Organic LOCAL produce…

Wednesday, June 9th, 2010

I eat a lot of vegetables and fruits. I generally get organic and local but I go to the store to get them or the local farmer’s market. Well, last month I decided to try a local farm who delivers once a week. I signed up for the service, they have a variety of options from a small box of fruit for $25 a box to the whole shebang — vegetables and fruits for $37. I went with the big box…why not? It can’t hurt to have lots of extra vegetables and fruits, can it? They will definitely get eaten. The first couple of weeks had a lot of green leafy vegetables which wilted by the day after delivery at lunch. =( That sucks. So, maybe it is best to pick those on my own. I do know how to clean and store them, I eat them daily. But the fruit and other vegetables have been amazing.

It comes in a box with a plastic liner… and its left at my doorstep each week. This week’s box was particularly wonderful! Apples, nectarines, black plums, asparagus, cauliflower, mustard greens (we will see tomorrow how they work out!), raspberries, grapes, blueberries, carrots and organic potatoes…

 

Food is fun

Oh, yes. I do not much like to eat anymore so I have ample time to play with my food… and this is what I came up with today. (The angry sandwich is inspired by one I found on the internet…the rest are my own creations!)

I do so love to play with my food. It is fun. I’ll let you know what I come up with next…

(FYI…the sandwiches are made with peanut butter and jelly… the eyes with pieces of apples and green bell peppers)
