UFO-shaped squash, two red-through-the-center tomatoes, and a package of garlic butter. These are the makings of a good meal.

This week, we got a real treat in our Local Roots' delivery: Ronnybrook garlic butter! It was a reminder that CSA shares include more than just vegetables.

We also got two onions, two UFO-shaped squash, two tomatoes, an eggplant, and a head of red lettuce. 

The first order of business? Merrill's tomato sandwich, recreated by Kristen. The sandwich is made up of just five ingredients: wholegrain bread, the summer's best tomatoes, mayonnaise, salt, and pepper. 

Look how red those tomatoes are!

Now that we've scratched our tomato sandwich itch, it's time to think about what else to do with our CSA:

What would you do with these ingredients? 

Share a photo of your creation on Instagram and tag it with #madewithlocalroots and @localrootsnyc. In the first week of August, Local Roots will pick their favorite recipes and they'll include them on the menu for their supper club. The winner will receive two spots to the dinner, so get cooking!
