Another weekend away resulted in beginning another week with an overwhelming amount of vegetables filling both crisper drawers.
And since I had a ukelele lesson last night, and Mike walked in the door from work right before I got home, we threw together sandwiches at 8:30 p.m.
At least we used one tomato of the four in this week’s share, leaving:
- two heads of cabbage
- spicy greens mix
- sweet red and green peppers
- summer squash
- green beans
- small watermelon
- carrots (that I forgot to put in the photo)
I whipped up a beef, cabbage and carrot stir fry tonight, over Ramen noodles (again, no judging). I’m not sure why I’ve always bought shredded cabbage and carrots — the food processor got the job done in mere minutes.
When I was at the butcher buying tenderloin tips, I also picked some mild Italian sausage. Okra is next on the hit list. Anyone have a tried-and-true recipe for gumbo?
