CSA for the week of June 20th: We have turned the CORNer into Summer!

Yes it is here! Put your ears to the table and listen, for the CORN is here. This week for the CSA we will be offering the following: 3 lbs. of squash, 3 bunches of garlicscapes, 3 cucumbers, 1 bag of lettuce, 2 quarts of peas, and three ears of CORN!
Our recipe for this week is for squash and zucchini:

Scooter's Saute

Use enough squash and zucchini for the size of your family. (family of four)
2 large yellow squash
2 large zucchini
1 large Vidalia onion
3 cloves of garlic
2 medium sized tomatoes
1/2 lb of fresh mozzarella
fresh Basil to taste
1/2 tsp. of oregano
salt and pepper to taste

In a deep saute pan drizzle olive or safflower oil and 3 gloves of chopped garlic, and saute. Cook until browned and leaving a great aroma around the kitchen. Add a large onion chopped and continue to saute on medium heat until onions are caramelized. Add squash and zucchini that has been sliced in circles and then quartered. Let the squash and zucchini cook until softened. Add fresh chopped tomatoes and basil, spiced with a bit of oregano, salt and pepper. Let it simmer for about 20-25 minutes. Five minutes before you are ready to serve add small 1/2 inch cubes of mozzarella, remove from the heat and serve.
