Vegan Local Box 10/6

This box has a weird new item for me - sweet potato greens! They are very beautiful and don't look edible.
Also lots of fruit - nice!

here's the list:
Asian Pears
Assorted Peppers
Bibb Lettuce
Sweet Potato Greens
Spaghetti Squash

So happy for a final fling with Cantaloupe, i miss it the most when it's not summer.

The recipe sheet that came with the box actually has 2 recipes that i think i will use - one of them is Okra & Greens  - altho i reserve the right to not - as chopping Okra kind of annoys me, so sticky - so i may roast the okra again and just saute the greens like any other...
The other is Garlic & Shallot Spaghetti Squash - i just won't use the parmesan. Excited for Spaghetti Squash!

I realized with the last few boxes that i'm not a giant eggplant fan, i thought i was for some reason, maybe it was memories of eggplant parmesan from the past - so i'm gonna try something completely different & from one of my fave cook book writers Isa Chandra Moskowitz so see if i can't turn that around. The recipe is Ceaser Salad with Eggplant Bacon from her Appetite for Reduction cookbook.

My son has been asking for the raspberry lime muffins i was making earlier this year so will probably use some limes for that, they also make their way into salad dressings & juices too.

I'm always at a loss for the peppers - i gotta get creative! Maybe a pico de gallo? there's a bunch!
