The Farmer's Market, Delivered

I'm really excited about a new service we just signed up for from a local company called Fresh Picks. Each week we'll get a box of local, organic, in-season fruits and vegetables delivered right to our door! It's like the Farmer's Market is coming to us.  A couple of friends recently recommended it, so we signed up--and we're expecting our first box this Wednesday. We opted for the Veg/Fruit box for a little of each, but they have tons of options, even prepared foods!

I'm super excited because of all the fresh organic produce we'll be getting and also because we don't pick what we get--it's a big surprise. Well, it's not a total surprise becuase they post the list on their website, but it's sort of a surprise because each week it varies. This week we're expecting: Tangelos, Gala Apples, Grapefruit, Eggs, Spinach and Spring Mix Sprouts, plus Chard, Sweet Potatoes, Cilantro and Leeks.

I'm really looking forward to meal planning with our new Fruit/Veg box. I've never cooked or eaten chard before. And I imagine we'll be getting new (to us) stuff each week. I can't wait to try new foods and new recipes.

 Bon Appetit!
