Here’s what in the Good Food Box for this fortnight:
|2 lbs||purple sweet potatoes|
|2.5 lbs||yukon gold potatoes|
|1 head||romaine lettuce|
Help! Must figure out how to cook beets, pears… Waaah!
I think I’m going to make pear pie.
I know, I know, I said I’d never buy a whole chicken again, but
Dominion had a two-for-one chicken sale! I froze one and stuffed the
other with apples and onions before roasting it. That’s why I had
plenty of cooked chicken on hand. I needed to find interesting ways to
use the fruits and vegetables from the
Good Food Box. In particular, I had a head of quickly-wilting romaine lettuce,
and I wanted to use the sweet potatoes (kamote! yay!).
I Googled up a recipe for chicken sweet potato salad and threw everything together quickly. It was a nice meal, and I liked the way the sweet potato contrasted with the balsamic vinegar. =)
Happy girl. Level up!
I’m now eligible for the Competent Toastmaster (CTM) award! Hooray,
hooray! My tenth speech was named “Cook or Die”, and I talked about
how cooking means happiness, comfort and love. =) It was good practice
for the upcoming club competition.
The club gave me a CTM pin and a very interesting book entitled “48
Laws of Power”. They also signed a card… Awww! =)
Happy, happy, joy, joy!
