CSA Box- Tomatoes are here!!!

Tomatoes, carrots, and squash- oh my! It's Wednesday again my friends and not only did I receive my first tomatoes, my lettuce inventory is once again re-stocked to the brim. Two heads of lettuce, and I know I mention this a lot, is A LOT of lettuce. But, I'm managing. I'd like to report that I have yet to throw out any CSA box vegetables that have spoiled or gone rotten before I had a chance to eat it, despite my lettuce glut. Never mind that I shared vegetables with friends over the holiday weekend, but sharing is caring, not cheating to finish your veggies. . . Or, you could argue I'm sharing the vegetable love in the form of marinated and grilled cauliflower and summer squash. Recipe to follow.

Box Contents:
1 pint Gold Nugget Cherry Tomatoes
1/3 lb Green Beans
1 lb Broccoli
1 lb Summer Squash
1 bunch Tokyo Turnips
1 bunch Chioggia Beets
1 bunch Carrots
1 bunch Parsley
2 heads Lettuce

Dishes to utilize vegetables:
-Roasted vegetable medley- turnips, carrots, and beets
-Fresh salads with carrots, broccoli, parsley and tomatoes with protein (for lunches & side salads)
-Green beans with pancetta
-Summer squash fritters
