I got another produce basket from Bountiful Baskets this weekend. It seemed a little on the sparse side, but I think that's too be expected in the winter. I really can't wait to see the summer baskets! I think this one might just seem to be getting used up a lot faster because we did/will use a lot of it together.
Here's what we got:
There was a small watermelon, cantaloupe, and papaya, 6 fuji apples, bananas, and 4 persimmons (those are the red tomato looking things in front--never even seen one before!). For veggies we got a pack of mushrooms (which we don't care for, but I intend to make homemade cream of mushroom soup for the freezer), 6 roma tomatoes, romaine (I think) lettuce, broccoli, and rainbow carrots. (I'm pretty excited to try a purple carrot!)
Now most of the veggies will just go into a big salad, and the melons we've already diced up and eaten/stored away in the fridge, and I think there will be smoothies.
I'm kinda glad there wasn't too much thought and creativity going into this week's basket (except the persimmons~more on that tomorrow!) because my husband and I have both been a little bit sick, and the house is showing that! Because of that, I'm mostly going to be grabbing from the freezer for dinners this week.
Here's the plan:
Persimmon bread (recipes coming tomorrow!)
carrot muffins (from freezer)
Ramen & Chef Boyardee (yep...after shopping and baking that was it for me!)
sandwiches x3 (ham, peanut butter, tuna)
Turkey soup (already thawing)
Beef stroganoff (assuming I get that cream of mushroom made....or It's not like I don't have a can of it sitting around...)
Italian Sausage Soup x2 (cooking this one fresh, but will freeze a lot of it)
(Saturday Night church this week so perhaps eat out??)
Turkey Pot Pie
What are you having this week?
