Weekly Meal Plan and Recipe Ideas

This Week’s Basket from Milk and Honey Organics Included: Green Beans, N.C. Covington Yams, Rainbow Chard, Brussels Sprouts, Fuji Apples, Hurricane Creek Tomatoes, Yellow Onions, Grapefruit, Green Leaf Lettuce, Garlic, Sunburst Tangerines, and Blueberries. What a colorful basket!

Some of you may be thinking, “Brussels Sprouts?! Really!? Who eats Brussels Sprouts?!” This poor vegetable has earned a bad rap, especially among kids. My personal opinion is that if you’re thinking that, you’ve never had Brussels Sprouts prepared properly. I don’t know about you, but as soon as I took the picture of this week’s basket’s, I put everything else away, and immediately cleaned the Brussels Sprouts and cut them in half, pan frying them with salt, pepper and garlic in a combination of butter and olive oil. Yum!

Recipe: Tri-Colored Taters

Look at these beautiful vegetables! It was almost too pretty to roast, but I did it anyway.

Thinly slice 4 small organic red potatoes, 2 organic purple yams, and 1-2 organic sweet potatoes. Line in a greased baking dish. Drizzle with organic olive oil and season with seasoned salt, freshly ground black pepper and freshly chopped parsley and organic garlic.  Bake at 350F for 30 minutes, then increase temperature to 425F and continue roasting for 15-30 more minutes.

Bon Appetit! ~Melissa
