Ten ears of corn and one more (hidden) cucumber!
Normally I would not buy ten ears of corn at once.

I guess I’m not normal anymore. That’s ok, I never want to go back.
Here’s what came in the box:
- 11 ears corn
- 6 cucumbers
- 1 zucchini
- 1 purple eggplant
- 1 white eggplant
- 1 LIGHT GREEN THING
- 1 bulb garlic
- 1 onion
- 1 yellow zucchini/squash
- 1 bunch dill
- 1 bag basil
- 1 celery
- 1 head of lettuce
- 1 bunch of chard
It really does take us two weeks to get through everything. Here’s what I did with the patty pan squash:
Patty pan squash with basil and olive oil (before oven roasting)
I’ll spare you both a link to the recipe and the final product. I am not a fan. I like spaghetti and acorn squash, but not patty pan, sadly. Hey, at least I tried.
Big win? The cabbage I turned into the most delectable slaw. I’ll share the recipe later (I must go to sleep now).
I’m loving my new relationship with produce.
