Twenty years or so from now, when Sunday morning news programs look back nostalgically on the summer of 2014, they will likely recall that in August of that year it seemed that everyone in the country was hoisting a bucket over his head and dousing himself with ice water — aka, the Ice Bucket Challenge. We here at Catfish and Waffles demurred, being of too advanced an age to partake in such system-shocking exercises. However, we are not challenge-adverse, so we came up with one of our own, which we call the CSA Challenge. On August 15, our CSA haul included the following:
- green beans
The challenge we gave ourselves was to account for the entire contents of the basket — how we prepared them, or how we preserved them. So in the next few days, we will post recipes for tomato soup, dilly beans, eggplant parmesan, and canned tomatoes with peppers. The carrots are an easy one — Donna just added them to her breakfast smoothies. We’ll talk about that too.
