I can’t believe I’m writing a blog post about using up vegetables this early in our Colorado growing season. Hot temperatures arrived early this year bringing with it produce we don’t normally see until July. So, vegetable preparation and consumption is officially in full swing in our kitchen. You see, we joined a CSA this year.
As a kid, growing up on a farm in the middle of Kansas, the Memorial Day weekend was a declaration of ”let the summer games begin”. School had just let out, swimming pools in town were open for the season and summer softball leagues were in full swing. The horseshoe pit in the back yard was open for business and June bug wars with the cousins was in full swing. Three action-packed months lay ahead of us before school started again around Labor Day.
