In this week’s bag:
- frozen green beans
- frozen corn
- frozen blueberries
- oyster mushrooms
- shiitake mushrooms
Last night after showing the tiny apartment, I was star-ving and couldn’t wait for the beau to stop by with the veggies. I quickly spread the veggies out and dug in- I was CRAVING vegetables like you wouldn’t believe. I started a small pot of wild rice and the beau sauted up: all of the mushrooms, the onion, the corn, the green beans and some leftover broccoli from last week. All in coconut oil. It was just what my body wanted- along with a side of thinly sliced, roasted watermelon radishes. We had just about every color of the rainbow on our plates.
I’ve been on a big blueberry kick these days, eating them frozen by the mason-glass-full each morning for breakfast. That being said, the bag we got this week will most likely be gone by Saturday afternoon. No big deal.
With it being the middle of winter and the bags not bursting at the seams with fresh produce, I’ve contemplated upping our subscription to the largest size because we are breezing through the bags and are being forced to buy produce at the market. Not that buying a larger subscription would get us more variety, it would just give us more quantity wise so that we could have multiple meals throughout the week with similar ingredients. We could then drop back down to the smallest bag when our favorite local farm is up and running; with fresh, un-sprayed fruits and veggies just ten minutes away. We talked about it before and aren’t planning on dropping the delivery this summer because we want to see what they’ll have to offer since we joined so late in the summer last year.
With my dreams of it becoming warmer outside being crushed by freezing weather, I’ll suck it up and most likely make a big pot of soup this weekend. Maybe a kale, white bean and potato? We have both kale and potatoes left over from last week and I’m not only craving greens, but root veggies. It would be even better if it were spicy… I’ll have to share the recipe if it turns out as a one worth repeating.
Stay happy, healthy and positive my friends!
