Cooking from the Farmer's Market (or CSA) 2013

I am going to start this thread in honor of breadcrumbs, who started last year's similar thread, one that many of we 'hounds enjoyed participating in. So, what sort of inspiration are you finding at the market in in your CSA basket? What sorts of unusual offerings or familiar comforts are sending you to your kitchen (indoor and outdoor!) in search of creating culinary goodness?

I'll start--I made some loubia (or loob'ya, however one transliterates it. It's a Middle Eastern dish (stemming from Syria/Lebanon, if I'm not mistaken). Green beans are cooked with onion, garlic, and tomatoes for a long time--an hour or more. This dish is kind of saucy but not soupy. I think it tastes even better the next day. Can be served warm or at room temperature.

I also grilled some rabbit legs from the market, which I marinated in an olive oil mixture flavored with my own rosemary. I never grilled rabbit before this summer, having always braised it.

I've also canned some beets and jams, but I discuss those on the various canning threads.

How about you?
