(Note from Local Box blogger Kathryn: The format of the Local Box menu is changing to include more recipes and a full week’s worth of dinner menus. I plan my meals by the day so that I’m sure to use up delicate items, like cream peas, while they are freshest. I also try to put more difficult recipes on weekends when I have more time to cook. My meal plans always start on Wednesdays, since that’s when my Local Box arrives.
