Local Box Meal Plan: May 23-27

Peaches AND blackberries in the same box? I think it’s safe to say that summer has really arrived!

Peaches – Lund Produce
Blackberries – Wheeler Farm
Fiesta Beets – Tecolote Farm
White Onion – Gundermann Acres
Mixed Carrots – Lund Produce
Flat Leaf Parsley – Tecolote Farm
Corn – Acadian Family Farm
Radish Bunch – My Father’s Farm
Red & Green Basil – My Father’s Farm
Romaine Lettuce – Bar W

 

Peach-blackberry compote with basil syrup – An awesome summer dessert.

Corn and carrot salad with golden raisins – This is going to be a great side dish for something grilled.

Ginger chicken Romaine wraps – Add some sliced basil to these.

Chilled beet and onion salad – Add some sliced radishes to this to add a little bite.

Local Box Meal Plan: May 31-June 4

We get a new fruit this week: plums from My Father’s Farm! In addition to:

  • Blackberries from Naegelin or Oak Hill Farms
  • Beets from Ringger
  • Mangoes from G&S Groves
  • Green beans from Acadian
  • Miniature plums from My Father’s Farm
  • Basil from Ringger
  • Cherry tomatoes from Naegelin
  • Green bell peppers from My Father’s Farm
  • Red spring onions from My Father’s Farm
  • Squash (looks like acorn, possibly) from Acadian

So, I am making:

Beet-feta tart

Chicken-and-Brie Sandwiches with Roasted Cherry Tomatoes — I’m adding sliced basil to this and omitting the mayo, because you know how I loathe it.

Five-Spice Pork Chops with Grilled Plums

Garlic Pepper Chicken with Mango Green Bean Salad — I’m going to add thinly sliced red spring onion to the garlic and pepper in the first step.

Southwestern stuffed acorn squash — Try adding veggie “meat” crumbles instead of the sausage for a vegetarian dish, and sub green bell pepper for the red.

Lime Yogurt Cake with Blackberry Sauce

Local Box Meal Plan: May 17-21

We get blackberries this week! Along with:

Salad mix — My Father’s Farm
Red Swiss chard — Acadian
Red radishes — My Father’s Farm
Sweet corn — J&B Farms
Red or gold beets — Ringger
Red romaine or escarole — Tecolote
Parsley or garlic chives — Tecolote
Carrots — Acadian or Ringger

So, I am making:

Blackberry limeade
Sauteed Swiss chard and corn — It’s hard to find lemon thyme, so just use regular thyme instead.
If I get garlic chives: Pork With Garlic Chives in Lettuce Cups
Italian Wedding Soup — Garnished with chopped parsley.

And a few salads:
Tossed romaine and orange salad
Roasted beet salad with cocoa vinaigrette
