CSA Box- This week's bounty

Salads in the morning and in the afternoon, salads in the evening and underneath the moon. . .

Well, not really, but two large heads of lettuce is a lot for one person even if they are fresh, crisp, and delicious. My first CSA box went surprisingly well. I managed to keep on schedule, finish most of the vegetables, and am very excited for my second box of goodies. The next two heads of lettuce may be tricky to manage, especially since I'm still polishing off week one's lettuce, but I'll let you know how it turns out. 

Box Contents:
¾ lb Summer Squash
1 bunch Cilantro
1 lb Carrots (purple!)
¾ lb Broccoli
¾ lb Cauliflower
1 bunch Dino Kale
1½ lbs French Fingerling Potatoes
2 heads of Lettuce
½ lb Spinach
1 bunch Red Beets

Dishes to utilize vegetables:
#1 Vegetable frittata with summer squash, broccoli, fingerling potatoes and a cilantro chile sauce
#2 Salads with roasted beets, carrots, and broccoli 
#3 Sautéed spinach and beet greens (I made this last week, but it was a great side dish so I'm doing it again)
#4 Oven roasted cauliflower with panko and chile
#5 Kale smoothies 
#6 Marinated and grilled summer squash
