Happy Wednesday, everyone! I am in a great mood today for many reasons. The top three are (1) the week is halfway over, (2) we get the day off on Monday! and (3) Rami’s and my first wedding anniversary is on Monday!!!!!! It seems like just a few months ago that we were planning our wedding in Iowa. I smile every single time I see a lemon because they remind me of our marriage, and I’m planning to make some lemon bars over the weekend so we can relive that part of our wedding day. 🙂
Rami and I were talking today about whether either of us was surprised that the first year is nearly over, and while neither one of us doubted that we’d still be married after one year (whew!) we both agree that the year has gone by really quickly. It’s also a little shocking to be married for a year because that’s something that grown-ups do. Even at 26 years old, I am surprised when I have moments that define me as a grown-up.
Still, grown-up I am, and that means making a menu plan. Even on wedding anniversary week! Here’s the produce I’m working with from the Local Box:
- Peaches – Lund Produce
Blackberries – Wheeler Farm
Fiesta Beets – Tecolote Farm
White Onion – Gundermann Acres
Mixed Carrots – Lund Produce
Flat Leaf Parsley – Tecolote Farm
Corn – Acadian Family Farm
Radish Bunch – My Father’s Farm
Red & Green Basil – My Father’s Farm
Romaine Lettuce – Bar W
