Tomato's & Squash for the Summer - Local Box 6/27/12

Hey, i've been remiss again! I missed a whole box so i will do a quick catch up and list this weeks box

Last box i got Okra which i discovered last year i love roasted eaten whole from this recipe - Roasted Okra
I also got this insane cucumber:

A summer squash that i roasted, some kale & collards which i honestly can't remember how i cooked, i think i sauteed them together and i do remember they were delicious.
How crazy that i can't remember what else i made!

Ok here is this weeks box:

Fresh Pinto Beans
Cherry Tomatoes
Turnip Greens
Summer Squash
White Mushroom
Butternut Squash
1015 Onions
Live Basil Plant

I'm excited about the Pinto beans! I never make them from scratch i'm about to go have lunch with Christy Morgan who wrote Blissful Bites so i'm going to pick her brain on how best to cook them!

I did buy two new cookbooks this week tho so i want to use them.
Quick & Easy Low-Cal Vegan Comfort Foods by Alicia C. Simpson - has a recipe for Pinto Beans in Ancho Chili sauce, i want to try that and make nachos, yeah i have a nacho craving!

The other book i got is Wild About Greens by Nava Atlas - so I'm gonna start easy with her Simple Garlicky Greens recipe for the Turnip Greens

The box came with a recipe that i simply must make - Summer Squash Mushroom Skillet with Cherry Tomatoes- uses Onion & basil too.

PS. Christy has never made fresh Pinto Beans as in not dried, so I googled it and looky here - the Greenling blog itself came up! So here ya go
