I enjoy finding new ways to use up leftovers. I had some chicken leftover from dinner the other night and about a tablespoon of salsa. Cooked up some bacon, tossed it with the chicken and then added lettuce, baby spinach, red onion and some red bell pepper (all from my first farm box) plus the salsa and folded it into a tortilla from the local Mexican grocer. Oh, it was wonderful! You can see the pineapple from the box, too.
Farm box update
The strawberries..eh. They didn’t have much flavor at all. The pineapple was delicious! The onions and garlic were good (I still have one of each) but they weren’t the best bang for my buck, so I doubt I will order them again. Green beans had good flavor. I’m not a big fan but I’m trying. I’ll make them again this week and freeze any I have left. Sweet potatoes will appear on my menu this week. The red leaf lettuce & spinach were both really good, too. The whole wheat pizza dough had good enough flavor and was quite soft for a whole wheat dough. I’d like to try their white dough next.
