Like I mentioned last week, I took part in my first Athens Produce Co-Op this weekend! Not only was I amazed by what we got for SO cheap, but since then, I’ve been prompted to get creative with my cooking instead of making the same ole’, same ole’. Chip is loving it.
Check out all that produce… for $16.50 per week! Unreal. And the fruit! Pears? Count ’em… 8. We’ve been enjoying our fair share of pears in the Carnes household.
Since then, we’ve made:
- Beef stew with the carrots, onions and potatoes
- Twice baked potatoes
- Some delicious apple, pumpkin seed and goat cheese salads
- Brown sugar glazed carrots
Now, I’m thinking of an apple crisp in the near future with the apples here and from our fall weekend. Top it with some vanilla ice cream and I’m sold. I might even get crazy and break out the ice cream maker. Mmm.
However, I’m not exactly sure what to do with all that celery, though. Regardless, I’ll absolutely be taking part in another weekend’s co-op here soon. It’s no doubt an amazing price for all of this goodness!
Anyone have any recipe suggestions to put this produce to use? I’m always open to giving a new recipe a try!
