This week's box is especially exciting, because we are getting Fennel and Yams. I will have to pick up another ham before they go off sale. We had a ham dinner for Easter at my sister's house, and I made a yam casserole with brown sugar, cinnamon, butter and orange slices. The orange sort of infused into the dish while it baked, resulting in a savory syrup and tender yams...yummo! I need to try that again when we get more than just one serving! Also want to try the suggested grilled Fennel Salad with Oranges. Spinach salad with Bacon dressing is one of my favorites, and I am sure a few strawberries tossed into the mix won't hurt a bit. Might try the Citrus muffins and substitute some almond flour for an experiment. Cauliflower Goat Cheese Gratin sounds intriguing, as well. Lots of possiblities this week!
