Today’s box from Organics to You contains:

  • Curly red kale
  • bunch of chard
  • Big head of red lettuce
  • Bunch of red beets w/greens
  • another, larger head of red cabbage
  • more turnips
  • yellow onion
  • 2 bulbs of garlic
  • more potatoes
  • 3 red apples
  • 3 red pears
  • 3 green pears
  • 3 persimmons
  • 2 oranges

From last week the fridge still contains:

  • Lacinato (dinosaur) kale
  • turnips
  • yams
  • More gorgeous, tiny golden beets with equally glorious greens
  • a head of red cabbage
  • bunches of green onions (just don’t find a lot of uses for these – any suggestions?)
  • 3 yellow onions
  • 2 heads of garlic
  • flat, Italian parsley
  • nice carrots
  • celery
  • an avocado
  • an apple
  • 3 green pears
  • 2 persimmons
The Compost Pail of Shame (what I didn’t use and had to compost):
  • Another persimmon (from 11/16)
  • bok choi (11/16)
  • green curly kale (11/16)
  • salad greens (11/22)
  • satsumas (we just aren’t getting to our fruit!!)
Made a great lentil loaf last night and served with some garlic & lemon sauteed collard greens. Thanksgiving cooking helped us out with a lot of the veggies we had on hand, but we still had some things we had to toss. All in all, it seems like we’re not composting much more than we did when we shopped for produce regularly.

This week’s cooking will see some of the harvested spaghetti squash making an appearance on the menu as a side dish to something. A dish with cabbage in the works, there’s a whole lot of red cabbage in the fridge now. Going to try to make us some salads so we don’t end up tossing the lettuce the way the baby greens were.
