Well, finally decided on a co-op, White Oaks. Membership fee is low ($20), pick ups are every other week at $35 and there is a mix of veggies and fruits and everything is organic. This was the first pick up:
- two large portobello mushrooms
- rainbow chard – very pretty
- red leaf lettuce
- large bag of green beans
- 2 pounds of carrots
- 3 large onions
- 3 heads of garlic
- package of colored peppers – very sweet eaten raw or roasted
The first meal was a simple one. Portobellos with Grilled Peppers. I popped the portobellos in the toaster oven, while I grilled a couple of peppers in a spray of oil. Once the mushrooms were close to done, I threw some grated cheese on top (mozzarella and Parmesan), sprinkled with Italian seasoning and once the cheese was melted topped the mushrooms with the peppers.
Next posts, I will talk about some of the other delicious and challenging recipes I tackled. The fruit is always easy. They either get juiced or thrown into a smoothie.
