This week's CSA haul:

1 basket of cooking greens (Russian kale and "perpetual spinach")
1/2 basket of salad greens (lettuce, arugula, mustard greens, tatsoi)
2 pounds summer squash
3 beets with greens
1 head small cabbage (softball-sized)
1 bunch broccoli
2 pickling cucumbers
handful large scallions

1 pint basil leaves
1 pint green beans
(declined to pick a pint of cilantro)
bunch of flowers

The summer squash/zucchini situation continues to be out of control, though it's down a bit from last week. I still haven't figured out what to do with the two-pound zucchini. The ratio of "rabbit food" to other vegetables has fortunately gone down a bit; seven salads a week was starting to feel oppressive.

I highly highly recommend the carrot zucchini bisque recipe from my CSA (scroll about halfway through the recipes on that page). It tells you to use 6 big carrots and 2 medium zucchini but I used a dozen tiny carrots (probably equal to 3 large carrots) and one giant zucchini and one small zucchini and left all the other ingredient the same and it was really excellent. I bet you could even toss in some summer squash and it would be good but I didn't try that.

My favorite zucchini recipes:
garlic zucchini- saute in some olive oil with one clove of garlic, crushed, per zucchini, sliced quite thin. I allocate one squash per person. We eat this a lot. It keeps well in the fridge, so you can make a bunch at once.

minty zucchini soup- I need to keep searching for this one. It was an awesome recipe from, I thought, the Globe, that I made last spring. Used a ton of zucchini, but ended up just tasting very fresh.

It was in the August 21, 2005 edition of the Boston Globe Magazine in the cooking section.

And lo, and behold, the link still works!!
