Order for Tuesday, December 4, 2012

Happy December!  Can't believe this year is already drawing to a close!  We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are looking forward to Christmas and New Year's. The holidays are falling on our delivery days, but since we cannot change the week cycle we're on with Global, we will either have to skip the first week of January altogether or else have delivery on Thursday, Jan 3.  Please give your host feedback about a Thursday delivery. 

 Rutabaga is a great root vegetable that can be eaten raw, grated on a salad, or cooked.  I love it in soup, but it can also be boiled and mashed up with potato to give your mashed potatoes more nutritional value. Boil it up on it's own and experiment, or go to this link and find something to make your mouth water:   Also, here is an absolutely yummy, yet easy salad recipe for using your watercress.  Just wait for an avocado to ripen up and you can dish up a gourmet salad for your family:  
Avocado and Watercress Salad
1/4 rice vinegar (I've used other vinegar in a pinch)
1 Tb grated sweet onion (or regular) using large holes of box grater
1/4 finely grated peeled Gala apple (small holes of grater)
1 tsp sugar
4 tsp soy sauce
3 Tb veg oil (I use olive oil)
6 c watercress, thin stems and leaves only
1 firm ripe avocado
Sitr together first 5 ingred. until sugar is dissolved then stir in oil.  Toss with watercress just before serving.  Quarter and peel avocado.  Cut crosswise into 1/4" thick slices and gently toss in.
