Using Your Share - Early October

It is early October and we are still getting fresh tomatoes and summer squash. Come January, we'll be wishing we had them again but right now I'm sure a lot of you are wondering what to do with the bounty! For starters, I found an excellent change of pace in this recipe from one of my favorite blogs, Smitten Kitchen: http://smittenkitchen.com/blog/2007/12/ratatouille-tart/ and it is easy to find store bought puff pastry these days.
