Organics to You February 8, 2010

by sherri on February 8, 2010

I’ve been rather lax the past few weeks, just not as much time. Starting over again this week.

Today’s box from Organics to You contains:

  • Head of Romaine lettuce
  • some broccoli
  • A bunch of carrots
  • 2 enormous yellow potatoes
  • 1 leek
  • celery
  • spinach
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 yellow onion
  • cauliflower
  • 3 Enterprise apples
  • 3 Bosc pears
  • 3 red pears
  • 3 Mandarins
  • 4 kiwis

From last week the fridge still contains:

  • some lettuce
  • some broccoli
  • 2 carrots
  • spinach
  • several potatoes
  • some red beets
  • piles of apples
  • 2 Bosc pears
  • 3 mandarins
  • several kiwis
  • celery
  • green onions
  • a red onion+
  • 2 yellow onions
  • green, curly kale
  • head of cauliflower
The Compost Pail of Shame (what I didn’t use and had to compost):
  • A couple of oranges
  • some kale
  • some spinach
  • probably some other things, but I haven’t kept track

In the past few weeks Christie has reminded me that fresh, squeezed OJ is a great way to use up an enormous pile of oranges & mandarins – yum! I need to make applesauce, that’s the best way to deal with all the apples. I made a huge pot of stew that we actually managed to eat nearly all of! There’s been roasted cauliflower and potatoes with tempeh and several gorgeous salads. Stir-fry dishes have been showing up regularly too.

This week I’m thinking aloo gobi and a dal of some sort, perhaps tomorrow night. We have such an enormous pile of potatoes and now 2 heads of cauliflower, plus so many onions, that it will be a great way to use up a bunch. Maybe I’ll even surprise my two Indian co-workers with some to take home. I’m going to keep trying to make us salads in the evening to have for lunch the next day — keeps on top of the lettuce and is a nice way to get some extra veggies eaten. We’re planning a picnic on Sunday (in the car if it is pouring or someplace with a shelter, so I might make some potato salad & perhaps a bunch of tofu/broccoli stir-fry. All the mandarins might go into fresh juice for the Valentine’s Day mimosas we’re planning!
