    So, I signed up for this recurring delivery service.
    They scour the local farms for produce and assemble a box for delivery to subscribers...

    My second delivery arrived:
    Mint, Swiss Chard, Broccoli, Collards, Gai Choy Cabbage <?>, Turnips w/ greens, Tangerines, Meyers Lemons , and a little Cilantro plant in a pot...

    I thought I was, too... but where I won't BUY something strange looking in the store; when it shows up, I will invent something to do with it. If in doubt and it is a leafy green thing, cook it like collards! That always works!

    Well, sadly I haven't ever cooked collards so I am intimidated by most veggies. Lol I suck.

    Oh.... my... gawsh... You MUST come over for dinner one night and try them! They are so wonderfully good... and cheap... and good for you.

    They were one of the easy-to-grow items that poor folks could enjoy in a family garden patch, even with poor soil. Very popular in rural VA when I was a kid.

    My sister found a great way to cook them while she lived in Brasil - and I think I've posted it up on here. If NOT, then I will remedy that immediately...

    I had them once, my aunt made them and they were awesome! But I now nothing if them so I never have attempted making them. Heck I am afraid of spinach. As! I liked it as a kid but have never tried cooking it myself.

    We may live without poetry, music and art; We may live without conscience, and live without heart; We may live without friends; we may live without books, But civilized man cannot live without cooks.

    We have similar cooperative programs available here, but it is so expensive. Being a New Yorker, we are always afraid we are being ripped off. They don't get real specific about what you will be receiving.

    LOL! ... beware the green stuff!

    I once dated a guy who claimed to "be allergic to green." Yes, green - as in the color.

    I think the $35/box is a rather pricey. I know I could go to the store and come home with much less of a bill. But what I am signing up for is more along the lines of MAKING ME broaden my repetoire of veggies... They send me stuff I would NEVER pick up by myself. LOL! But being a frugal kinda chick, I cannot WASTE the produce... so I research the item, and invent something to do with it.

    So far, I have been tickled with the produce and have discovered that I really like several new things. Which was my New Year's resolution this year - to widen my veggie consumption by trying one new thing each month. This just force-feeds it to my fridge!

    So, this week's delivery: Avocados, Mustard Greens (mmmm), Broccoli, "Lettuce Mix", Tatsoi (looks spinach-y), Brussels Sprouts, Green Cabbage, Beets *YUK*, Grapefruit, and more Meyers Lemons!
    That lettuce "mix" looks like someone took the weedeater down my the river bank...
    Oh, and that is Charli -- she likes GreenStuff and is waiting patiently for her portion! LOL!
