I’m not sure how we lived with any amount of excitement in our lives before we were regular consumers of the Real Food Connections weekly food box.
This appeals to all of my senses and personality quirks.
I LOVE the excitement of getting food surprises every single week. I can’t tell you how much I love it.
I love that we are supporting local farmers, something that is very near and dear to my heart. My husband and I share a dream of becoming farmers someday. In the meantime, I’ll continue to slave away in front of the keyboard in my office, I guess.
I also really love coming home and dreaming up delicious things to cook with each week’s treasures. It’s like I’m on an episode of Chopped. The best part, I’m always the Chopped champion in my house.
I love that we’re getting so much value out of these boxes. I usually feel guilty walking out of RFC with all the food we get. It’s a weekly ‘Start the car!’ moment.
Here’s what we got in this week’s box:
- 1 lb of soldier beans (with a great recipe)
- chili gouda
- a dozen eggs
- loaf of multigrain bread
- a large bag of baby spinach
- swiss chard
- 1 lb cubed stew venison (red tailed deer)
- 2 lean burger patties
- 2 smokies (part ground pork, part bacon, all perfect-breakfast-meat)
- 4 cheddar bacon sausages
- 2 pork chops
- 2L chocolate milk
- broccoli sprouts
- an Early Girl tomato plant (!!!)
- 4 honey crisp apples
If you aren’t already a regular customer at Real Food Connections Fredericton, you need to be. Trust me.
PS – There is so much more than just food there. Check them out!
