Local Produce Box: Week 10

So much goodness in this week's box: cabbage, cantaloupe, corn, field tomatoes, grape tomatoes, cucumber, pears, carrots, purple beans, potatoes, green pepper, and onion.

With this week's box being very similar to last week's, I didn't try any new recipes, but simply remade some of our favorite dishes. One night we even had an entire dinner prepared from what came in our box: Balsamic Honey Roasted Cabbage Steak (try this, it is delicious, and an excellent way to get cabbage into your diet), roasted potatoes (nothing fancy, just olive oil, salt, and pepper), and Tomato and Cucumber Salad (I was going to add basil from the garden, but it was pouring rain so I could not go outside). This was a lighter dinner, but with it being so hot outside, it was perfect.
As for the other produce we just ate it as it came: cantaloupe for dessert, grape tomatoes and carrots dipped in hummus, steamed beans, sliced pears...

I'm sure I sound like a broken record saying this again and again, but I love having all this produce available to us. It is local, and tasty (the way food is supposed to taste actually), and with all this in my fridge every week I am spending less time and money at the grocery store...

Tomorrow we pick up our next box....I'm excited to see what is inside.

I can not believe how much of a foodie I've become...
