It was another full, heavy bag of produce. Some things were the same: zucchini, cucumbers, onion, corn, potatoes. And then there were some other things: green pepper, garlic, green beans.
Our challenge this time was just that…the time. We get our delivery on Wednesday. On Thursday evening we had piano lessons, hair appointments and a football informational meeting. Definitely no time to eat any of this. On Friday we left for a long weekend in HomeTown. We wouldn’t be eating at home again until Tuesday (yesterday). So what do we do?
I hate to see anything go to waste if it doesn’t have to. I knew I had a lot of paperwork to do on Wednesday so I didn’t have a lot of time. Dan agreed to go to the work to freeze the corn. I grated the zucchini quick, leaving out a few cups to bake into somethin’ yummy on Thursday, freezing the rest. And I added the tomatoes, green pepper and onion to some tomatoes from my garden and stewed them. They were tucked away in the freezer on Friday. I also made Pineapple Zucchini Bread & Chocolate Zucchini Cupcakes on Friday before we left for HomeTown. The cucumbers turned into refrigerator pickles that we took with for the family reunion dish-to-pass.
Green beans were divided up and given to the neighbors.
The potatoes? Well they are still in the cupboard with a few other weeks’ deliveries of potatoes. I really need to figure out what to do with the surplus.
And that took care of it. My crisper drawers were empty with the exception of a few apples.
In a few hours I will receive a text letting me know that the deliveries are here. Sweet corn anyone??
