This week, we got:
- Tomatoes (1 large, 2 medium, and a dozen plum)
- Summer Squash
- (Red loose leaf lettuce) Traded for Yukina Savoy
- Bok Choy
- Sweet peppers
I boiled the Yukina and Bok Choy for dinner last Tuesday with my share partner Chris. He took home potatoes, a cucumber and the zucchini. I kept the rest, most of which went into a somewhat successful attempt at making my own pasta sauce.
I think the sauce failed mostly from a lack of garlic and herbs; it came out tasting mostly tomato-y and not very spaghetti-sauce-like. I also wonder if including the plum tomatoes had anything to do with it, since I know the medium-sized tomatoes are supposed to be better for sauce. Aside from that, though, making the sauce turned out to be more straightforward than I had anticipated, so I think I'll try again.
