Due to the Texas weather, that testy mistress, we’ve had to make some Local Box changes to ensure only the best in local produce goes out in our friendly green bins. So, folks will be receiving either watermelon radishes or grape tomatoes in their boxes this week. Which means we have plenty of ingredients for a delicious week long menu.
Here’s what I’ll be cooking:
Meal One: I’ll start off with a pea salad made with those wonderful looking southern peas. The great thing is I can use one big radish or a few little tomatoes cut in half for this recipe and serve it over a bed of lettuce and microgreens.
Meal Two: Peaches have been in the Local Box for a couple weeks now, but I have yet to make a peach crisp. What have I been thinking? Our local peaches are a little smaller than the ones in this recipe, so I’ll probably half it and sub lime juice for lemon juice. So tasty!
Meal Three: Summer squash gratin is delicious and that’s really all you need to know! Just halve the recipe and throw in some thinly sliced spring onions and you wont regret it.
Meal Four: Pickles are one of my favorite foods, but I don’t like buying them at the store. Homemade pickles are really simple and yield much tastier results than their commercial cousins.
