And apparently Harper decided to get started on her husband search ASAP because look who we found snuggled up in the bed during our play date Monday afternoon?
Too adorable. Nothing makes me happier than seeing my little girl smile. Although I have to admit, fresh fruits and veggies are definitely a close second :) So let’s jump in to the party, shall we?
Last week we had 14 link ups. And thanks to My Yummy Local Life and Views From Here, I am inspired to add my CSA goodies to my breakfast. I mean, let’s be honest, who doesn’t want to enjoy a plate full of Carrot Cake Waffles and Egg White Puffs to start your day off on the right foot. Makes me want to hurry to bed so I can enjoy a breakfast of champions in the morning :) Thanks to everyone who linked up and shared their fruits and veggies with the rest of the group.
Now on to my fruits and veggies for the week…
Mustard greens…hmmm. I am sure I got these before, but I can’t for the life of me remember what I did with them. Knowing me, I am sure I sautéed them and will probably do the same this time around. Might even have to throw in some green onions and chives.
But I will have to make sure to save some green onions and chives for those potatoes. Because there is nothing more delicious than a loaded baked potato. I love to smother mine in butter, sour cream, cheese and bacon. Sinful, but good. And because a loaded baked potato doesn’t quite qualify for a meal on its own, I will add in a side salad topped with grapefruit and avocado, and maybe some shredded chicken for an extra dose of protein. Uh…I’m totally hungry right about now.
So while I type this I will curb my hunger with a few of those tangerines. Because they are oh so juicy and oh so sweet. And while I am at it, why not grab a few of those strawberries too. Heavenly.
And finally, the artichokes. Those adorable little artichokes. I remember making Lauren’s Grilled Artichokes last year and boy are they delicious! In fact, they are so good, I will probably eat these all myself. Because like I mentioned earlier, I am hungry and apparently stingy too (my husband can confirm that).
Your turn: What are some of your favorite ways to use the fruits and veggies shown? Any special recipe, tips or tricks you’d like to share? Looking forward to reading your responses :)
