CSA Week 13: More chances to experiment

There were a lot of repeat items in this week's delivery, but they are favorites that allow me to do some experimenting with cooking.
So far I've used two of the eggplants and the pink-eyed peas. The peaches will be meant for peach crumble and I'm thinking of roasting the tomatoes and tossing them with feta cheese and balsamic vinegar.

Price Breakdown

  • 1 watermelon: $5.99
  • 1 cantaloupe: $3.99
  • 8 peaches: $10.47
  • 3 tomatoes: $5.99
  • 3 eggplant: $7.98
  • 1 lb. of pink-eyed peas: $2.78
      • Total: $37.20
    • Total saved: $16.20
    Note on the pictures: The tomatoes were slightly under-ripe (hence the orange color) and the peaches were really dusty. A quick scrub for the peaches and a two days on a sunny windowsill fixed these babies right up and they look just as a good as they taste. Often with fresh, farm-grown fruits and veggies, they really don't have to perfectly formed for them to be tasty and healthy.
