Fresh Fork – Week 17

Fri, Sept 25

So for the first time this season I had Mike go and pick up our basket as I was busy picking up race stuff at the Akron Marathon Expo. So, the picture below was the vision of my hubby. I’m not criticizing. I’m just giving credit where credit is due! I think we just have different visions, but I’m VERY glad he took the pic for me!

Here is the detailed list:
Butternut Squash & Sage Linguine
Yukon Gold Potatoes – 2#
Carrots w Tops – 1 bunch
Butternut Squash – 1
Onion – 1
Beets – 1 bunch
Zucchini – 2 ct
Green Peppers – 2 ct
Kohlrabi – 1 bulb
Cherry Tomatoes – 1 pint

The zucchini are yellow squash instead and I did not see a kohlrabi in the basket unless I missed something. We should be able to eat through this basket with not too much problem except for the beets. I’ll see what I can whip up in a salad, however.

Last week I was a cooking fool! I made tons of zucchini bread, stuffed peppers, made a ratatouille, baked spaghetti squash for lunch for work, made butternut squash soup and made a beet and kale salad! Whew! I really liked it all! I don’t have lots of ideas for cooking with the items in this basket this week except or the potatoes and the carrots. Oh and I do plan on roasting the butternut squash to toast in with the linguine. The rest will will have raw in salads or sides. This is going to be another really busy week at work so the plan is to make some things ahead of time and use the crockpot for the boys. Happy Eating!

One thought on “Fresh Fork – Week 17”

  1. Looks like a nice basket–lots of good stuff. Beets–have you tried roasting them? I think Laura just oiled them with the skins on and then slipped the skins off (not sure of this). Have a fun, busy and blessed week! Love ya!
