After a 6 month hiatus from my organic food box delivery as a result of a move and a lovely summer and fall spent purchasing my goods from my neighbourhood farmer's market, I have finally resumed purchasing food boxes. My first one arrived on Thursday and I am so excited to see what new meals I will discover as I try to eat through each box!
This week I received: apples, onions, parsnip, pears, sunchokes, bananas, celery, kale and salad mix. My plans for all of these lovely fruits and veggies?
- gnocchi with kale (kale)
- vanilla baked pears (pears)
- apple-parsnip soup (apples, parsnips and onions)
- chocolate-chip banana muffins (bananas)
- salads with celery and salad mix (with some celery left for snacking)
The sunchokes? I have no idea . . . even after searching google for recipes, nothing appeals. I think that this vegetable may be going the way of the kiwi and the avocado (which reside on my "never send" list). If you are familiar with this tuber, please advise.
I love my root veggies, but what the heck?
