I need to get in gear though as I still have a few items left from the last box: Jerusalem artichokes, 1 zucchini, 1 kohlrabi.
Any ideas on how to use these items?
The organic farmer I’m working through also has an online shop where one can add items to the weekly delivery.
This week, I may have gone a little overboard. Regardless, I am again so pleased with the quality of the items provided.
So without further ado, here’s what I received this week.
First up, the extra items:
Wild garlic tofu steaks. It is grilling season after all!
Onto the veggies!
Can you believe that I get all these fresh, organic, regional veggies delivered to my door for less than 13 Euros!?!
This week, a free bottle of 100% apple juice was also included.
I predict that it could be one of many reasons:
a) welcome gift
b) thank-you-for-buying-so-much-extra-stuff gift
c) everyone-gets-a-free-bottle-this-week gift
d) someone-signed-up-because-you-can’t-stop-talking-about-us gift
e) let’s-get-her-hooked-on-something-new gift
f) just-being-nice gift
Whatever the reason may be, I say thank you!
I’m trying to organize a dinner party for Tuesday night. I promised everyone I’d have them over after my cooking class in Italy last October, but I’ve not gotten around to just doing it. My vegetable box this week has sparked some ideas and been the inspiration for finally making the plans.
Right now, I’m thinking of doing eggplant bruschetta, a lettuce salad, fennel risotto and tiramisu. Any other ideas?
