Harvest Box for February 12, 2010

You may notice a four-legged creature peeking inside my Harvest Box for this week. He loves to get a look at what's in there, almost as much as we do.

I'm looking forward to cooking up those delicious mushrooms this week. A great recipe to try in which you can really enjoy the simple flavour of mushrooms is Best Button Mushrooms - easy and a great side dish for most main meals. For something lighter, try combining this week's spinach and mushrooms in the same bowl with a Spinach Salad with Warm Bacon Dressing. And this Pasta with Savoury Walnut and Mushroom Sauce promises a rich and tasty weeknight meal.

Since I'm still looking for new and exciting ways to use avocado, I'm going to make these Quick Chicken Tostadas for my family this week. It looks simple and yet tasty, so I'm hoping it's something everyone will like. Another great choice is this California Cobb Club Sandwich - doesn't that look absolutely amazing? We are huge fans of avocado in a sandwich and this one is pretty spectacular.

I found a great vegetarian meal in these Spinach and Mushroom Quesadillas - pretty easy to make, too, and packed with nutrients and good stuff. For some warmth on a cold February night, put your spinach in this White Bean Soup and enjoy a bowlful of something tasty.

I've mentioned before that I often serve broccoli with shrimp because my kids love it and all three of them eat it. Well I stumbled upon this recipe for Roasted Broccoli with Shrimp which is a bit different than mine, and I am definitely trying it out this week. It looks fabulous. I also came across this Chicken Broccoli Parmesan which is touted as a "quick and easy recipe for busy families". So, if you've got one (a busy family, that is!) be sure to give this one a try.

Enjoy your week!
