In this week’s bag:
- hydroponic heirloom tomatoes
- green beans
- squash blossoms
- spring onions
Better late to post this than never, right? I am just getting around to seeing these veggies for the first time myself on this late and warm Sunday afternoon. The beau and I were in Hudson for the entire day yesterday, vending at the Hudson River Exchange put on by Etsy. And after our week of traveling, I’m finally ready to dive in and enjoy the freshness.
I had big hopes for the squash blossoms, wanting to stuff them with some sort of “cheesy” veggie mix, however, I think we waited too late. Only three of them aren’t mush (I placed the pretty, non-mushy ones on top), so, they’ll probably end up fried and added to a salad.
I would like to spiral the zucchini and make a quick and flavorful red sauce using the tomatoes to top things off. I’ll most likely use the onions in this sauce too! The kale will for sure end up in our morning shakes and these blueberries are so sweet, we’ll probably just enjoy them by the handful as a snack throughout the rest of the evening.
Which leaves me with the green beans, the one veggie I never know what to do with. I can only tolerate a certain amount of them at a time but I do enjoy them sauted with garlic, lemon juice and crushed red pepper; so that’ll be a side dish at least twice this week.
I mustn’t chat for too long; I’ve got half of the apartment left to clean before I can start talking about dinner. I’ve said it before but when I have a clean home/apartment, I seem to have a clearer mind with more motivation to not only eat well, but workout too. My goal is to start off this normal week (no travels planned) as clean as possible in all aspects of my life. Cheers to a happy, healthy and active week my friends!
