Huh, this doesn't look like pizza.

This week we're trying out a new service we heard about on the local news. Food comes to our door! Um, more specifically, organic produce delivery. Greenling is a local company that offers home delivery of locally grown organic produce. And for items that aren't in season locally, they obtain them from other organic growers. You can set up weekly or bi-weekly delivery, and you can choose the package size that best suits your needs.

For our first delivery, we ordered 3 grapefruit, 5 bananas, 2 apples, 2 pears, one bell pepper, one onion, celery, 5 tomatoes, 1 lb of new potatoes, mixed greens, a bag of baby carrots, basil and 1 lb of broccoli. This is enough for one big batch of chicken soup, a basil pasta entree, as well as several side dishes for meals and snacks. We set up bi-weekly service for around $30 per delivery. So far everything has been pretty yummy and I'm mainly just worried that we won't be able to eat all of the vegetables before they go bad. (It's a little bit possible that we eat out too much.) Next time we might order more fruit than veggies. At least if bananas go bad you can freeze them and make muffins later.
