We received our fourth CSA from Maplewood Organics today. In the CSA were some vegetables we haven't seen yet this season, flowers and fruit.

 

Cooper was thrilled with the flowers. Although, he might have been sniffing for catnip, as my friend Dori pointed out.

Sadly he didn't find any. But he gave them an adorable sniff test.

Yay! It's not a million degrees inside or out. It's time for turkey chili. I originally started using worcestershire sauce in the chili as a beef “fake out.” But I really love the taste and even if I did use beef I would still keep using the worcestershire for its subtle saltiness. And the addition of chipotles makes this chili really smoky. Our friend Ben nicknamed it "chaw chili."

 

 
Making a BLT with homemade pickled jalapenos PDF E-mail

There aren't many things I brag about - except the fact that, back in 1997, I learned how to play pool well enough not to embarrass myself.

 

And I stopped bragging about that in the early aughts.

 

But I do make the world's best BLT. It's not bragging if it's true, right?

 

The trick is rye bread, pickled jalapenos and parmesan cheese. Honest and for true.

 

This time around, though, I also upped the ante by pickling my own jalapenos and Hungarian wax peppers.

After a brief and embarrassing bout of heat sickness yesterday I don't feel like seeing the sun or even seeing the pilot light in our oven.

 

But a woman's got to eat – and while looking through the refrigerator tonight I remembered a recipe that I saw on Crasstalk a couple of weeks ago. The recipe itself sounded amazing but it called for crab – which isn't something I've developed a taste for. But someone suggested a non-seafood version in the comments and, low and behold, I had everything in the house the night I saw the recipe, and I still do tonight. It's delicious and, as a side benefit, I don't have to face the sun to buy any ingredients.

 

Here's the recipe, and the best part is that you can make it in the microwave.

 

 
Fried chicken with milk gravy PDF E-mail

Having a CSA reminds me of the New England WW2 phrase, "Use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without.” In this case sometimes we will have too much of one thing, not enough of something else, no space to store it in, and - in some cases - we need to use the ingredient immediately. Plan thriftily, think scarcity, think abundance, and think immediacy.

We had a huge package of bone-in chicken breasts that had gone on sale, a bag of baby potatoes we needed to use before they sprouted, we had a carton of milk with a limited shelf life, and we had a bunch of swiss chard and kale that could start wilting soon.

Hello, fried chicken, mashed potatoes, milk gravy and sauteed greens.
