One issue that arises each week is: how do you eat all this produce? Most recipes stretch out the veggies - what we need to do
is consolidate! With that in mind (& a need to bring a lunch to work every day), I have devised a "quick 'n' easy" solution. All
you need is: Here's what you do:
  1. clean & cut up the veggies, about 2 cups
  2. put in microwave safe container with some water in the bottom
  3. microwave 1 minute (for zukes) to 3 minutes (for green beans)
  4. while microwaving, put a dash of olive oil/salt/garlic powder/(vinegar too if cooking green beans)/other herbs as desired in the boston chicken container
  5. when veggies are cooked, throw them in the container too. Put a lid on it, shake it around a bit, & voila! Marinated veggies for lunch.
I do this recipe every morning & it means I eat better (my 5 plus servings of veggies), save money, & I clean out my fridge at
the same time! Now, that's what I call multi-tasking!
Let me know if you have any other quick recipe suggestions!

Helpful hints:

November 7, 1998
This was our twenty-second, and final week of vegetables. Unfortunately, I didn't keep a record of what we got! Alas, all I know is that we got (among other things) many pounds of carrots. About 20 of them. I've been eating carrots ever since. The funny thing is: the day before I got my share, I made some recipe that needed carrots, so I bought some (not expecting the deluge). And you know what? My suspicions were confirmed: the store bought carrots, although very much uniform in size & shape, and very pretty looking, were no match for the dirty, funky, small organic carrots. The store-bought carrots were not as crisp or tasty. And I have not bought any carrots since that day, two months ago as I write this!
