Wednesday Specials and an unapologetic plug

Today we have several specials. The Asian inspired Eggplant Tomato Salad is greens lightly dressed with a sesame soy dressing, fresh yellow tomatoes, itty-bitty-teeny-weeny eggplants marinated in a variation of Korean barbecue, sweet white peppers, scallions and toasted sesame seeds. All the veggies (except the salad greens) from the fine folks at One Straw Farm.

The Spicy Pizza Panini is pepperoni, green peppers and onions, three cheeses and a spicy red sauce grilled on a ciabatta sub roll.

Finally, a Four Cheese Grilled Cheese Sandwich on Hearty Rye.

.................................

Apropos to nothing, just wanted to show off my latest "find". Home Depot makes a shop vac that snaps onto a five gallon bucket! I think my Annapolis Paint Shop Vac is trés sexy and since Brother No. One gave me the bucket, it only cost $19.99. It works like a charm, is easy to carry around and even hooks up to my miter saw for a low-budget dust collection system.

If you are driving "down the ocean" on Route 50 make a right turn at Dover Road then a sharp right onto East Dover Street to find an extraordinary, locally owned paint and decorating store in Easton, Maryland. Buy some of their high quality unfinished furniture and he might just throw in a bucket for you too.

Swiss Chard and Japanese Eggplant Quiche compliments of One Straw Farm.

Speaking of OSF, here's this weeks CSA "believe it or not" pics. At the height of a great growing season Cromwell Valley CSA has.....






















For a full share:
1 lb green beans
3 individual jalapeno peppers (about 1 1/2 inches long)
1 individual yellow hot pepper
2 individual golden zucchini
3 individual summer squash
1/2 pound lamb's quarter

You may remember in the spring and early summer when CVCSA pulled immature radishes. Well, the summer squash were left on the vine much too long. They are so huge as to be useless - nothing but string and seed. The quarts and quarts of tender golfball size patti pan we got from One Straw Farm early in the season made great bread and butter pickle. The weeds, dinner plate size patti pan and zucchini as large as my forearm we left on the Cromwell Valley CSA farm.

One Straw Farm (full share is pick eight portions) had pints of jalapeno peppers and a beautiful selection of bell peppers - white, purple, yellow, orange and green. As well as watermelon, cantaloupe, new potatoes, zucchini, japanese eggplant, dark purple and white eggplant, rainbow chard, sweet potato greens, red onions, purple onions, red banana peppers, and other stuff I'm sure to have forgotten.
