Fruit & Veg Friday

We had our fruit and veg delivery today (a ‘mystery box’). The driver kindly brought the box inside and put it on the table for me so I didn’t have to lift it off the doorstep.

Here’s what we got

10 August 100

Fruit: apples, bananas, oranges, lemons, pears, kiwifruit, mandarins, a grapefruit and a lime

Vegetables: potatoes, pumpkin, corn, sweet potato, carrots, parsnips, zucchini, cauliflower, red and green capsicum, silver beet, bok choy and a leek

Can you see the little guy that came along for a ride? Check out the cauliflower at the front of the picture

Here’s a close-up

I also ordered some extra bananas and kale (not pictured) to go in our smoothies with the frozen berries I get from the supermarket.

Anyway, I decided to wait and see what vegetables we got this week to help me make up my mind what to make for dinners for the next seven days. Here’s what I’ve come up with.

tomatoes leftover from last week –> South African bean curry

sweet potato, parsnips, cauliflower –> Roast chicken and veges

silverbeet –> Quinoa with feta, swiss chard and black olives

carrots, bok choy –> Kangaroo cashew stir-fry

pumpkin, green capsicum –> Chilli black beans

potatoes, pumpkin, corn –> Winter one pot (chicken)

red capsicum, zucchini –> Spicy lentil soup

 

I’ll pop back next week with recipes/photos if they turn out well.
