Local Box, 08.06.2008

This week’s Local Box arrived light in heft (no watermelon!) but heavy on inspiring ingredients.  Here’s a snapshot of my plans for the week:

  • The Olympics kick off tomorrow night, so we’re planning to stir fry some eggplant, summer squash, peppers, and garlic chives for a China-themed dinner.
  • I’m dying to try okra “coo coo” using the recipe Shannon recommended in her comments to this post.
  • And I can’t wait to make PDugan’s zucchini Parmigiana, either, which will also require some Local Box parsley!

Do you have any summery great ways with sweet potatoes to recommend this week?

  1. My favorite thing to use sweet potatoes for is African Sweet Potato and Peanut soup. It can be served either warm or cold. I used my sweet potatoes from the box last week for this recipe and I just finished off the last of it today at lunch.
