Over the last year, we have been privy to a local bi-monthly vegetable and fruit basket subscription that allows us to pick up a basket of fresh goodies on the regular. It has been a great addition to our normal grocery run, and keeps us on task in our healthy pursuit of consuming 3-5 servings of vegetables and fruits daily. We don't know until we pick up our basket what is in store, and it has provided us opportunities to partake in dishes we don't normally purchase. This week's basket is full of corn, red apples, baby mushrooms, and red potatoes, amongst half a dozen other veggie and fruit delights for $20. Our creativity in the kitchen is in overload with such a variety of goods. In previous baskets we've had asparagus, red peppers, and squash, Every other week is a treat, and we encourage you to either look into a similar subscription in your area or frequent a local farmer's market for in season veggies and fruits. We also seek out similar markets when we travel, especially in European countries where it is known to go from the garden to the table top in the same day. Local fresh markets are all over European cities and towns, both major and small. We plan to peruse some of these markets during our travel at the end of the month, and will take pics of our best finds.
