Local Box Meal Plan – May 24-28

We get TWO kinds of fruit this week, which makes me cheer — peaches from Lundgren and mangoes from G&S, in addition to:

Romaine — Wiley Farms
Green beans — Acadian
Radicchio — Tecolote
Carrots — Acadian
Broccoli greens — Montecino
Elephant garlic
Yellow onions — Ringger
Red or Yukon gold potatoes — Oak Hill Farms

So, I will be making:

Grilled lettuces — No, seriously. Radicchio is fairly bitter, and what do I always say to do to tame bitter veggies? Cook ’em! This recipe is fast and awesome. One thing though — make grilled lettuces to order. They do not reheat well.

Crockpot pot roast braised with onions, carrots, chopped broccoli greens, and potatoes — I’ll be adding the veggies to this recipe. Nothing like coming home from work to a house that smells like heaven, thanks to dinner cooking unattended while you were out.

Dijon green beans

Vanilla-poached peaches — Depending on how many peaches we get, I’ll probably make this minty bulgur wheat and peach salad, too.

Grilled corn with mango-habanero butter — I tend to prefer mango as an accompaniment rather than the star of the meal, but if you love mango, this mango pie with crystallized ginger is fantastic.
