Money CAN buy you happiness!

Fair Shares for this week:
1 dozen free range eggs
1 head of broccoli
1 bunch of fresh tarragon
2 eggplants
1lb green beans
5 large red potatoes
1 bunch yellow beets
1 English cucumber
2 regular cucumbers
2 zucchini
2 yellow squash
1 large package of tortillas
6 bagels
1 package fresh chevre
1 bag of tortilla chips
a little over a pound of ground lamb
All of this is either locally grown or produced. Now, could you have bought all this from your big box grocery store for $50?
What do I plan to do with all this local loveliness?
The zucchini, squash and eggplants will be used in a vegetable lasagna.
The eggs will be used to make freezer quiche.
The lamb will be curried in a hurry.
The tortillas will be slapped in a crock pot for a Mexican lasagna.
The green beans and red potatoes will made into my Sausage Bean Pot, scroll through previous posts for recipe.
The chevre and tarragon will be added to a grilled chicken pizza.
The chips and bagels will be devoured all on their own.
Oh and the beets will be added to last weeks purple beets and fried up into chips.
How's that for a menu for a week?!
I will post recipes as I make them so check back.
