Fresh Fork Week #7

Friday, July 13

I am a little late posting about this week because we were too busy enjoying my in-laws visit this weekend. The very good news is that we were able to eat a bunch of the basket over the weekend.

Here is the haul:

Red Potatoes – 3#
Beets w/ tops
Peas – 1 qt
Blueberries – 1 pt
Candy Onion
Whole Chicken

We ate the red potatoes with 2 different dinners over the weekend roasted with a candy onion. By the way, roasting veggies in general are amazing!! I don’t know why I don’t do it more often! The onions were really sweet and yummy. We roasted some zucchini also with a little bit of salt and pepper, and Parmesan cheese on it. Next time I think I want to broil them a little bit more to get them a bit crispier. We roasted the beets for a salad to go with dinner last night and they were yummy too. It was an experiment as both Shirley, my mother-in-law and I had never done it before. However, I realized that beets shrink down a lot and I should not cut them as small next time. Other than that they turned out great! We made the chicken on the Traeger grill last night and it was very good! We will eat the rest of the items raw.

Happy Eating!

  1. I think our Fresh Fork dinner was superb! Loved the beet salad and will be doing the potatoes and sweet onions for sure. Need to know the measurements/ingredients for the beet salad when you have time. It was delish! as was the entire meal!
