Every week we have produce delivered from a little store up the street. We shall call her Connies because that's the name of the little store.
Every Monday is like Christmas around here. Natalie and I anxiously await the arrival of the produce delivery truck. What will be in our little box this week? What glorious meals will we discover with our week's ingredients?
We could always go and sneak a peek at the website to find out what they will lovingly package up for us but, I mean really, that's no fun. We like the element of surprise. Yes, we lead pretty lame lives here in Missouri and there's often not much to look forward to. But, we will always have our Monday produce delivery.
Our ears perk up as we here him round the corner and truck up the hill towards our house. We rush to meet him at the door with big smiles and grab the box from his hands and rush to the kitchen. We pull out the scissors and tear in to the box to discover our glorious organic fruits and vegetables.
We are often met with broccoli, cauliflower, eggplant, oranges, apples, bananas, the list goes on and on. We giggle with excitement as we lovingly lay each item out on to the kitchen island. Ideas pop into our head and sometimes the ingredients are eaten at that very moment. Others are lovingly packaged away in to the fridge where they will soon be thrown in to a new recipe.
This evenings dish was chock full of fresh veges just the way I like it.
