I am loving my new microplane zester! I have to say it is officially the best thing ever. Can't wait to make more recipes that call for lemon, lime or orange zest!

Oven Roasted Potatoes!

Okay, maybe it is a boring thing to post about oven-roasted potatoes, but I made some and they were good! And I finished the last of my Boston Organics potatoes. The recipe called for a lot of spices, I did not have the basil or the dill weed so I left them out and did everything else the same, it was still good! I actually wonder if it would be too busy with the basil and the dill weed! So now I am down to one small head of broccoli, which I will use to make the Double Broccoli Quinoa again since I have a fair amount of pesto left, 2 carrots (which will be come Sweet Potato, Carrot, Apple and Red Lentil Soup, hope it's good!), mushrooms (thai green curry?), beets (side-dish?), and watermelon radishes (south indian sambar?). Hope I can finish all this food before it goes bad!

Double Broccoli Quinoa

Today I made the Double Broccoli Quinoa from 101 Cookbooks with the broccoli I got from Boston Organics. I was surprised at how delicious it was! It was SO GOOD! Luckily I have sauce leftover and some broccoli left over, so I will just steam some broccoli and make some more quinoa and voila! at least a few more meals... I will be making this recipe again for sure!

sopa de lentejas

I made my lentil soup again with carrots and potatoes, this time it turned out better than last time. I did add an extra 3/4 cup of lentils which makes the carrots and potatoes sparser, but I am not so happy about that! I think it is better because it is spicier (more cayenne) and the potatoes are starchier, which I like. I do have to say the carrots that I get from Boston Organics are pretty phenomenal. I still have a lot of produce left: 4 potatoes, 2 carrots, 2 heads of broccoli, 2 watermelon radishes, 4 beets, 1 box of mushrooms. I wonder if I can finish it all!

new shipment of boston organics today

Today I got a new shipment of boston organics. It's my first shipment after switching to the half fruit/half veggie box. Today I got:

1 lbs of Fuji Apples (3 of them)
1.5 lbs of bananas (5 of them)
3 Bosc pears
2 Temple oranges
3 Satsuma Mandarins
1 grapefruit
2 watermelon radishes
1 box of white mushrooms
1.5 lbs of potatoes (7 of them)
1 lbs carrots (4 of them)
2 heads of broccoli
1 lbs beets

Unsure what to do with this stuff! Kind of wish I got collard greens again to make the fab tofu recipe :)
