THE BREAKDOWN – WHAT I SCORED & WHAT I PLAN TO MAKE:
1 head Cauliflower: Last week I opted to use this for a more healthy choice, and this week it’s quite the opposite – as I’m planing on frying these florets up and pairing it with a flavorful yogurt sauce (kind of like this).
1 bunch Carrots: Perhaps I’ll try this recipe out this week.
1 bag Sugar Snap Peas: I am cooking these sweet peas up tonight for dinner: a fried brown rice & shrimp dish.
4 ears of Corn: This corn is SO GOOD. I used an ear yesterday, raw, in my salad. And probably will continue to add it to salads and such for the rest of the week.
1 bunch Leeks: I love leeks! Since they are part of the onion family, they’re great in just about everything. I sliced them up and used some in these petit crab cakes I made over the weekend.
4 baskets Strawberries: Strawberries are so sweet and succulent right now! If you love margaritas (which, who doesn’t?!) whip up a fresh strawberry margarita like I did last night. Just muddle some fresh, sliced strawberries with mint and lime juice (if you don’t have a muddler, just use the back of a wooden spoon!). Then add a touch of simple syrup (simmer equal parts sugar and water until the sugar dissolves), silver tequila, shake with ice, and top with club soda. Voila! Heaven in a cup.
Hope everyone has a fab week!
