You might have read how I recently started receiving a produce delivery from From the Farmer, or seen an abundance of fun food shots on my Instagram. I thought I’d give you a little update on how it’s going.
I receive the single bushel and that is the perfect amount of produce for a week as long as I revolve my recipes around it. I actually like having to find and make recipes based on what I receive. It makes it a lot easier when you need to eat something before it goes bad — so you just eat it! Makes recipe planning easier for me.
If I have a more than I can fix I’ll usually juice whatever I can — like this morning I had kale, nectarines, and apples that all needed to be consumed so I made juice for my husband and I.
If I go out of town or we are gone for the weekend, I’d recommend going down to the half bushel or just pausing for the week. My Mr. isn’t one to fix veggies for himself, so if we go three days without eating some of them, they pile up and go to waste which is no bueno.
I’ve made so many recipes I would have never made before. I’ve also made a lot of fresh salsa. I don’t even like salsa, but my husband and friends are scarfing it down!
Not being the most seasoned chef, I enlisted my friend and registered dietitian Carlene to help me make some recipes with the food from my basket. Being the photo stylists Carlene and I are, we decided to have Abby shoot the recipes in her gorgeous new kitchen.
Carlene’s Tomatillo Cucumber Cocktail recipe is featured over on Camille Styles (my BFF from college!) so make sure to head over there to get the full scoop!
More recipes from our shoot coming around the web soon!
