As we only received 5 items in this week’s farm share, it was super easy to get it all eaten in time for tomorrow’s delivery.
When my husband cut into the watermelon, we discovered it was canary yellow inside! What a happy surprise! One of my friends kept suggesting that I make margaritas with it, but I am not one to succumb to peer pressure. My husband and I simply ate the whole thing, by the slice, with our bare hands. It was so incredibly juicy, the sweet liquid poured out with every bite, rolling down our hands and all the way down our arms. YUM!!! Here are some photos:
The tomatoes and green bell peppers were used to make chicken cacciatore which was a perfect Sunday family (my husband and I, with our cat looking on) meal. One of the carrots was thinly sliced with a mandoline and topped a salad of mixed baby greens with a ginger-soy vinaigrette. The rest of the carrots were cut into sticks and were happily packed in my lunch throughout the week.
That’s all folks. Not a lot of cooking, but that was fine by me. It’s nice to be able to enjoy vegetables (and fruits) in the raw. Now, let’s see what we receive tomorrow…
