This week’s sunny forecast is well complemented by an equally bright lineup of Tex-Mex and summer favorites: Enjoy spicy chorizo sausage, Peruvian Mayocoba beans, spicy jalapeño peppers from Skagit County and locally-crafted, hand-pressed tortillas for taco night, as well as crunchy snap peas, cilantro, green cabbage, mixed summer squash, baby fennel, and more finds from the garden to incorporate into summery sides. Also found in your box: Farm-fresh eggs, garlic scapes and a sweet market bouquet of blooms. Here’s to good weather—and great eating!
