We had another Bountiful Baskets pick up this weekend! It’s always fun to get an abundance of produce. This week, we have:
- Romaine Lettuce
- Cherry Tomatoes
- Yellow Onions
- Purple Sweet Potatoes
- Asian Pears
- Bananas (standard and baby)
- Green Grapes
We were also given several huge zucchinis from another participant. Her garden is going crazy so she was passing them out to anyone who would take some. We love zucchini and were happy to take a couple! A little light on veggies this week, but with a few frozen veggies, there’s lots of options for dinners! Fruit gets eaten as-is usually, occasionally dried or frozen to use later. This week it looks like we’ll easily make it through all the fruit before it needs to be stored. Now, onto the food! Most don’t include recipes. They’re meals we work up often, with bits & pieces of whatever is in the fridge and freezer. I’ll start working up the recipes for you as I make them this week!
Garden Pasta – Tomatoes, onions, cauliflower, zucchini, maybe some frozen peas. All mixed together with some garlic and olive oil, salt and pepper.
Taco Salad – Romaine lettuce, black beans, frozen corn, olives, tortilla chips. Topped with a salsa/greek yogurt dressing.
Cauliflower Rice & Beans – Cauliflower rice with some caramelized onions, spicy red beans. Served with fresh fruit or a quick smoothie.
Black Bean & Sweet Potato Tacos – Chopped purple sweet potatoes, seasoned with taco seasoning, mixed with black beans, onion, and garlic. Served in warm corn tortillas and a green salad on the side.
Lemon Pepper Chicken by Budget Bytes- Made with rice instead of Orzo. Served with some sauteed zucchini or green salad.
