Produce box

This week's produce box was quite the disappointment.  I am treating this weekly shipment from W Dairy as a sort of "Chopped" experiment.  It has been fantastic, with some great guacomole and mangos the first week.  But, alas, this week we found to our dismay 5 (count them 5) Jumbo Green Bell Peppers.  EWW The only thing I don't eat.

So we are looking into Green Pepper Jelly Recipes and will make them tomorrow.

But tonight, from the basket, I'm making what I shall always refer to as the 54 special.

Roasted Garlic Lemon Chicken legs
Roasted Red Potatoes with parsley, carrots, and onions
Spicy Spinach saute with red pepper flakes and grape tomatoes.
