***Revision below*** (but it's not a court date)
I have recently joined a co-op. Every other Monday I get a large bin of organic, locally grown fruits and vegi's. It is so wonderful and they really are so delicious- the picture above is of my glorious bounty that I got today. (haha, I am pretty sure that's the first time I have used the words "glorious bounty"...it was fun) This (seen in the picture above) is a full share- for $50.00. I know for us, we eat a ton of fruit and vegi's and spend at least that much every 2 weeks on produce, so we were really excited to be able to get GREAT quality organic locally grown produce that is so much better for our bodies- for the same price. In addition, it makes my grocery shopping so much easier, all I need to get is chicken, rice, pasta and such and I'm good to go! If this is too much for your family you can also do a half share which is obviously half of what you see above and that's only $25.00. It is quite inspiring to have such good healthy food in the house, it makes me want to find new recipes to use all this yummy stuff! It is actually a nation wide company called Your Health Source, and cities all over can or may already have a local co-op started.
Here is everything I received today...2 large bunches of Romain lettuce, 1 head of cabbage, one bunch of carrots, 2 avocados, 1 bunch of celery, 6 zucchini's, 1 bunch of broccoli, 12 Fuji apples, 6 tangelos, 1 bunch of banana's, 8 sweet pepper's, 6 Roma tomato's, 2 red onions, 10 oranges, 10 pears and 2 bunches of spinach. Phew. That's alot of food!
Is anyone else annoyed that we don't have court date yet?? Geez louise...6 weeks is ridiculous. I haven't blogged about the wait much, mostly because I feel like maybe if I don't talk about it, maybe I will forget that my son is getting older and bigger and sweeter without me. He is officially 5 months old now and we have come to the realization that he is going to be about 7 months by the time we actually meet him...that makes me want to cry. He was just a teeny weeny little 3 month old when we saw him for the first time and now...he is probably starting to fill out college application forms. Practically.
***Last night for dinner we made an amazing vegi pizzaout of our new loot...whole wheat crust with olive oil and garlic, fresh spinach, tomatos, onions, olives, pineapple, red peppers....devine. It was devine.
