Three days ago, we way way overdid it when buying produce.
Here’s what has gone down the hatch so far:
snacks: most of the green beans, 2 red bell peppers, 3 ears of corn
Monday lunch salad: the enormous head of lettuce, the rest of the green beans along with all the speckled white beans, the radishes (were blended up with red wine vinegar to make the dressing, and sliced on top)
Monday lunch side dish: radish greens sauteed with garlic
Drink: we blend up some of the spinach in Mackenzie’s carrot juice
Sunday dinner pizza: My whole wheat pizza crust, with homemade sauce, topped with broccoli, caramelized candy onion, spinach, roasted garlic, and portobello mushrooms sauteed with sage.
Monday dinner ratatouille over brown rice: 1 eggplant, 3 zucchini, 3 red bell peppers, 3 crookneck squash .
Oh, and we also consumed large amounts of fruit.
Here’s the updated list:
6 3 crookneck squash
green and yellow zucchini
huge head of lettuce
lots of chard
spinach (we never quite make it through 4 lbs without it going bad, but we did get a lot of use out of this bag 😦 )
1 crate of Sullen berries (uh, these were so gross we actually tossed the rest out. Oops.)
6 3 ears of corn
2 huge green bell peppers
10 poblano peppers
5 anaheim peppers
3 2 big eggplants
1 1/2 huge cantaloupe
1 candy onion w/stems
1 quart blueberries
1 big early crop apple
1 bunch radishes
1 bunch green onions
1 awesome looking heirloom tomato (tie-dyed something?)
1 bag of assorted green, whiteish, and purple beans (the purple ones need cooking, so they didn’t get munched on)
enormous almost-enormous head of broccoli
4 pounds strawberries
12 4 nectarines
6 1 red bell pepper s
4 3 1/2 pounds of dates
5 pounds of black grapes
8 3 clamshells of raspberries.
We definitely have some work left to do!
