I've gotten produce boxes for the past 2 weeks, but not photographed them, having not been home for an absurd amount of time.
Anyway, my latest box, which I think was week 7, arrived Friday.
There was a great, random selection of veggies, and lots of fruit. Onions seem to be the one thing that always arrive. Since everyone uses plenty of them, no problem there, right? Also included: beets, broccoli, summer squash, English cucumbers, celery, garlic scapes, grape tomatoes, limes, yellow delicious apples, mangoes, white nectarines, and one mysterious but very pretty thing right there in the center: Romanesco Broccoli. It's formed into a head like cauliflower, but very pointy, almost space-age looking. I cut the florets off the stem, steamed it (they turned brighter green) and served with butter. The flavor is a little sharper than regular broccoli, but the design led to a discussion amongst the 10 of us here about fibonacci sequences and designs, and the fact that this is, indeed such a design. Hmmm. Conversations around my table can get to be rather wide ranging.
With all of these limes, I need to get looking for something exciting to cook with them. Maybe as a seasoning for my fish tonight?
Happy Monday, everyone!
