Here’s what’s been updated on Veggiescope this week:

Let’s take a quick jaunt through Sarah’s kitchen!

This plate screams summer! BBQ chicken on the grill with steamed beans and juicy watermelon.

image

Lots of corn this week, I love to add flavor to corn with fun toppings. This one is chives from the herb garden and shaved Parmesan cheese!

image

4 ears of our corn was grilled with husk on this week. If you try this one be sure to soak the corn in water before placing them on the grill!

image

Started the day off right with a blueberry, swiss chard and local honey smoothie!

Let’s take a quick jaunt through Jess’ kitchen!

Hi everyone, Jess here.  I was on vacation this week, so much of the cooking was done up north and as it was vacation, we ate out some.  We waited until noontime on Monday before starting our vacation adventure, picked up our CSA from Springdell, and made the 3 hour drive north from there!  

imageWhen our family came to visit us up North, I sent them home with some chard, corn, and the lovely gladiolas from the flower share, which they were happy to take home.  All have been providing much enjoyment for me and the family at home and on vacation! As it was vacation, I was grateful for many finger foods in the share this week!

Big and crunchy dino kale chips!

image

My kohlrabi was used the same way 2 weeks in a row, sliced and pan fried in amish roll butter with a sprinkle of kosher salt, topped with a runny egg.

image

Here are some more kohlrabi hash browns topped with an egg (I can be a one-trick-pony when it comes to recipes that work), along with zucchini pancakes!

image

I went a bit out of the box and tried an old recipe for fried cucumbers! Recipe to follow soon.

image

One of the days on vacation, I enjoyed some kale with sautéed shiitake mushrooms, soy sauce and sesame oil. Simple and delicious!

image

Steamed beans, Springdell Burgers with massaged kale, corn and smashed red potatoes. What a perfect summer meal!

image

My oldest son is such a fan of the “egg in a nest”. He could eat one everyday!

image

In case you missed it, Farmer Jamie’s Zucchini and ‘Cado soup was a yummy one!

I had big plans to make a blueberry cake with lemon buttercream, even going so far as to bring the baking necessities up north, however before I noticed, my boys ate all the blueberries.  This one will need to be tabled until the next harvest of berries.  

See you tomorrow for Sunday Dinner, where I’ll be using that head of cabbage!  I’ll expound on some of these cucumber ideas in the next day or two as well.  Enjoy!
