Next Week’s Organic Delivery List (for 3/3/09)

Here's what we'll be getting in next week's delivery of organic produce from Absolute Organics:

  • Green Peppers – local
  • Green Leaf Lettuce – local
  • Cremini Mushrooms – local – recipe emailed
  • Collard Greens – recipes emailed
  • Carrots with Tops – recipe emailed
  • Avocados – recipe emailed
  • Fuji Apples
  • Bartlett Pears
  • Valencia Oranges
  • Kiwi
  • Bananas

The cremini mushrooms scare me a bit because I don't really like mushrooms at all, but I also didn't check them off on my sign-up indicating that I didn't want any, so I knew I'd get some eventually.  Looks like next week is the week!  I'd like to learn to like mushrooms.  As with most foods I don't care for, I keep trying mushrooms every so often, hoping that I'll finally decide I like them.  So far, no luck.  I'll still put them in recipes that call for them, but I usually mince it up so tiny that I can't tell I'm eating mushroom, but I still get that great mushroom flavor.

I'm especially excited about the kiwis.  I don't think I've ever actually purchased kiwis just to eat, but I remember my mom eating them all the time.  I gave them a quick check in my The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth book.  Unfortunately, I read it over really early this morning before I had coffee, so I can't remember exactly, but I think the book said that kiwis have twice as much vitamin C than oranges!  Here's a good article with some nutritional info on kiwis (click).

I'm looking forward to another fresh & amazing delivery!

PS If you sign up with AO, tell them I sent you! 🙂
