DFW Local Box: Summer Days

Summer is officially here! Picnics? Check. Lake days? Check. Working for the weekend? Check. The Local Box will fuel you with nutrients for all those summer activities.

Week26-DFW-500

 

Meal one: With a few modifications this Quinoa Salad  will be a delight to enjoy this week. Use the  peaches in place of mango, chives in place of parsley, and top it off with fresh sweet corn right off the cob. This would be good over a bed of greens and with Cilantro Lime Dressing you can make from home using this weeks jalapenos.

Meal two: I am trying to become a better baker so this week I will practice with a  Blackberry Citrus Bread  or this gluten free Lemon Lavender Blackberry Bread recipe. Either recipe makes for a great snack or breakfast on the go.

Meal three: Soups aren’t always the most appealing during hot summer days but I find the warm comfort food can still be great especially when you take them for lunch the next day and your office building is sub-arctic. Use the mixed squash, carrots, slicing tomatoes, and Egyptian spinach for a Seven Vegetable Minestrone Soup.

DFW Local Box: Feel The Beet of The World

USA, USA, USA! The World Cup is in full swing and with that comes a sense that the whole world is connected by these games. With big sporting events like the World Cup comes gatherings and with gathering comes food!

10478191_657672490976063_3512588808214347279_n

Meal one: Use the World Cup games (USA plays again Sunday) as an excuse to gather a group of friends and lure them in with snacks like White Bean-Green Garlic Dip. I will use the summer squash to make chips and slice the cucumbers up for dippers as well.

Meal two: Pizza is always a good party food. Even if it is just your family gathering for a game try Swiss Chard, Caramelized Onion and Ricotta Pizza. You can use your beet greens or chard greens and walla walla onions here. This pizza includes a homemade dough recipe. Props to doing everything from scratch but shortcuts are okay too. We are human and busy, so if you don’t have time to make your own dough you can always use your favorite organic pizza crust.

Meal three: With the World Cup in Brazil it might be fun to tap into their culture. How about we try a Brazilian Potato Salad. With the potatoes I will make a Peach & Escarole Salad.

Meal four: After all that cheering you are going to need a beverage. Use the plums and blackberries for a Plum Blackberry Cocktail. Use the rest of your blackberries and basil for a  Grilled Fontina+Blackberry Basil Smash Sandwich.
