I forgot a picture of my cheddar squash bread, which collapsed in the center like a cheese soufflé but was excellent warm!
A true summer basket this week! I couldn’t be more excited about corn (all 8 ears!), but won’t say the same for all this squash! Let’s see how many recipes I can hide it in this week.
- Roast chicken with carrots
- Cheddar zucchini bread
- Thai style tofu fried rice
- Squash crust pizza
- Corn salad
- Orzo and squash
We’ll eat all our fruit as snacks. I may have to make some additional squash breads to use up everything we got this week!
I’ve got an ambitious plan to make up for lost time with my menu this week, including trying to use veggies that have been languishing in the crisper for several weeks now. (Looking at you, cabbage!)
Some old favorites:
And some new ideas:
- Chicken stew with farro and tomatoes (recipe from The Chef and the Slow Cooker)
- Plum cake (I’ll probably freeze this for later)
I’m also going to see if the cayennes ripen to red on the counter, then dehydrate and crush them to make homemade red pepper flakes!

(True story, when I was lifting my basket out of the shopping cart while leaving the store after my pick up this week, a peach fell out of my basket, bounced down a stair, and rolled down the sidewalk, stopping just short of 6 lanes of traffic. You definitely know I walked down there, dusted it off, and took it on home with me. I washed it, peeled it, cut out the bruised part and I plan to eat it over cottage cheese for breakfast tomorrow! No peach left behind! 🙈)
