Week 24 – Pumpkins and Peppers

This week in our box we had one pumpkin (I got the second one from the share box), purple curly kale, a cantelope, small  carrots,  lots of peppers and two bunches of bok choy.

The peppers are a wonderful mixture of colors.

The purple kale will make beautiful baked kale chips.

My daughter and I have already decided we will make pumpkin puree this weekend and make pumpkin ravioli – That should make a fun blog post!

And of course we have to make toasted pumpkin seeds.

I love the small carrots because they make a wonderful plate.

I  always enjoy suggestions for new ways to serve what I received in the CSA  box.  This week, I am particularly looking for new preparations for the kale and the bok choy.

  1. I’ve been enjoying my kale on pizza and in smoothies. http://www.farmfreshfeasts.com/2012/09/red-russian-kale-baby-bella-and-feta.html
    The whole family loved Bok Choy in a meat pie, must get that recipe up soon. Your carrots look wonderful-are they roasted? I got 2 pairs of ‘carrot pants’ in my box this week, and put a photo up on my FB page. I have too much fun with my food!

  2. Speaking of pumpkins, we have a favorite Thai restaurant (Montira’s Thai Cuisine) in The Dalles that serves Pumpkin Curry that is worth the 2 hour drive!
