I’m backk! With a FreshBox!

30 06 2013

To say that I’ve fallen off the food blogging train is an understatement.  Whoops! But I’m back, and hoping to be posting more frequently.

Thanks to the urging of one of my co-workers, I recently signed up for the FreshBox program through Alan’s Orchard in Westfield.  Each week I pick up a box full of fresh fruits and veggies from local farms.  I get a box this size each week (placed next to my ottoman for size comparison):


Here’s a photo of all the stuff I got one of the first weeks. There’s so much stuff that I was bringing some of the extras to some co-workers at school.


The thing I like most about the program is that each week I also get a packet that teaches me how to clean and store all of the fruits and vegetables, as well as 15-20 recipes that involve the ingredients.  We’ve gotten strawberries, blueberries, asparagus, spinach, lettuce, rhubarb, bok choy, kale .. the list goes on and on! I get 9-10 different ingredients each week and it forces me to meal plan a certain way.

I haven’t done a great job documenting what I’ve made so far (I’ve made much more) .. but here are a few pictures!


Italian sausage with asparagus, tomatoes, spinach + cannelini beans in pasta


Steak with a butternut squash, spinach, and onion hash


Tilapia packets with fresh tomatoes and asparagus

I hope to keep blogging about all the different things I make with all the great ingredients I get. Happy eating!
