Pretty cool, huh? Well, it gets cooler. Not only does our milkman deliver us our milk, he delivers our cheese, vegetables, fruit, and even meat!
Mile High Organics, a company based out of Denver, has a delivery service where you order whatever groceries you need and they come to YOU with the goods.
It's the best thing since sliced bread. :)
I place my order the Wednesday before our delivery date on Saturday. I can select all sorts of seasonal fruits/veggies/fresh herbs, as well as any dairy products and quite a few pantry staples like rice, flour, and spices.
What's even cooler... we get our milk delivered in glass jars. Love it. I feel like we are straight out of the Cleaver Family.
In our weekly basket, we get a variety of fruits and veggies. This week, we received two items I've never cooked - carnival squash and gold chard.
My plan is to roast the squash in quarters with a lil bacon and garlic on top. As for the chard, I'm going to saute it with some bacon and raisins (recipe from Rachael Ray). The way I see it, bacon always makes things better so I figure it'll be a good way to incorporate two new veggies into our repertoire. Haha!
I'm excited about it. I'll post a pic or two of my attempts... well unless it's a bust. ;)
In other news... looks like this chica might have a baby by the weekend!!! I'm so ready to see the lil dumpling. Andrew calls Lima Bean his little wonton... only fitting that her cousin be our little dumpling!
|Sorry it's blurry... I stole it from Kate's Shutterfly acct :)|
Also, I finally finished my latest project - our Christmas wreath. My last project, LB's stocking, wasn't too hard to complete because Rachel was here and she could take care of the baby.
This time around I had to take care of LB (heaven forbid) so my wreath took the back burner. Besides the fact that the "J" is slightly crooked, I think it turned out "front door" worthy.
Disregard the heinous cords! I'm still working on that one.
Oh and here's a pic of LB's homemade ornament. :)
Ok that's it for now! Happy day to all.
