  1. I was able to blog about the carrots, potatoes and green beans.
    The creamy pesto didn't work out because I didn't have any pesto in the freezer. I had thought I had one more packet, but also, no.
    The toor dal was a bust. We just didn't like it. I thought about blogging about it, but it didn't seem worth it. I did use one of my onions from my second 40 pound vegetable box.
