Happy First Day of Summer! While Summer is probably my least favorite season, its arrival coincides with Birthday Month and ushers in a season of delicious produce, which are two of my favorite things. And June probably is my absolute favorite month so far for colorful, flavorful, and varied CSA treats. My goal for this week’s menu was to fit all these colorful summertime favorites into delicious go-to recipes, so that I could celebrate the only way I know – through food!
