Thank you all for the wonderful, thoughtful comments on my migraine post. I have been working with a nutritionist and a new doctor to get these episodes under control. I appreciate everyone sending their good wishes my way, I certainly needed them, as I had back to back migraine episodes and had to get some serious "horse tranquillizer" at the Emergency Room just to be able to sleep. I highly recommend it, NOT!
Back to work this week, playing catch up and sorting through tons of emails. Also trying to get the kitchen back in shape after Fly Guy and The Reluctant Teenager had to fend for themselves for 11 days.
I have did manage to pick up my produce basket on Saturday, what a load of stuff we got this time around. So much that I will not have to buy for at least two weeks!
Mmm. pickling cucumbers are perfect for sandwiches. Can't wait to steam the asperagas tonight for dinner. It's Fly Guy's favorite.
I am seeing some salsa in our near future! Tomorrow perhaps? Avocados still hard as a rock. Trying to rippen them with paper bag and apple method.
Limes and tomatillos. I have only made tomatillo salsa once, and really liked it, however this time I am going to roast the tomatillos first then make a chunky salsa instead of a sauce.
Being a huge fresh fruit fan, I was thrilled to see citrus,pears and pink lady apples in the fruit portion of the basket. Bosc, Bartlett and Anjou pears...
Pink Lady Apples, Organic Bananas, tangelos
Ruby Red Grapefruit. This is so sweet it's like eating an orange.
I am thankful to be able to participate in a produce co-op, the savings are astronomical. The co-op I belong to is called Bountiful Baskets and is in, Arizona, Idaho, Utah and Washington. This is not a CSA, Community Supported Agriculture where participants purchase a membership and receive a share(box or bag) of the seasonal produce each week throughout the farming season.
Glad to be back, will be posting more frugal tips, finds, and treasures this week. Be sure to check back for a giveaway coming up this weekend.
