Spiced squash stew a la Boston Organics

| | Comments (19) | TrackBacks (0)
We received our first order from Boston Organics this week.  In the box: grapefruit, oranges, apples, pears, bananas, broccoli, spinach, sprouts, a butternut squash, a bell pepper, a tomato, and an avocado. Right now we're getting their smallest box, half fruit and half veg, every other week -- though we may change this to every week if we live up to our plans to cook more in the new year.

I'm excited by the prospect of not knowing exactly what's going to show up at the door with each delivery. It's almost like a little Iron Chef show right in my own kitchen: "Secret ingredient is... butternut squash!"  To make things easier, Boston Organics includes several recipes for the items in the box. On this week's menu? Spiced squash stew with couscous, spiced sweet potato fries (people ordering larger boxes received yams), and tangy broccoli.  We decided to take the stew for a test drive.

The raw materials from Boston Organics:

The low down on Boston Organic's goods: "We buy locally as much as possible. During the late spring, summer, and fall, alot of the produce comes from Vermont, Maryland, New Jersey, and Massachusetts. However, because of a limited growing season, difficult growing conditions, scarce labor pool, and suburban development, the organic wholesale market in New England is limited. As a result, a large portion comes from California. Tropical fruit, such as bananas and mangoes, comes from organic farms in Central and South America."

Its always a thrill to watch games between the Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers. During yesterday’s game between the Celtics and Cavs, LeBron James Shoes had 42 pts and 9 ast. MVP anyone? Well other that his scoring show, LeBron James drew much attention towards his feet. During the game yesterday, LeBron James was balling in the Nike Air Max LeBron VII Dunkman. The bright shade of green had to distract the opposing players for sure. The Cavaliers trailed by a large amount, but the King led his team to a comeback and ultimately take the lead late in the 4th quarter. But it wasn’t enough as the Celtics pulled away with the win. But even though the Cavs lost, LeBron had the most heat on his feet. Check out more pics after the jump.
