Weekly Grocery Box

It’s July, and that means we’re starting to see all kinds of seasonal produce in our weekly grocery boxes from Real Food Connections. I’ve tried lots of new things already this year, and the season is just beginning.

Today is a fun grocery box, and I’m excited to show it to you.

Let’s not waste any time.

Here’s what we got in this week’s box:

Our usuals:

  • 2L chocolate milk
  • loaf of homemade bread – this week we chose brown bread with raisins
  • a dozen eggs
  • cheese of choice – we chose cheese curds – squeaky, squeaky cheese curds
Also in the box this week (from L-R, top to bottom):
  • a large bag of organic salad greens
  • a bag of sprouts
  • kale
  • chicory
  • fresh green peas
  • a giant zucchini
  • baby salad turnips
  • chunky peanut butter
A note about the baby turnips: they are fantastic! They’re super crunchy like a radish, but a bit sweet like turnip. They are lovely little dippers and I’ve been using them as a vehicle for all kinds of good stuff like tzatziki and hummus. They’re really strong enough to stand up to them.
Not pictured: 
  • 2 pork chops
  • 4 apple cranberry sausages
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 2 salmon filets

And now for something completely different, tea!

This is an iced tea blend called the Antarctica blend. Very cool. Ha! Get it? Cool.

Yeah, there was a joke in there.
