|So fun getting a weekly "present" of produce at our front door!|
Having a bunch of produce delivered to my house is not only convenient, it forces me to find ways to include all of this healthy stuff in our menu each week.
|The kids love discovering |
what's in the box each week!
The other awesome part of this deal is that if I find I'm out of any other groceries that the Farm Stand carries, I can just add them to my bin through their website and the groceries will be delivered to my house with my regular bin contents.
Here's what I plan on doing with this week's items:
Green beans - half going in a Thai chicken curry, half as a vegetable side another night.
Sweet potatoes - peel them, cube them, and roast them vegetable sides two nights
Grape tomatoes - used some on taco salad for dinner and the rest to snack on
Oranges - juiced 3 in margaritas one night and we will have the rest to snack on
Watermelon - the kids inhaled this within 1.5 days!
Lemon - made lemon muffins
Limes - used one in margaritas, have one left
Avocados - used one in avocado sushi rolls, the other two can go in sandwiches or salads for lunch
Broccoli - if I can get to the store for grapes I plan to make my favorite pasta salad (I reduce the dressing ingredients by half and only use 2-3 slices of bacon)
