I felt like Charlie Bucket as I opened up our produce box this week. A head of cabbage. The last 2 weeks, the family that sends out the newsletter with the produce has been really great at giving recipes. They suggested cabbage salad since that's what her boys love (crunchy veggies). I'm not too sure about that, and I am not a huge fan of coleslaw. I have another friend offering up a recipe for some yummy treats she told me about that I'm anxious to try. I don't know if it'll use up all the cabbage though. So with that being said...anyone have some cool recipes they do using cabbage? Too bad I never got that engorgement issue- I'd know where to use those there! haha!

We also got beets - little guys- I was surprised! I was expecting onion sized beets...I need to find a recipe for that too, although roasting them was suggested. They also suggested sauteing the tops and folding them into omelets! We got potatoes, a sweet red onion, garlic tops (we were told to cook them like asparagus and then dip them in hummus), cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, cherries and raspberries.

Mommy washed my blankies and I had to have them RIGHT out of the dryer!

How funny you should ask about the cabbage. I just bought some at the store. I don't know if it would be as healthy as the other stuff you're eating, but we buy yakisoba noodles and fry up cabbage to go in it so that it's just like Panda Express chow mein.

I got Jared to eat cabbage by cooking it with corned beef, potatoes, and carrots.
