CSA Saturday: Week 14

Last week was another uneventful week in the kitchen for me.  Not sure what’s going on there…  It might possibly have to do with my CrossFit schedule during the week.  By the time I get home and shower, it’s already after 7pm and I just want to throw something simple together.

As predicted, the peaches, tomatoes, peppers and apples were all gone fairly quickly.  B was not thrilled with my idea of stuffed cabbage from last week, so I put that on hold and will be making it with my Stepmom this weekend.  She appreciates a good stuffed cabbage.  Then whatever is left over will be going into a slaw for some BBQ ribs tonight.  Let’s take a look at this week…

Red & Yellow Tomatoes, Cucumber, Bibb Lettuce, Spanish Onion, German Potatoes, Cippolini Onions and Sweet Peppers

I think this is one of my favorite baskets I’ve received so far.  The potatoes and Cippolini’s, along with the remaining carrots from my garden, are going to be the bed for a roast chicken.  I LOVE a good roast chicken simply flavored with some lemon and oregano…you can’t get more simple and flavorful.  I’m then going to use the left over chicken for this no mayo chicken salad I found on Pinterest.  Creamy avocado takes the place of the mayo…YUM!  Paleo friendly and good for you :)  The bibb lettuce will be the perfect wrap for the chicken salad.

Speaking of lettuce wraps, I was thinking of chicken fajitas with those peppers and the spanish onion, then using the bibb lettuce as the tortilla.  I mean really, how good does that sound?!?  All of these meals are quick and easy, so I’m hoping they will fit in well with my time constraints during the week.

Do you make lettuce wraps?  What is your favorite kind?
