I decided to include a few extra items in this week’s delivery since we just came back from our Japan trip yesterday (by the way, I have SO much to share about our food adventures!), and our refrigerator was going to be empty. There’s something just great about cleaning out your refrigerator before a vacation and starting from scratch to stock it up with fresh ingredients.
The carrots and celery are an automatic addition each week now for juicing. We have arugula coming up in the garden now, so I think this will be the last time I include it this summer. The broccoli was just beautiful and the green peppers super crisp. I also love summer corn, and my CSA does not disappoint. For fruits this week, I decided to include raspberries, grapes and a cantaloupe – I didn’t put the cantaloupe away until I had cut it up and put it into a plastic container. I find that if I don’t do that right away, it usually ends up in the back of the refrigerator and forgotten about.
