Very recently Laura at (not so) Urban Hennery asked what food bloggers (am I a food blogger? I don’t feel like one, I just happen to be blogging about our CSA food this summer) eat when they aren’t blogging about it. Now I do think this blog project has caused me to unintentionally create more elaborate meals than I do on a regular basis, but if the food I cook comes from the CSA then I blog about it (the other nights tend to be leftovers or something mundane like pasta with jarred sauce or nacho-craving indulgences). If these cucumbers weren’t from the CSA I would have never ever blogged about it.
Well Tuesday night I wasn’t very hungry, was tired, didn’t feel like cooking, had a huge pile of produce on my dining room table…. Plus we now had oodles of cucumbers because I forgot we hadn’t eaten them from last week’s pickup and we got a gallon ziplock full from TheHusband’s mom’s garden when we visited her the week before and we got oodles more at this week’s pick-up. So I “made” cucumbers for dinner. Wash, slice, serve. Add a little bowl of salt to sprinkle on to taste. In the end that wasn’t all, but that was dinner.
