So I bought my very first “Good Food Box” yesterday. I paid $15 for 20lbs of fresh fruits and vegetables. The GFB is organized by a group of volunteers at different places around the city. The produce is all presorted in the boxes and you get what they give you. I got so many different kinds of produce that I wouldn’t normally buy. Here is a picture of what was in my food box:
I would never buy honeydew, zucchini, butternut squash or onions that are that huge. So now I have to figure out what kind of things I should make with them. I made butternut squash fries today and they were quite tasty. And now I have enough potatoes and radishes to choke a horse! LOL. I might make potato soup or something Does anyone know what to do with radishes besides put them in salad?
There were also two different kinds of oranges in the box. Does anyone know the names of them?
Peter and I think one might be a tangerine or something. I don’t know, we never really buy oranges, except those little cuties. We haven’t tasted them yet, so any ideas on what kinds they are??
I just hope that Peter and I eat all the produce before it all goes bad!
