by Sherri Koehler on March 1, 2010

Today’s box from Organics to You contains:

  • chard
  • bunch of carrots
  • green curly kale
  • broccoli
  • red beets
  • 4 Russet potatoes
  • parsnips
  • 2 honey gold grapefruit
  • 3 navel oranges
  • 3 Enterprise apples
  • 3 D’anjou pears
  • 4 kiwis
  • a yellow onion
  • an avocado

From last week the fridge still contains:

  • red lettuce
  • some broccoli
  • carrots
  • 2 yams
  • leeks
  • Russet potatoes
  • beets
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 1 red onion
  • head of garlic
  • little bit of celery
  • 10 apples
  • 7 green pears
  • 2 honey gold grapefruit
  • 2 blood oranges
The Compost Pail of Shame (what I didn’t use and had to compost):
  • Spinach
  • a few kiwis (oops)
  • a tangerine
  • some chard
  • bok choy (which went off surprisingly quickly)

Made a great stir-fry with the chard last week and fried onion tofu from Uwajimaya. On Saturday I made another huge scramble with broccoli, carrots, celery, potatoes and tofu – we fed a houseguest & ourselves Saturday plus had plenty leftover for Sunday breakfast. Sunday night I made the delicious potato, broccoli & fresh herb soup in Veganomicon – a great way to use up broccoli stems! I also made a huge amount of fresh squeezed juice on Saturday which helped us up the citrus we had around. We actually ended up eating out a lot last week, so we had a lot more go into the compost.

Tonight I’m making the ruby beet pockets as well as some broccoli & tofu stir-fry for dinner. There’s a great rice casserole with chard in Veganomicon I’m going to try since we have the chard. Wednesday we’ll be at Ignite, so eating at the Bagdad. I’m going to try to make some kind of hearty dish easy to take to the Dharma Center on Thursday for our monthly get-together with our practice cohort.
