It’s hard to overstate how much I love the corn from our local farm: it’s truly awesome. It’s just the sweetest corn, and it’s always such good quality. So, when I saw that this week’s CSA box was going to include six ears of corn, I immediately signed up to get a box. NO QUESTION IN MY MIND. The funny thing with this box is that the amount of root veg included suggests a good opportunity to do a nice roasted root veg mixture, but the kids won’t go for it as much as dh & I would, so we’ll have to space things out a little more. Still, it’s a lovely blend of items in the box this week.

The one thing I’m completely at a loss about is the cucumbers. This is far more cuke that we’d use in a salad or just eat raw, so I need some ideas (besides “Just make a metric buttload of Tzadziki and invest in pita”). Not that it wouldn’t be a good idea, but this is enough cukes for a party-sized batch and we’re not in party mode for another two weeks.
On the plus side, as I write this, I can say that one item is already gone: the corn was wolfed down at dinner last night. SO GOOD.
