This weeks basket truly met with all our expectations. I was just thinking I would love to get some fresh garlic..look do you see it? Just what did we get?
1 Butternut Squash
3 Green Peppers
5 HUGE carrots
2 lbs. Redmore Oranges
So far I have plans for most of this basket. We still had pineapple left from last week, and I just picked up some fresh salmon so one evening we will have salmon with Butternut Squash Casserole.
I think I will try a new recipe for stuffed peppers, any ideas? Leave a comment letting me know.
Papa loves asparagus, so that is for dinner tonight with chicken breasts and a tossed salad.
Can you see carrot salad down the road? I still have a few of the yellow carrots left from last weeks basket, now toss in a few raisins and a nice flavorful dressing. (A little tidbit I use to beg my grandma to make carrot salad everyday for lunch, it has always been my most favorite salad)
The rest we will just eat, well I have enough fruit I might make a fresh fruit salad. As for the garlic I can always find a use for fresh garlic.
How do I keep my vegetables and fruits fresh for so long? Let me tell you I swear by the Tupperware FridgeSmart Containers.
Believe it or not I have kept Spinach and Lettuce just as fresh as the day I purchased it for over a month in these handy containers. I absolutely love them. Now I need to purchase some more.
