Fruit and veggie pickup

Every Thursday, I receive a share of organic fruits and vegetables from Wesleyan's student-run co-op. Not only does everything have more flavor, but I'm also inspired to cook more often (so that nothing goes bad before I use it) and to cook more exciting things (since I'm sometimes unfamiliar with an ingredient I receive). It's a pretty sweet deal all around.

When conceiving of this blog, I envisioned that I would use my weekly co-op haul as inspiration, posting, every week, what I received and then documenting how I used each ingredient in my cooking. I later decided to be slightly more ambitious, instead trying to post every single time I cook. But I am still going to post my weekly pickup and how I use it. Here's this week's:

Asparagus, pineapple, strawberries, broccoli, and avocado (not pictured: the honey tangerine I consumed immediately upon receipt). Stay tuned for all the exciting ways in which they get used...
