One of my favorite discoveries this year is my weekly organic fruits and vegetable delivery service. The seed was planted when my good friend, Liz, told me about her weekly delivery and I was intrigued. I love to cook and I love good food and I am always striving to eat healthier. And then I found the Groupon. It was for $15.00 for the first delivery. It was a no-brainer. The first morning I woke up to my delivery outside my front door I was so excited. I opened the box and emptied it onto the counter. When the kids woke up and saw it, they were excited too. The box contained things they loved, things they didn’t love and things they didn’t even know the names of yet. When I told them that everything was fresh from the farm, they wanted to try it all…even the things they knew they did not like.
We’ve been receiving our delivery since August and every Tuesday morning there is still a race to the front door to get the box and empty it onto the counter. The kids are still willing to try anything…at least once. It has also broadened my menu planning. I will plan meals around what is in the box. With the exception of my monthly run to Costco for the basics, this leaves me with minimal grocery shopping for the week.
The service we use is Farmfreshtoyou.com. You can change your schedule or cancel at any time. The cost did double after the initial Groupon but I find that it is worth it for my family to eat healthy and we are supporting our local farmers.
Tonight I will be making butternut squash lasagna. Do you have any yummy vegetable or fruit recipes to share?
Do you receive organic produce delivery service in your area?

We receive a weekly delivery of organic produce at our house. Our delivery includes whatever fruits and vegetables are fresh from the farm that week. Our children look forward to seeing what is in the box and trying new things. This week we received A LOT of persimmons. I’ve heard of persimmons but being a girl from New England, I didn’t know how to eat them or what to do with them. Luckily, my California-raised husband shared that his mother made wonderful persimmon cookies when he was young. One email later and I had the recipe.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
My mother in law’s recipe suggests you may add raisins and/or nuts. I got creative here and made three different batches adding chocolate chips, butterscotch chips and macadamia nuts individually.
Drop by heaping teaspoon on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake for 15-18 minutes.
These cookies were beautiful and cake-like. My kids loved them. It was fun to sneak something healthy into such a yummy cookie.
Making these with one of my daughters, sharing some of my husband’s family history, created an even more memorable experience than simply baking together. Surprising her Dad with one of the treats from his childhood was an extra perk for Eva.
Thank you, Jane!
What recipes has your mother-in-law shared to meld your husband’s childhood memories with your own so they become important to the next generation?

From a new mom…..”So far he’s been a REALLY good baby. He basically just cries when he’s hungry. He was a tank at 9lbs 4 oz and looks exactly like his older brother. I LOVE my Joovy bottles!! I was using Born Free but they leak and have so many parts. My hubby really likes the Joovy bottles too, easy to put together for a man in a frenzy over a crying, hungry baby.” from a “VERY satisfied mom”
