My first glimpse inside the Misfits Market package for this week.
So what is all this stuff?
First up in my box is a butternut squash. I will either roast this or make it into a nice soup -after all it’s soup season!
Next up are these two delicata squash. These will be nice roasted for dinner. Not sure if these two will be enough for the whole family but we’ll figure it out.
There were three yellow onions in my box as well. I’ll be using these in cooking as I prefer red onions for sandwiches and places where onions are served raw.
There are six apples in my box as well. We let the kids eat fruit whenever they want in our house – needless to say that these are gone already!
There were also six Bosc pears included in my box. I wasn’t able to customize my box this week but I always choose pears when I can. Both the kids and my husband love these!
There were also five red potatoes included in my package. These were a little bit small but we will definitely be able to use these up!
There were also two large golden beets included in my box. If you’ve been reading my blog for any length of time you know that I love beets and preferably Harvard style. I’ll be using these in my lunches!
This is a huge bunch of celery. I am not a huge fan of celery but since it’s the Holiday season we’ll be using this in stocks and things of that nature.
Another item in my box were six lemons. I used two for my lunch this afternoon – I marinated some cod fillets in lemon pepper and butter and it was divine, I always love fresh citrus for both dressings and marinades.
Terrible picture but what you are supposed to see are four little bunches of baby bok choy. This is nice sauteed with some garlic, ginger and soy sauce! Very simple to make!
Then there is this large eggplant. There’s only one way to eat an eggplant in my option and that is in eggplant parmesan!
Okay.. so this questionable item is a jicama? It wasn’t listed on the website for this week and the only item that I could find that resembled it was a celery root and i scraped it and it doesn’t smell even remotely like celery. So I’m guessing this is jicama… one of the only root veggies I kind of don’t know what to do with – drop your recipes in the comments please!
Then there were two heads of frisee – this isn’t a good stand alone for salads but it’s nice with a bit of romaine or iceberg. There certainly is a lot of it though!
Another wonderful picture. There were two turnips included in my box. I love turnips just sliced up raw to snack on… so delicious.
So in summary
Presentation: Everything was packaged well and arrived to me well in my box from Misfits Market
Quality: I love that all the items are organic as well as non gmo!
Curation: I didn’t get to select my assortment this week but it still was a nice box!
