This week’s box left me wanting more.
It came with two small ornamental pumpkins, which immediately became a centerpiece, two apples, two pears, two eggplants, two jalapenos, two corono de toro peppers, daikon radishes, tomatoes, and bok choy.
From the share box, I took an extra bunch of bok choy because it looked wonderful.
I felt like there was very little challenge to using up all my produce this week.
We really end up eating the fruit as is most of the time. I used one jalapeno on pizza already, and we are discussing making ratatouille for something different with the eggplant. Although there was the 5 minute discussion clarifying that I was NOT talking about cooking a French rat for dinner. 🙂 Thanks Pixar.
I had been hoping for carrots because I want to make a roasted vegetable compote with the turnips from last week and I was hoping to add some carrots or squash for variety. I may have to buy some….. at the grocery store…. 😦
I’ll use the bok choy as a side with some sort of a chicken dish – I love Asian food.
The daikon radishes will be a challenge. We used to eat them quite a bit when I lived in Hawaii, but I haven’t used it much in a long time. I welcome any suggestions you might have!
