Local Box Meal Plan: June 14-18

First blueberries of the season are here, from Dr. Blueberry! Along with:

Carrots – Montecino
Swiss chard – Texas Naturals
Basil – Ringger
Watermelon radishes – My Father’s Farm
Corn – Acadian
Green bell peppers – My Father’s Farm
Green beans – Naegelin
Potatoes – Home Sweet Farm
Cucumbers – Acadian
Peaches – Caskey
Tomatoes – ABJ Farm

So, I am making:

Watermelon radish and cucumber salad

Peach-basil sangria – I imagine you can replace with wine with Sprite or club soda for a non-alcoholic drink.

Blueberry overnight oats for breakfast – Overnight oats are awesome – no cooking required!. Just mix equal parts regular rolled oats, milk (I use almond milk) and yogurt (I use vanilla) and let sit in the fridge overnight. In the morning, add some berries and zap in the microwave for 30 seconds, just to take the chill out. Yum.

Vegetable-beef soup – Sub your fresh corn and green beans for the canned and frozen ones in the recipe, and add a few handfuls of chopped chard.

Stuffed bell peppers
