Week 39 - Happy New Year

Given that it's a holiday week, I'm going to enjoy my week's vacation and play things a bit by ear.  We'll have a big Christmas dinner with some family in from out-of-town which will allow us to borrow heavily from the box, and many of this week's goodies can be enjoyed almost anytime.  Wishing you and yours a very happy holiday season, and happy new year!  I hope that 2012 has many more cooking adventures in store for us and our box.

In the box this week
(top) lettuce, spinach, celery, holiday herb mix (rosemary, marjoram, thyme)
(bottom) pumpkin, green beans, carrots, poblano peppers, tangerines, apples, strawberries, strawberry jam

Meals/recipes for the week
I rarely talk about the fruit that we receive, as it primarily gets eaten as is and doesn't require any recipe intervention.  That said, it seemed appropriate to take a moment to say that the apples, tangerines and strawberries have really been amazing even though it's the middle of winter.  Makes us all remember how lucky we are to have access to what we have year round in California!
This week's title is inspired by the song of the same name from Rent by Jonathan Larson.
