Sept. 4

Sorry this is a little bit late, things have been crazy since we got back from the Boundary Waters!

This week the boxes have

Butternut squash
Purple Beauty Peppers
Fatalii peppers (citrus flavor with the heat of a habanero)
Oyster mushrooms

Butternut squash is fantastic roasted in the oven and then mixed with butter and brown sugar. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Cut the stem off of the squash and then cut in half. Scoop out the seeds and pulp from the center of the squash. Brush the halves with butter and place on the baking sheet cut side up. Bake for 45 minute to 1 hour, then scoop squash out of the skin and mix with brown sugar and butter.

The tomatoes are not quite as big as we would like but they're still tasty. They are great on a BLT with some arugula instead of lettuce.

The fatalii peppers work really well in roasted salsa.

We're really excited about the oyster mushrooms!! You guys are the first people that get to try them out. Most likely, they won't keep as long as the shiitake mushrooms do but they should be fine in the fridge for about a week. Tonight my mom and I are trying them out on a pizza. But you can never really go wrong with the classic butter and garlic saute.
