I eat all day long. Before, when I used to work out of an office I would want to eat all the time but was restricted by whatever I brought for lunch that day. Now that I work from home, I don’t tend to make myself lunch for the week because I just snack on whatever is available and easy to throw together. This usually results in me eating constantly, all day, but my food never actually resembles a meal. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing but this past week I decided that I wanted to have something substantial and meal-like to have on hand.
Often, when I go pick up my CSA box they give us choices between a couple of different vegetables: swiss chard or kale, broccoli or cauliflower, green or yellow zucchini. I have to admit, this week I chose my vegetables solely based on colour. Even though we generally prefer broccoli, I simply couldn’t resist this bright yellow cauliflower and a yellow zucchini to match. Now all I had to do was to figure out what to do with them.
There’s always one monstrous vegetable that the guy doling out the produce for our CSA box is trying to get rid of. I always politely pass it up because a) I would have to figure out what to do with 5 pounds of x and b) there is no way that we would be able to consume 5 pounds of x in one week. So, you can imagine my joy when I discovered that the biggest zucchini/squash that I have ever seen in my life was sitting on my kitchen counter. This is what happens when my boyfriend goes to pick up the CSA box.
