So this year I signed up. I am only getting the produce bimonthly. There is no possible way my husband and I could eat all of the produce in time if we got the goods weekly! Here is what I got just this last week:
This is almost all of it. I also got radishes, oranges, organic coffee and a bag of spring mix for salads. I think my favorite part is that the produce I get is a surprise! I never know what I will be getting. That may be daunting for some but I am up to the cooking challenge to make something wonderful with what I have. I should be on Iron Chef: Lazy Video Gamer EditionI don't have to get my next batch of fresh goodness until next Monday, but I am finding that eating better means taking more time than I am used to devoting to daily cooking. I love to cook everyone knows this. But I generally cook a feast that takes 2 hours from start to finish maybe 2 or 3 times a week. That's finde and dandy when you don't have produce that is fresh and in fear of going bad. So what is it that keeps my time occupied? Video games! Yes, I said video games. I have a lovely co-worker with a son about my age that works as a game developer. So guess what I get quite often, go on, guess. I don't even have to tell you!
That's the most recent batch. I don't think I have purchased a game in at least a year. My addiction is being fed by my co-worker. There goes my time! But I was a smart cookie last night. Instead of jumping in head first into hours of game play, I made dinner. I knew if I didn't I would end up eating microwaved corn dogs at 11pm or having soup. I have fresh food in my fridge, I had to cook up something. Even if it was just something quick and simple. So I decided to make a chef salad (minus tomatoes, I ran out and none came in my organic bag) and french bread pizza!
My goal for this week is to make sure I use up all of the produce I got last Monday that is in the fridge. I think I might be able to use it all with a little planning and self control. The games.....they....they call to me!
Note to self: Remember to get tomatoes at the store. Salads and sandwiches have been lonely as of late!
