What's in the box? May 19, 2015

That is a lot of produce! And with just one day left before I leave on vacation, I will have my work cut out for me if I hope to use it all up before tomorrow morning—especially since (as usual) I also have a flurry of packing, appointments, and last-minute chores.  However, I do have a family of five, and at least two of us really, really love carrots.

Here's what was in our box this week:

Lettuce, two heads
Carrots, two bunches
Strawberries
Heirloom Kale
Bok Choy
Beets (some members received Swiss Chard)
Basil

And here's how I plan to use it all in less than 24 hours. Think I can do it? I'll post an update to let you know if everything went as planned.
