I made soup for the first time to welcome the cooler temperatures this weekend. During our ritulistic evening walk, I mentioned to my husband “Its not cold but…” “But it feels like it will be,” he finished. He nailed it. Of course he did.

As it turns out… I’ve been missing out on perfectly fine pieces of peach! Apparently it’s just “callus… Read More White Spots in a Peach – Mold, Fungus or Fine?
I’m already feeling a tinge of regret that I went small this week, after our journey into the world of the large basket last week, this one is feeling particularly small. Two peaches? Sigh. That will not last us a week. We moved through the large box with ease this past week – although, I… Read More What We’re Eating | Is It Enough?
So … I’m trying something new this week. I ordered the large basket of veggies – which is supposed to be for a family of four.
