Veg Box

Veg Box

It was the moment Jorth had been waiting for. She had politely shown the organic fruit'n'veg delivery guy into the house, smiled with patience as he made small talk about the mandarins, and had given him a cheery wave as he got into his van.

But no sooner had his van begun to putter on down the street than Jorth slammed her front door shut and raced back into the house to rejoice over her bounty. She practically had to stifle a moan as she gazed in delight at the autumnal haul. After lovingly inspecting all the fruit (although she was a wee bit disappointed to find an eggplant in there - she and eggplant just couldn't be friends) she took out a fresh piece of paper, found herself a nicely dulled grey lead, and began to compose her weekly menu plan.

Friday: Cauliflower, brussel sprouts and bacon mac'n'cheese with salad
Saturday: Silverbeet and potato pie with rocket and tomato salad
Sunday: Spinach and lentil soup with garlic bread
Monday: Broccoli, ricotta and roasted tomato spaghetti
Tuesday: Sweet potato and pea samosas with roasted carrots and raita
Wednesday: Ratatouille with poached egg on top
Thursday: Beef stew on creamy garlic mash

Hope you all have a lovely weekend, filled with delicious things to eat!

  5. Hi Anne,

    My local organic fruit n veg shop delivers, so I use them, although I have used the CERES Fair Food service in the past before, and they were good.

    Lesley, I have an awfully big cookbook/magazine collection!
