Veggies!

by Mollie

Mondays are my new favorite day!   I get one of these delivered to my doorstep:

We signed up for a service called Farmer Fresh To You, which delivers a box of locally grown, organic produce to us each week.  It tastes amazing!  Hannah was asking to see how much comes in a box, so here it is all spread out .  This is the 2nd smallest size: 7 kinds of veggies, 3 kinds of fruits, plus a clove of garlic, a lemon, and an herb.  We don’t order specific things, but they do e-mail us ahead of time telling us what we are getting so that we can substitute if there’s one we don’t like.  This amount is almost enough to get us through a week– I did use a bunch of bananas and some bell peppers in addition to all this.  But it will be perfect when our garden is producing again.

Yes, we are so lucky to live in a place where delicious strawberries are growing in February!  They were big juicy ones too.

It’s fun to try new things.  Turns out the whole family loves baby bok choy! Who would have guessed?  Check out this funky Romanesco cauliflower we got this week.  I made a yummy casserole with it.

    WOW! I would LOVE to have someone deliver fresh, organic produce to our doorstep! It all looks so bright and delicious! I would love to know some of your favorite recipes (like that casserole as Eva LOVES cauliflower and I am not too creative with it). :)

    Wow, that is a lot! So you feel like that’s a good size? I think we might try it sometime, it looks like it really helps you branch out and try a variety. We get stuck in a rut :) How did it change your food budget for the week?

    That’s some crazy lookin’ cauliflower! What a treat to have them delivered. I should see if there is anything like that around here. Not likely since we have to drive to Alvin for a good farmer’s market, but the valley does produce good produce. Wish I could grow a garden. Even if I had a green thumb I think Kaycee would help too much with the ‘weeding’ :)
