We had so much produce in our box this week that for about two minutes, I felt slightly panicked. Talk about getting our money’s worth!
– beets – Rumor has it that my husband the Brewmaster is brewing with beets…:-)
– purple peppers
– zucchini and squash – It is time for the tried and true zucchini bread recipe. I tried a chocolate chip one and it was a huge fail.
– celery – I immediately chopped it up and froze both the stalks and the leaves. Leaves for stock and flavoring, stalks for soups.
– tomatoes – The cherry ones are now part of a caprese salad in my fridge. Yum!
My FoodSaver bags will be hopefully arriving today, so I can process more veggies for our deep freeze. I bought a little handheld one off of Amazon and it works really well; I’ve noticed a difference in how everything freezes and thaws.
On a completely different note – and unrelated to cooking – I have purchased a steam mop. All I can say is “wow…why did I wait so long to purchase one?!” I’m in love.
