Warm Shrimp Salad with Kamut, Red Chile and Tarragon Substitued our CSA jalapenos for the red chiles. The only kamut I could find was kamut flakes. They were super quick to make probably about 3 minutes versus the recipe directions.

Poblano and Spinach Posole - (chili) Tried 3 different grocery poblanos...we'll try again another time.

Meatball Subs - if you want the recipe on these, let me know.
Autumn Golden Vegetable Lasagna (the boys had their belt test on Friday, so we treated them with a dinner out afterwards.) Pushed to next week.

Blue Squash risotto with radicchio Must not have been the week for radicchio...after checking 2 stores, I gave up and used arugula instead. After getting a blue hubbard squash in our CSA box, I found this recipe and I have to say it may have been the tastiest risotto we've ever made. I added our CSA jalapenos which added a great flavor. I put some arugula in the dish but also served it on the side along with CSA cherry tomatoes. We had some (England Acres) bacon leftover from another meal so I crumbed some on top.

september 12-16

Balsamic & Parmesan Cauliflower with grilled fish We used was pretty good, not too "fishy". Eric thought it was alittle plain tasting.

Seared Scallops with chorizo and potatoes Working through our CSA potatoes...For a Rick Bayless recipe, we thought it was missing something. We watched a show of his recently and he made a bunch of stuff along with this recipe so we think we may have forgotten what else went with it. It was still good though.

Beer battered cod sliders Eric loves fried fish. I used a whole wheat flour...don't get me wrong, it was still very good, just probably would have been better with regular flour.

Stuffed Squash with herbed goat cheese Very good! We got 2 acorn squash in our CSA box...thank you Farmer Rick! I didn't have goat cheese so I used feta instead.

Curry Butternut Squash Received a butternut squash in the CSA. I blended two different butternut squash soup recipes for this one. If anyone is interested in making it, let me know...because I'm not going to waste my time typing it up if no one is making it. Also, I made homemade focaccia bread too. Again, if you want the recipe, let me know.
