With just two more weeks to go in my first year of the CSA, I’ve got mixed emotions. Although it has been fantastic receiving the weekly bundle of local vegetables, the last few weeks have lacked the excitement I had been getting used to. Let’s just say that I am looking forward to heading to the green market for some variety and that “greens” may not be on my shopping list….
One of the staples of the last few CSA shares has been ridiculously enormous zucchini. And I mean ridiculous! And since there is only so much zucchini bread one can eat, I thought it would be the perfect time to make one of my favorite meals. Stuffed Zucchini in my mind is much better than the bell pepper version because well, green bell peppers have to be my least favorite vegetable. This time around I used an earthy filling of sautéed ground turkey and butternut squash. With some celery for crunch and a bit of my favorite curry powder, the stuffed zucchini came out terrific! Perfect with a side of roasted broccoli, brussel sprouts, and scallions. So pumped for brussel sprout season!
And in exciting news, tonight I make my triumphant (let’s hope so) return to the Casserole Cook-off. If you remember, two years ago I had a great time despite not bringing home the prize. But this time around, I’m feeling extra confident about my entry. I won’t give it away (for fear of potential copy cat contestants) but with a name like “Jewish penicillin” I bet you could start to guess…Wish me and my casserole luck!
