This Week’s Basket and Meal Plan

I found out last night that this will be our last basket indefinitely from Milk and Honey Organics, making this the last meal plan associated with their baskets. The owners have had another opportunity arise for their family, and we wish them the best, though we will definitely miss the colorful baskets, and partnering with them on their blog. I may still write a meal plan going forward, but it will likely be on a different night and using either farmers’ market or other produce items that fit within our budget. That being said, here’s this week’s meal basket:

This Week’s Basket Included Walla Walla Jumbo Onions, Rainbow Chard, Butter (Boston) Lettuce, Red Potatoes, Black Plums, Seedless Flame Grapes, Keitt Mangos, Bio-way Farm’s Cantaloupe, Parisi Farms’ Eggplant (mixed), Bio-way Farm’s Okra, Bio-way Farm’s Tomatoes, and Parisi Farms’ Jalapeño Peppers.
Meal Plan for Two (via Pepperplate.com):
 
Note: All recipes in the above meal plan can be found on the M&H Blog’s Recipes Archive page.

Recipes for this Week’s Meal Plan:

  • Carnitas with Black Beans and Cilantro Lime Rice (“Carnitas” not included in this week’s plan, but feel free to add it as a delicious accompaniment to your beans and rice!)
  • Tomato Egg Cups
  • For Cheesy Grits, follow package instructions and add 1/2 c. of shredded cheddar (or your favorite cheese) during the last 2 minutes of cooking; a few cloves of minced garlic is also a nice addition.
  • For the Garlic Toast, I highly recommend mincing fresh garlic and spreading it on your toast with butter before broiling. Yum!
  • Fettucine Alfredo (homemade Alfredo Sauce)
  • Brown Rice Bar (aka “Unfried Rice”) – a great way to use up leftovers!
  • And, see M&H’s Recipes Archive page!
  • Bananas make a great snack, or peel them and freeze them to add to a quick breakfast smoothie!

We had some special requests, since we already happened to have a bunch of stuff on hand, but M&H is good like that and doubles up on other things so you’re still satisfied! I can’t wait to make some bruschetta…or maybe tomato sauce with all those roams! And that bunch of blueberries is bigger than it looks! Here’s our basket:
