O is for Organic Fruit and Vegetables

Today we picked up our first box of organic fruits and vegetables. Not that we haven't had organic before but this is a mystery box. A box that we have no control over what is in it - just the cost. A local company has started putting together boxes of seasonal organic fruit and vegetables that you order and pay for over the Internet and then pick up from a designated location.  

Apart from the health and environmental benefits of eating organic I am excited about having to use fruits and vegetables that we don't normally buy.  When we do the grocery shop we tend to stick to fruits and vegetables that we know we like such as carrots, potatoes, broccoli, apples, bananas and watermelon.

This box we got cauliflower, silver beet as new veggies to try.  I am thinking cauliflower macaroni cheese and spinach and feta pie.  We also got some lovely oranges which I plan to use in a fresh orange cake.  Keep an eye on our blog to see how these recipes go.

As an added bonus I can order freshly baked sourdough breads from a bakery a little further up the coast and that gets included with the box.

While we won't be getting a box every week (cost is a big factor in our limited weekly budget) I am planning on getting one every 3 or 4 weeks so make sure you check back regularly to see what new fruit and veggies and recipes we have added to our regular diet.
