Week 23: What’s in the Box?

Week 23. Only TWO more weeks to go! I’m so happy it’s almost over!

More stuff in the Swap Box: Romaine Lettuce, Spaghetti Squash, Cilantro and Radishes.  The only thing I was able to get out of the Swap Box was more Potatoes.

I used the Tatsoi from last week in a Shrimp Scampi dish that I make, and I loved the flavor it brought to the dish. I’ll probably use this week’s Tatsoi when I stuff a beef tenderloin – yum!

No major plans for anything else. I usually use Leeks in soup, so I’ll probably wash, cut up and freeze these leeks for when I need them for a recipe.

 Apples are coming out of my ears

 I’m going to say it. I’m really tired of Apples.  And it’s only October. But there have been way too many Apples from my Fruit Share. I like Apples. I do. But not when they’re shoved down my throat week after week.

 

Week 17: What’s in the Box?

*sigh* This is going to be short. Because so is the list of things I’m keeping this week. I’m literally counting down the weeks until this is over. I think there’s what, 8 weeks left? Something like that. And I’m sure the selection isn’t going to get much better, unfortunately.

There’s not much more to say. Tomatoes. Onions. Garlic. Again. And a few other things that we do not like/want.

I’m interested to see what this Tatsoi (Japanese Spinach) is all about. But aside from that…boring.

Boo! Cantaloupe! Although someone before us didn’t want their Peaches, so since we didn’t take the Cantaloupe they gave us those Peaches! Score.

What would you make with all of those Peaches?!
