Boston Organics, Week 1

So, I signed up for Boston Organics, as I'm now in a place they will deliver to. I got the small box, 2/3 vegetable and 1/3 fruit, with the addition of a dozen eggs every other week. Here's what I got (from their list, with annotations; asterisks indicate locally grown food):
  • 1.5 lbs Bananas (4 small-to-medium green bananas. I'll likely let them ripen and then make banana bread with them.)
  • 1 Grapefruit
  • 1 lbs Paula Red Apples* (4 small apples. Not the prettiest.)
  • 1 lbs Pears (2 medium pears.)
  • 1 Acorn Squash*
  • 1 bunch Basil* (Nice-sized bunch! Can you say "pesto"?)
  • 1 bunch Broccoli
  • 1 4oz Broccoli Sprouts* (Never heard of these. They're basically like bean sprouts.)
  • 1 Red Bell Peppers*
  • 1 Romaine Lettuce*
  • 1 Salad Tomatoes* (Not sure what makes a tomato a "salad" tomato. Big tomato; weighs as much as the two pears, I think.)
  • 2 ears of Sweet Corn*
  • 1 dozen eggs
So, dinner tonight is likely to be salad, plus maybe some eggs, as I have some others that I bought last week. I think I may also try to roast the squash and the red pepper and make a pasta dish with those to have for lunch and dinner tomorrow. And I'll likely take an apple and a pear with me to snack on at work tomorrow.

Also included in the box were two pieces of paper. One is from the sprouts company, with recipes for "sprolls" (swiss cheese rolled around guacamole and sprouts), easy beansprout stirfry, and sango radish sandwich, as well as nutritional information about sprouts. The other is a weekly newsletter (Volume 7, Issue 36). It talks about what's in the boxes, where they're from (the non-local stuff this week is primarily from California and the Southwest), and some tips and recipes. This week's recipes are baked squash, stuffed peppers, and sesame noodle salad
