June is fresh fruit and vegetable month. It is the best time to celebrate fruits and vegetables because grocery stores, farmer’s markets and road-side produce stands are filling up with an abundance of seasonal favorites like tomatoes, melons, strawberries, lettuce and squash.
Challenge you and your family to a mystery basket dinner. Bring out a basket of fresh vegetables and challenge everyone in your house to help think of ways to make them into dinner.
It might help to get a head start and get them thinking a few days in advance - why not assign one or two items per person?
