What’s In My CSA Box Episode #4: How to use potatoes, jalapenos, spaghetti squash, onions, cantaloupe

Haaaaaaaapy Friday, friends.

I know I warned you last Friday about my imminent blog absence but I didn’t think I’d be that absent this week. Eek! Sorry for the crickets. The good news though is that I’ve been busy in the kitchen all week cooking up some SPECTACULAR holiday recipes that I cannot wait to share with you guys.

While the holidays seem lightyears away, I’ve got a video to share with you today that screams fall. In What’s In My CSA Box #4, we talk about winter squash!! It’s heeeeeeere! This box we’ve got spaghetti squash – one of my faves. Speaking of which, I’ve got a delish new spaghetti squash recipe to share with you next week! In the meantime, if you need some spaghetti squash inspiration stat, check out my eggplant parmesan spaghetti squash boats. What's In My CSA Box - 1Plus, I share in this video some new ways to use potatoes, onions, jalapeno peppers, and cantaloupe. Plus I talk about the health benefits of all these veggies. DYK that jalapenos may help you burn fat?! Watch the video below to learn more!

This weekend, Steve and I are having friends over for an I-cant-believe-its-not-summer joint birthday cookout! My birthday is a week from today and his was last Thursday. And then Sunday we’re going to take a drive and a little day trip to Portland, ME! Hope you have some fun weekend plans ahead. XOXO
