CSA box, week...9?!

Okay, so I'm a little behind schedule.  Family issues.  The drama is ongoing, and not even remotely humorous, but I am cautiously hopeful that there will be a slight respite for a few weeks.

Last week's box, whose exact contents currently eludes me, was hastily turned into assorted stuffed things.  Stuffing was ground turkey, ground pork, blackeyed peas, ranchero beans, some spices, parsley, and bread crumbs.  Things to be stuffed were peppers, summer squash, and cabbage leaves.  This seems to have kept the housemate/catsitter happily fed while I was away.  The remaining CSA and garden items from last week were given away to friends and coworkers.

This week's box is tomato-heavy:  sungold tomatoes, slicing tomatoes, roma tomatoes, basil, cilantro, tomatillos, hot peppers, carrots, scallions, and cucumbers.  My own garden is still producing shedloads of green beans, as well as tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, and Thai basil. 

So tonight I made a batch of Thai-like green beans again.  Beans, onion, okra, tomatillos, tomatoes (peeled), Thai basil, pigeon peas with coconut, Penzey's Bangkok blend, and garlic pickle.  Side of basmati rice with cilantro, and I got a tub of Middle Eastern yogurt.  Not my greatest concoction, but quite serviceable.  This weekend, I will need to do something about all those tomatoes.  Maybe invite a couple friends over for a tomato tasting, seeing as I have many varieties.

I've about hit my limit on eating green beans, so will need to make some more room in the freezer. 

At work, I've started to reacquaint myself with Java.  Java's a big topic, but the parts I've worked with so far are as boring as I remember.  I suppose I'm just old-fashioned, waxing nostalgic about the days when you had to really suffer for your software.  Anyway, Java's a likely candidate for interfacing with the new system when we get it.  Which is ironic, since Java's kind of old and obsolete now.
Friending welcome, but lurking is fine too.

Constructive criticism is also welcome - whatever it is, trust me, I've heard worse.
