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.

Local Box Meal Plan: April 5-9

We get a batch of juicy strawberries this week –theĀ  first of the season! I’m using them in this Spring Strawberry Pie, which gets a unique flavor from a touch of balsamic vinegar. The entire box consists of:

So I’m making:

Spinach and carrot quiche (recipe to come in your Local Box)

Smothered mushrooms and kale

Hearts of palm and red onion salad with citrus vinaigrette (subbing salad greens for the spinach, unless I have some left over from the quiche)

Chinese spring onion pancakes to accompany a beef and bok choy hot pot
