In this week’s bag:
- baby bok choy
- concord grapes
- spaghetti squash
- salad mix
The other night while I was working at the store, there was a print party going on with a bunch of gals celebrating a friend’s birthday. They brought beer, wine, chips and salsa, a bean dip, fresh fruit and a DUN DUN DUN buffalo chicken dip. It was seriously difficult to avoid the snack table. Ever since that night, I’ve had a hankering for something buffalo… and when I saw what was in this week’s bag, I knew I’d make buffalo cauliflower! Paired with a big green salad, so good!
I still have the concord grapes from last week, so tonight I’m going to make grape juice as I clean the apartment. If I’m remembering correctly, they do need to simmer for a long time = the apartment is going to smell sweet. The peaches are great pre-running fuel and afternoon snacks- they surely won’t go to waste. The edamame will be boiled and seasoned to perfection. I personally like this “island” seasoning mix my mom brought back from the Caribbean a couple of years ago; it’s sweet, salty and a little bit smokey.
This weekend I’m going to be heading downstate to check out my little sister’s new house! She and her boyfriend bought a condo last month and I finally have a free weekend to go see the place and the city that she now calls home. My mom and I are leaving super early tomorrow and I’m bringing the spaghetti squash with me so that I can teach her how to cook it. I know that she doesn’t like squash, but I think this will be an exception. I love to bake it, then scrape it out and fry it up with fresh garlic and black pepper. Oh, how I love autumn root vegetables!
The three of us are going to head to the beach (the same one we visited last year) AND we are going to IKEA! Wahoo! My mom has never been and I have a bookshelf to pick up for the apartment. Super excited to get a home for the boxes of records filling up the living room and to have the record player up off the floor.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Stay active, stay happy and give someone a hug!
