This CSA pickup was a very special one. Besides all those glorious! tomatoes! my mom was able to come with me to the pick up. Her and my Dad are in town visiting for a week. We spent the day on the river, then went into town to pick up this tasty plentitude – three bags worth! It was sundrenched day, and this bouquet of flowers my mom helped me pick, then arranged on my kitchen table, brought some of that sunshine inside.
I take everything out, and I cook it. All of it. Well – almost all of it.
This is one of those meals. Those meatballs are actually venison burger from the freezer, seasoned and grilled. They’re served on a pita with a drizzle of homemade ranch dressing (we had no yogurt to make tzatziki, unfortunately) and Sriracha. The vegetables were originally skewered and taken out to the grill, but we didn’t have enough coals to really cook them, so I ended up sauteing them in a nice hot cast iron pan to get a grill-type char on them and cook them until just crisp-tender.
The meal could’ve been a massive fail (the meat, it was close. Did I mention I put it on sticks first? That was a ridiculous idea) but it ended up working out, deliciously.
No recipe here – just desperation.
