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!
