Week 5…here we go! I’m finally getting the hang of finding summer produce recipes for all the amazing fruits and veggies in my CSA share every week. Our refrigerator is constantly brimming with vegetables and I’m doing my best to predict which will spoil first and use those right away. I planned dinners for the week last night, and my grocery list for today consists of, and I’m not even kidding you, a single avocado. Is that even possible? Although I paid for it up front, the CSA share isn’t exactly a steal, so it’s nice to see some savings coming through in my “regular” weekly shopping.
I’m trying to be better about snapping pictures of dinner most nights, even if it’s not the usual 90 minute glamor shot food photography session I’m used to. This way I can at least show you what I made, then go back later to take extra pretty shots and give the recipe its very own post. Plus having any pictures at all helps me remember bits and pieces of the recipe when my notes are sparse, to say the least. When I get caught up in the flow of cooking, my happy place, if you will, writing down measurements, times, and indicators sometimes falls by the wayside. You don’t even want to know what my recipe notebook looks like with symbols and arrows and random scribbling smattered across the page.
