|Persimmons & Italian Cucumber Melon|
I got this box early this week (and STILL am late to post ugh) because i helped out Greenling by being filmed for a segment for MSNBC - they wanted to film a delivery and i was available! It was very fun, but i woke up at 6:20 am this morning to watch the segment and the Greenling part wasn't on! Waiting to find out if it will be on another day, will keep you posted.
Red Radish bunch
Italian Cucumber Melon
Gren Shallots Bunch
I had just bought a bunch of apples so i have an abundance - thinking i will make this very fall like Apple Crisp! yum
Radishes in salads - the greens i'm feeding to Drizzle the guinea pig - he loves them!
Persimmons - never in my life have i had or even touched one! They scare me still, but i googled :) - I cut one up and tasted, it tasted good, sweet, kind of rich. Not sure i would reach for one when craving a fruit. I'm going to try cutting up with a pear and a bit of plain coconut yogurt....
Bok Choy - not a huge huge bok choy fan - but i made this Apple Bok Choy salad before and it's one of my fave things
Italian Cucumber Melon - I'm actually stumped on this one - i guess i need to cut it open and see what it's like. is it a cucumber or a melon??? (see pic above with the persimmons)
Broccoli Crown - my kids are broccoli lovers so steamed and served
Summer Squash - quite a bit of zucchini so this Grilled Zucchini & Tomato Casserole looks amazing, but i'm also tempted to make these Zucchini Pancakes, i'm in a pancakey mood lately
Green Shallots - salads, or stir fried with greens
Sweet Potatoes - quite a few of these - this Sweet Potato Lenti Chili may be perfect for Halloween night dinner pre trick or treat!
Also this week i was invited to a Fall Tasting preview from Greenling - to try some of the new seasonal recipe kits - there was a minestroni soup which was delish, a quinoa salad that i totally forgot to photograph that i ate two servings of - but when that becomes available it will have chicken with it so a no go for me, i may look it up when it comes out and replicate :)
But another stand out recipe kit dish was this Acorn Squash coconut curry - so good and it seemed like the kind of thing i would shy away from for being complicated, so I will have to buy this kit! here's a pic:
