Organics to You December 14, 2009

by Sherri Koehler on December 14, 2009

Today’s box from Organics to You contains:

  • Lacinato kale (I think my fave type of kale)
  • Head of green lettuce
  • more broccoli
  • A bunch of lovely carrots, 3 colors
  • parsnips (yes!)
  • turnips
  • a yellow onion
  • 2 bulbs of garlic
  • gorgeous red potatoes
  • 3 red apples
  • 3 green apples
  • 2 green pears
  • 1 red pear
  • 2 oranges
  • 2 persimmons (I WILL figure out what to do with those this week)

From last week the fridge still contains:

  • yams
  • potatoes
  • some red cabbage
  • some shallot
  • 2 heads of garlic
  • a leek
  • 2 apples
  • 1 green pear
  • 1 red pear
  • 2 oranges
  • 3 tangerines
  • some broccoli stems
The Compost Pail of Shame (what I didn’t use and had to compost):
  • Those green onions

This week will see some simple roasted veggies (yams, parsnips & potatoes) with adzuki beans and I will be remaking the “Tres Hermanas” casserole which features winter squash, pinto beans simmered in adobo & tomatoes, and topped with garlic & cumin polenta. I have been asked to put together the recipe for that dish as well as the Italian version with white beans & fresh basil. I’m also considering a pear/apple cake from a recipe I was sent a few weeks ago. Christie is talking using the gorgeous red potatoes for a dish of mashed up ones (she came up with this cashew creme to add for Thanksgiving – pretty glorious). I’ve also been hankering for scalloped potatoes soon (maybe next week).
