This week’s box includes:

FRUIT:  bananas, apples, kiwifruit.

VEGGIES: english spinach, mushrooms, corn, tomatoes, butternut pumpkin, potatoes, cauliflower, and white cabbage.

We had a weekend away in the Blue Mountains, where we had a fantastic (if pricey) meal at Vulcan’s restaurant. I had a ‘3 tofu salad’, followed by a pumpkin, goat cheese & lentil rotolo. We shared an amazing chocolate/orange slice for dessert. It was my birthday treat, and I really enjoyed it – the flavours were great,  & the servings were not too big, but not too small. The side of veggies included incredible green beans… so we’ve grabbed some for this week.

On the way home we stopped at some roadside stands in Bilpin (apple-farming country) and picked up a kilo of green beans, some avocados, a small capsicum and some lovely new season pears. I also bought a huge jug of local apple cider vinegar, and some local honey (for Mr B’s weekend breakfast)

I’m going to hit the cookbooks tonight & do some menu planning.
