Dinner tonight

We had such a large haul from last week's CSA share (tomatoes, green beans, swiss chard, boston lettuce, red leaf lettuce, corn, beets, pattypan squash, kale, and basil) that I was starting to stress about how I was going to use it all, especially since we will only be home for dinner a couple of nights this week.

Yesterday I made some fresh chicken stock. So tonight's dinner was lettuce soup courtesy of Serious Eats (I had made it before, and it was good, but this time it was even more delicious). Then I made some sesame green beans sauteed with a little crushed red pepper. And the "main" course was baked pattypan squash stuffed with onion, swiss chard, panko bread crumbs, and parmesan cheese. Jeeves was worried it wouldn't be enough food. That's before he realized how much fiber is in all these veggies! I am stuffed, and pleased that in one meal I managed to use so much of my CSA share.
