The * indicate items that you have to buy on your own — they don’t come in the AFM packages.   I will post recipes of the entries in Red after I have prepared them.   Also, as you might notice, there are a few items that we don’t seem to use at all — worry not, they aren’t going to waste :).   We will be making all sorts of yummies with the key limes.   I’ve found a bunch of recipes and will go through the pile until I run out of limes!   I will also be making DH a lot of homemade Guac and Salsa and I’ll share the recipes for those, too.  YUM!

So stay tuned for recipes and more fun stuff using the goodies from the AFM May 2009 shipment.
