Mile High Goodness.

Did you guys know we have a milkman? Yeah... like the dudes who deliver milk right to your doorstep. That kind of milkman.

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. :)

Last but not least... for all of you romantics out there... the newest addition to our Christmas decorations.

Ok that's it for now! Happy day to all.
