The Honesty Box Menu 3

The Honesty Box this week was a great assortment of warmer climate vegetables. I guess winter is well and truly over.

This menu reflects a warmer season, though I’m not quite ready to give up on soup yet! For those of you in the northern hemisphere, I hope you are starting to incorporate soups into your weekly meals, they’re a cheap and filling way to eat lots of vegetables and you’ll have a lunch or two of leftovers to deal with too.

We have almost finished our 20kg of Eketahuna Meats beef and with the last package of sausages, I’ve taken to removing the casing and breaking up the sausage meat to make quick meatballs. Great for soup and pizza.
