Monday nights are like Christmas for me with the pickup of my CSA box every week. I could seriously live off produce (and dessert) alone! This week my box had the standard produce for the season.
1 seedless watermelon
6 ears of corn
8 red potatoes
1 carton yellow cherry tomatoes
2 large tomatoes
large bag of okra (eaten before picture was taken, I couldn’t help myself)
I usually use some of the produce right away monday night (which is why the okra was unpictured) and then come Tuesday it’s a free for all and I go nuts.
Breakfast: 7 greek yogurt pancakes. Eaten in the car without syrup on the way to Alyssa’s first ballet/tap class (SO cute!)
Lunch: leftover grilled chicken (1 drumstick, 1/2 a breast), 1 cup steamed okra, veggie chips, and a tomato mozzarella sandwich.
Snack: the entire watermelon (filled a 7 cup container) and a piece of toast with peanut butter.
Dinner: salmon, roasted potatoes, and corn on the cob
Dessert: Handful of chocolate covered pretzels and some chocolate pudding with whipped cream on top
So lets see out of my CSA box came the okra, watermelon, tomato, potatoes, and corn. Not too shabby. I actually had to refrain myself from making some hummus and using the peppers to scoop it up. I ran on the treadmill last night after I put the girls to bed and even though I had a large snack afterwards before bed, it always leaves me starving the next day.
And who wants to see my sweet ballerina (and her new dance bag I made her over the weekend)?
