Local Box Meal Plan: Dec. 27-31

We’re not getting the video until tomorrow, so this meal plan is based off the list you received in your newsletters Friday. I’ll post the video here as soon as it’s ready.

UPDATE: Video added below.

Avocados – G&S
Arugula – Naegelin
Red Leaf Lettuce – Acadian
Red Beets – Naegelin
Sweet Potatoes – Various
Cabbage – My Father’s Farm
Onions – Naegelin
Mixed Superfood Greens – My Father’s Farm
Parsley – My Father’s Farm
Green Shallots – Green Gate

Some menu items for you to try:

Avocado green goddess dressing – Add a handful of parsley to this recipe, and use your green shallots in place of the green onions. This dressing would be great on a salad made with your red leaf lettuce and arugula.

Salmon with scalloped sweet potatoes – I’d use butter in place of margarine here, but otherwise this recipe looks pretty good as written.

Braised beets and cabbage – Would make a good side dish for roasted meat. Use your regular cabbage in place of the red called for here.

Pasta with sausage and greens – The recipe calls for collards, but use whatever hearty greens you get in your mixed bag.

I suspect we may have a lot of arugula and parsley to use up, so try this arugula-parsley pesto if that ends up being the case for you.
