July 4th Menu and Milk and Honey Organics

Last time I mentioned having a reason for only having 5 days on my menu plan and having an exciting surprise for my next menu plan. It’s something I’ve been wanting to try out for a long time and finally did this week. I ordered my first Sweetness Basket from Milk and Honey Organics! My Sweetness Basket this week was filled with the following organic produce:

via The Beehive Buzz
  • 4 Apples, Granny Smith, Extra Fancy
  • 1 bag Carrots, Baby Peeled, Bunny Luv
  • 3 lbs Potatoes, Yukon Gold
  • 1 pt Berries, Blueberries, North Carolina
  • 1 pt Berries, Raspberries
  • 4 ears Ambrosia Sweet Corn, Bi-Color, Pinebreeze Farms in Pelzer, SC
  • 2 lbs Tomatoes, Roma (Plum)
  • 1 head Cabbage, Green, Local
  • 1 each Melons, Cantaloupe
  • 1 Onion

If you’d like to get some ideas for using up your fresh produce from Milk and Honey Organics, you can check out their new blog, The Beehive Buzz. Melissa from My Journey to Lean posts recipe ideas as well as a full menu plan every Friday. I’ve used it as a resource for my menu below and, as always, I use the Publix weekly ad to help save money as well. (I’ve asterisked the recipes that incorporate the items I received from Milk and Honey.)
