yummy fruits and veggies

We received another delivery today! I mentioned last night that we would be receiving another delivery and big E perked up and said "man, I hope there's mangoes again". I told him that we'd always get fruits, but it depended on the local farms that the company pulls from and/or what was in season.
Last night we cooked up the last of our previous delivery, all that was left was onions and potatoes, and we had some seriously yummy potato soup.

Today our delivery included:
1 bag of romaine lettuce - local
3 very large squash - local
1 jumbo yellow onion - local
2 large roma tomatoes - local
10 braeburn apples
8 red bartlett pears
6 oranges - FL
1 pack of 6 bananas

Along with each delivery comes 2 recipes that go with the veggies/fruits delivered. I love this company we joined with! Here's a yummy sounding recipe for squash:

Garlic-Cilantro Squash:

1 tbsp of minced fresh cilantro

1/2 tsp lemon juice and olive oil

1 clove garlic, crushed

1-1/2 tsp of water

1/8 tsp of salt

4 small yellow squash cut in half

Combine cilantro, lemon juice, oil, water, salt & garlic in a bowl. Brush cut surfaces of squash with 1/2 of cilantro mixture. Place on grille over med-hot coals. Place squash halves, cut side down, on rack and cook 3 minutes. Turn squash, brush with remaining mixture, cook until tender. Serves 4.
