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… (more)

Even though the title says Fennel! this post will be a hodgepodge of what I did all weekend. Some baking, some cooking, some experimenting, and lots of dishes. Let’s start with the fennel, though, because it’s my new found friend. Last post I mentioned I still didn’t know what to do with my fennel. The last fennel I had went into a soup and was entirely unnoticed. I finally decided to roast it and see… (more)
