I cheated in order to accomplish my food challenge...I gave a lot of food away. That's the benefit of having a three-year-old nephew who can't get enough fruits and vegetables and a Thanksgiving with parents who agree that apples make great dessert. The results:
Earlier this week I used up some lettuce, apples and a couple of the oranges in a fancy salad (fancy for someone who normallly thinks tearing a leaf of lettuce requires too much time spent in the kitchen):
Still to go in the challenge: two pears, celery, lettuce, potatoes and a few apples. I foresee another gourmet salad in my post-Thanksgiving future.
