CSA Basket 11

This week's basket contained Carrots, Basil, Lemon Cucumbers, Purple Long Beans, Green Beans, Beets, Grapefruit, Nectarines, Peach, Pluots, Cabbage, Apples, Corn, Reid Avocado, Grapes, Lettuce, Tomato, and Parsley. Contemplating various Asian inspired dishes for the purple long beans and cabbage. Really not sure what to do with lemon cucumbers. Carrots, green beans, beets, nectarines, peaches, apples, some avocado, and some grapes are going to be baby food in one form or another.

Lemon cucumbers taste similar to regular cucumbers and would be good in any typical cucumber application. I don't usually do anything with them other than use them in salads.

Is Zoe eating non mashed food, like grapes, now? We still have a few weeks to go, but I'm getting excited for the prospect of Dexter playing with food!

The foods we've cleared for allergies in their mushed states are also clear for eensy tiny pieces. She's a trooper on pieces of banana and peaches. After she finishes clearing nectarines and oats this week I'm thinking about starting pieces of grapes (whole grapes are a choking hazard).
