Another produce box!


Lookey here - what's in the produce box this week? We received mushrooms, pumpkin, kale, broccoli, radishes (again!), carrots, pak choy, sugar snap peas, zucchini, tomatoes, lettuce, potatoes, onions, bananas, apricots, nectarines and peaches.

Our breakfasts and lunches will remain the same as last week, and for dinner it looks like we'll be having the following:

Wednesday - Vegetable black bean stir fry
Thursday - Kale and mushroom pie
Friday - Sweet pumpkin and lentil salad with banana lassi
Saturday - Rack of lamb with honey mashed pumpkin and carrots
Sunday - Mascarpone and lemon pasta with broccoli and green salad
Monday - Ratatouille pies with salad
Tuesday - Spicy carrot fritters with potato salad and roasted tomatoes

Grumbles and I also made a batch of mixed berry yoghurt muffins, loosely based on the recipe from Mark Bittman's How To Cook Everything Vegetarian. Man, they were goooood!

And for the person last week who requested the recipe for the poached apricots, then here's the secret: Make a light sugar syrup of 1 cup brown sugar to 3 cups of water. Bring to the boil with a vanilla bean, then add as many halved apricots as you like. Poach gently for 5ish minutes, then take off the heat to cool. Voila - with yoghurt it's a perfect breakfast!

What's on the menu at your place this week?


  1. Those muffins look super delish.

  2. your whole menu sounds divine, and that photo is making me positively swoony for muffins. i have got to figure out if we have a similar produce co-op around here.

  3. Aw man, I'm super inspired! My mother-in-law went blueberry picking this week, guess who'll be making muffins!

  4. do you have any recipes for apples? My tree is overladen with fruit this year. We share the fruit with a family of lorikeets they eat the top ones we cant reach and we get the lower branches. So far we have made cider and some salads but Im trying to find recipes other than apple pie. By the way youre muffins look delish!

  5. Thanks for sharing your poached apricots recipe!

    I just discovered your fun blog. Those muffins look to die for! Yours don't look like any other yogurt/berry muffins I've ever seen. What did you do to get them like that? Please, I'm begging for the recipe!
