A great basket this week filled with lots of fruit. This week we got carrots, strawberries, grapes, bananas, pears, plums, tomatoes, corn, lettuce, cantaloupe, and broccoli.
My family got a bit burnt out on broccoli because we had been getting it for about a month. We were glad to have a break and now I am so excited to see it in my basket this week. A few of our families favorite ways to cook it are Broccoli with Cashews, Chicken and Broccoli stir Fry with Peanut Sauce or Broccoli and Tortellini Salad.
The carrots are always great to throw into soups, stews, and stir fry’s. I also love them in Lettuce Wraps or just to make a simple Carrot and Raisin Salad with them. My kids love to just dip in Ranch and eat them as a snack.
Last week we just cut up the strawberries along with a lot of our other fruit and made a fruit salad for dinner and lunch. Strawberries are awesome in this Fruit Dip. Strawberry Popsicle are a cool summer time dessert. I also enjoy Strawberry Cake and Strawberry Lemonade. I also got a flat of raspberries and was thinking about making Raspberry lemonade the same way.
Let me know what you are planning on making and can’t wait to see everybody next Saturday!
