Guess what? That’s right, New Food Friday is back! Now that CSA deliveries are done for the season and we’re past the Thanksgiving holiday, I’m bringing back this series of new, unusual, different and weird foods. First up? Papaya! I know I’ve had papaya before in canned fruit mixes, but I never had it fresh until […]

Once again, I find myself with produce leftover at the end of the week. I’m actually ok with this; the deliveries are over after this week, so the longer I can stretch it, the better! The final delivery of the season is coming TODAY so there’s only one “What’s in the Box?” left for the […]
