few staple vegetables such a Garlic, Green Beans, Green Bell Peppers, a few varieties of Tomatoes, and some Basil! I just need to get some Fresh Mozzarella from Reading Terminal Market and I can make a killer Tomato, Basil and Mozzarella Salad! We got a healthy amount of Basil so maybe I’ll make some pesto or something as well.

The Peaches over the last few weeks have been a hit (with me), but we’ll see how long it takes me to get sick of them! But they have been great for an afternoon snack or to cut up and put in a Smoothie. We got quite a few this week, so maybe I’ll make some kind of Peach Cobbler. I am super excited about the Watermelon. I cut into it and noticed there were seeds, so I was pretty bummed about that. So it took me quite a while to get all of the seeds out and cut it up.
