Sunday, Kevin and I gloriously slept in, then watched James Bond and got some laundry and knitting done. I was able to prep a bit of food for this week to hopefully keep me on track this week (but more on that in tomorrow's post).
I'm kicking myself for forgetting to take a picture of my Bountiful Basket in its entirety this weekend, but here is a quick picture of my fairly full fridge (note that some things are Kevin's like the milk, eggs, and yogurt) and a list of what came in the basket this week:
- 1 large head green leaf lettuce (it is hidden in my VegiBag to the left on my middle shelf)
- 3 leeks
- 1 bag carrots
- 1 bag small green apples
- 1 bag mandrin oranges
- 1 acorn squash
- several large golden potatoes
- several medium tomatoes
- several very green bananas that will be ripe in a decade ;)
- 1 bundle of spinach
- 1 pineapple
I don't think that I will be getting a Bountiful Basket this week, as I feel like I have enough produce to get through as it is, and Kevin and I might be taking a trip to Montana to see my brother and lovely pregnant-with-twins sister in law. I have a few things that I have been knitting for the babies that I hope to finish in time for when we see them next.
Tonight I will be utilizing some of my BB produce from this week and last week with a recipe from Dr. Fuhrman's Member Center: Asparagus, Mushroom, and Leek Ragout
I'm sorry, but the recipe link will only work for Dr. Fuhrman Members! If you don't already have a membership, it is only $3.95 a month for the Silver Membership (which I have), and it gives you access to many tools including discussion forums, and my favorite, all of Dr. Fuhrman's most popular recipes. I believe on the website he has over 1000. I would highly recommend it when the cost is less than the cost of a latte per month (not that we drink those liquid calories anyways).
I'll make sure to post pictures of how the recipe came out! Until tomorrow.... :)
