This week, we received: 2 Japanese eggplants, 4 Thai eggplants, a summer squash, 2 baking apples, four tomatoes, a small red bell pepper, and some black-eyed peas.
I soaked the black-eyed peas overnight and boiled them for 25 minutes. I didn’t use a recipe because most of the recipes involve ham, bacon, collard greens, or something else “southern.”
I ate the tomatoes plain.
I made stir-fried chicken and eggplant with Asian basil with the Japanese and Thai eggplants, modifying this recipe. I made it without any peppers, deciding any eaters could use Sriracha to adjust their dish.
From a few weeks of getting baking apples, I now have 4 baking apples – enough to feel like turning on the oven, even though it’s summer. I used this recipe.
