Summer's Last Gasp or Summer Everlasting?

I knew this blog would devolve into a CSA love fest--no sense in stopping now. It's September and the stars of summer are still going strong--they don't last as long, but they're still good. This week's box: tomatoes (heirloom, cherry, and roma) grapes, basil, sweet potatoes, gypsy peppers and corn.
This week's surprise: Tomatillos! I've never cooked with them--roasted tomatillo salsa is in order. They smell so good, like a cross between green chiles & tomatoes=heaven

Another heirloom beauty.

Inspired. First meal out of the veggie box--summer saute over capellini with kale. Saute: sauteed garlic, onion, and corn, thick slices of heirloom tomato added for just a minute, heated to perfection (that moment before they lose their shape) topped with feta.
