Local Box, 08.20.2008

Some old friends and some new ones arrived in my Local Box today!  My joy at seeing two “Caspian Pink” heirloom tomatoes knows no bounds.  It’s just not summer without fresh tomatoes, so I’m glad we get some more summer, yet.  And check out the variety okra!  Any great ideas to feature these unusual varieties?  I can’t wait to enjoy sliced cantaloupe with breakfast tomorrow.  And we’re going to have to get serious about eating some potatoes, sweet potatoes, and kabocha squash!  I’ve been saving up… This bounty might call for some mass roasting.

How are you planning to eat out of your Local Box this week?
