CSA goodies

In our last batch we got some beauties:

Oh-so-sweet corn


Cabbage (little friend no-extra charge)


zucchini, peppers, onions, garlic, cucumbers, and broccoli. Since we haven't gotten any tomatoes yet I've been supplimenting with farmers market tomatoes.

It turns out this soup (we recently bought How to Cook Everything at 1/2 priced used books) is REALLY REALLY GOOD. We polished off every last drop. Go make it tomorrow!

Hi, Kate,

Your wonderful post / photos inspired me to make the same soup, given that I had a bunch of onions and corn from my new neighbors out here in Menomonie. Here's my photo (not quite as crisp-looking, but it sure was delicious):

Thanks for sharing!

P.S. You know me through Peter, just FYI.

Hm. Link isn't working. Try this one.

I was inspired as well, having just picked up at the farmers market this week corn (which is the best of the season so far), tomatoes and a zucchini that didn't quite get all used up making another food blogger's very tasty zucchini soda bread. I only had a quick taste of it last night before it went in the fridge so I'm excited for a proper taste tonight.

I've just had my first proper tasting of this soup and it is amazing! I omitted the basil as I didn't have any on hand and tossed in some Tony Cachare's (sp) cajun seasoning since our house likes spice. THANKS AGAIN!
