Ketchup - which really means Catch Up

I can't believe how behind i am, i think it's been two or three boxes that i haven't written about! So i'm just gonna post some pics of the things i've made over the past few weeks then start with listing today's local box

roasted beets & carrots on a bed a lettuce

two weeks ago i grilled beets

One box we got a bag of mixed greens, so i sauteed them with  onions & garlic

The grilled beets were good in this pasta salad

I also have been using limes from the box on everything - especially some delicious papaya i bought.

So in yesterday's 5/3/12 local box i got:

Grape Tomatoes - YAY - i buy these weekly anyway for my salads, and these are like candy you can just pop in your mouth - sweet

Snow Peas - never had these in a box before! Will probably stir fry with other stuff, something asian-y

Summer Squash - again i will probably stir fry these



Green Cabbage

Red Beet Bunch

Carrot Bunch - i love when we get the carrots with the greens attached, or rather Drizzle the guinea pig loves it!


Grapefruit - had one for breakfast this morning! delish - one of my joys in life is a GOOD grapefruit knife

Ok, i just mentioned how i used grape tomatoes in my salads, well i just read the recipes that come with the box and it had Roasted Grape Tomatoes recipe - i made these last year and OMG, love them so much i may have to do that

Last box i roasted the beet & carrot and made that salad above, it was so good i have been craving it since then so i be un-advenetrous and stick with that!

Cabbage - i really want to make a coleslaw with this - this one looks amazing Vegan Cole Slaw - I LOVE pistachios and i will just use green cabbage only

Kale - i tend to just sautee but i found in my Appetite for Reduction cookbook a section about making "bowls to go" for taking lunch with you - i'm planning on actually being at the Austin Fine Properties offices more and working from there so need to plan like this - Mexican Kale Bowl has brown rice, black beans, steamed kale, steamed sweet potato, Red Velvet Mole sauce & cilantro.  The Mole sauce looks a little labor intensive for my usual ways but too yum to pass up

Snow Peas - i want this! Thai Style Tofu & Snow Peas on noodles - craving these kind of rich sauces lately -weird seeing as it's so hot already

Summer Squash - i'm extremely tempted to make this Grilled Tofu w/Summer Squash & Soba Noodles - my son loves when i use the grill and it just looks so delish - but i must caveat that i likely will get lazy and just stir fry or steam and eat with something else.

happy eating!
