I think I did pretty good with my bounty of fruits and veggies. We ate or dehydrated pretty much all of it and I didn't let anything go bad! I still have an acorn squash and a grapefruit but those will more than likely be gone by tomorrow.
So what did I do with it all?
I bet you are wondering what on earth I planned to do with all those tomatoes I ordered. I dehydrated them and then put them through my food processor to make dried tomato base! Just mix with a little water and *poof* you have a tomato base for soups, chili stews or sauces. With a little oxygen absorber packet in the jars to keep them fresh this should last me a good long while.

|50 lbs of tomatoes turned to dust (or as close as my cheep little food processor could get them)|
The baby and I had the steamed broccoli and blueberries one day for breakfast, plus a couple eggs for me. Odd but delicious! I actually do steamed veggies and eggs for breakfast a lot.
I made baba ghanoush with the eggplant - yummy!
|It might not look so yummy, but it was I promise! :)|
And last but not least, what did I do with this thing?
I found a recipe from Martha Stewart for Celeriac and Apple Mash, it has a granny smith apple, the celeriac and yukon gold potatoes mashed with butter and blue cheese. Sounded like a wonderful side to pair with a steak.
Oh well you win some you loose some. But next time I see a celeriac at the grocery store I will at least know what it is and maybe I will be brave enough to try it again! :)
