Eaters - 9.5 Compost - 0 Carry Over - 2.5
It was a busy holiday week, but we ended up enjoying most of our box all the same. We do have quite a few items to carry over into next week - some celery, green beans, peppers, spinach and strawberry jam - but since our farmer's market is closed this weekend and we won't be getting a new box, it's kind of nice to have a lot of 'raw' left overs. Not quite sure what I'm going to do to plan meals without the box; I've gotten so used to it as our inspiration. Nevertheless, we'll manage just fine until we get our first box of 2012 next weekend. Until then, happy new year!
- Everybody loved the pumpkin bread, which I embellished with a Jamie Oliver topping from another bread recipe that includes vanilla beans and tangerine zest. Yum!
- For our Christmas dinner, we enjoyed lemon roasted green beans and a blend of rosemary roasted vegetables, including carrots, potatoes and sunchokes. Beautiful and delicious.
- We also found a lovely Romanesco cauliflower at the farmer's market, and it reminded us of a Christmas tree. We used it to make a lovely and delicious green-colored mash along with a couple of yukon gold potatoes and roasted garlic.
