I set my alarm early this morning to make sure that I was up and dressed in good time for my fruit and vegetable delivery. Despite managing to nod off again for an hour longer than planned, I was still ready when I got the call: “I’m outside your building!”. (Note to self: fix doorbell.)
The box was promisingly large, and I was excited about looking inside. As soon as I got upstairs I opened it and goodness me it was full of delicious things!
I have to admit, I was a little alarmed when the first things I saw were alfalfa sprouts and bok choi. Or at least I think it’s bok choi. But the whole point is to force myself to try new things, so I suppose it’s a positive that I haven’t the first clue how to use either of those items…
Item by item, I unpacked the box to reveal far more than I had expected to get inside one cardboard box. It certainly is good value for money! It’s about fifty fifty fruit and veg, although by weight it’s significantly more veg, and I was delighted to spot a few of my favourite things nestled in there: broccoli, avocado, potatoes. I’m glad I held off from buying an onion despite needing one for almost everything I wanted to cook this week because the box contained four!
Now I’m off to put it all away and figure out what I’m going to make with it next week. If anyone has any ideas, particularly if they involve the bok choi, the alfalfa or the celery, I’d love to hear them. Recipes will go up as and when I make new things 🙂
