I enjoyed cooking from this box for two reasons. First, we had not gotten a box for a long time, and it was fun figuring out new recipes. Second, it is summer! No tomatoes yet, but we did get cucumber, cantaloupe, corn, and summer squash.
I cooked with almost everything in this box. We ate the peaches as snacks and the lettuce in salads, but everything else went into a dish. I used onion and cucumber in this Grilled Tomato, Onion, and Bread Salad from allrecipes.com. I used the last onion in this Quinoa and Black Beans side dish.
Here are the recipes I shared:
- Chicken, Broccoli, and Carrot Stir Fry
- Spicy Grilled Corn
- Grilled Squash
- Plum Berry Ice Cream
- Herb, Cantaloupe, and Cucumber Salad
I’m looking forward to our next box. Summer is in full swing now. We were told to expect tomatoes this week. We are also getting eggplant. Not normally our favorite, but I found an eggplant chip recipe I want to try. Please send me suggestions for tomatoes and eggplant; I’ll need lots!
