Whoops, I'm a little slow getting this up. I barely had time to pick up my Bountiful Basket yesterday, much less decide what I'm going to do with it and blog about it! Tonight my husband is finally on his way home after being gone for a week, so I figured I better get a meal plan in place so I can feed him this week!
This week's basket included honeydew melon, red pears, lemons, apricots, blackberries, bananas, corn, onions, tomatoes, a cucumber, carrots, green peppers, and cauliflower. Nothing too exotic, so it should be pretty easy to use up! Here are my plans:
Honeydew: cut up and keep in the fridge to snack on
Pears: salt and eat
Lemons: lemon coconut cookies, freeze juice for later use
Apricots: smoothies, eat as is
Blackberries: smoothies, blackberries & cream
Bananas: tropical banana bread, banana cream pie, smoothies
Corn: steam and eat
Onions: It's a good thing onions last for a while because we don't really eat onions and there are tons of them. I can only make so much salsa. Maybe I'll branch out and try onion rings.
Tomatoes: bacon tomato sandwiches, salsa
Cucumber: Fritos salad, slice and dip in hummus
Carrots: meatloaf, cut into sticks and eat with hummus
Green peppers: stuffed peppers, Fritos salad
Cauliflower: I would normally roast it, but this week I want to try a new recipe for cheesy cauliflower pancakes!
