Box from April 24

1 head of lettuce

1 bulb fennel

1 bunch carrots

3 shallots

1 avocado

3 valencia oranges

1 box strawberries

I really truly have very few photos of this box. It just wasn’t that interesting. I ate the carrots, strawberries, and oranges raw. The avocado I put on some tacos I believe, but I didn’t take any photos of our taco night this time around. The lettuce went into our regular salads. The only things I actually cooked with were the fennel and shallots.

This is a pile of mush made mostly of cauliflower. I made a cauliflower and fennel gratin using the fennel bulbs from both this box and the previous one. Cooked it in a dish with a mornay sauce of gruyere cheese. Also some shallots and garlic were cooked into the sauce, too.  It was actually pretty good. Lasted 5 total meals, 2 for Eric and 3 for me!

One night Eric worked late so I made this me-friendly dish of quinoa, black beans, and corn. It was somewhat reminiscent of the dish I ate for my Thanksgiving meal stuffed inside a squash, but not exactly. I threw in some leftover salsa we had from taco night and that eliminated the need for pretty much any other spices, flavorings, or tomatoes. It was quite good.

And finally, here is a pinata cookie filled with mini m&ms. He’s chillin’ in a tiny sombrero.
