Every Tuesday a white van pulls up in front of my house. The door opens and a very nice young man pulls a box out of the back. That very same nice young man then places that box on my doorstep, careful not to ring the doorbell as our sign so nicely states not to. Babies sleeping! Is it the mailman? No. Is it Fed-Ex? No. It's our LPO delivery guy and he's delivering...groceries. Produce to be exact. In case you haven't heard me rave enough about our CSA (community supported agriculture) box from Los Poblanos Organics...here's some more propaganda for you. Eye-rollers need not read on.LPO delivery day is a rather exciting event around these parts. No, really, it is. You see, I have a problem. It's called grocery shopping. It never used to be a problem. In fact, it only started becoming a problem right around the time the doorbell sign appeared. Hmmmm. Anyway, LPO is a local organic grower. For a measly thirty bucks a week they DELIVER enough produce to suit a family of four. Did I mention they deliver? Most of each week's box consists of things that you would see in your common grocery trip (i.e. lettuce, apples, oranges, etc.). However, being the tricky little health conscious people that they are, LPO sticks some interesting items in along each week too. Let me just say it would not be unusal to open our fridge and see turnips, swiss chard, kale, beets, and leeks. NOR are we strangers to the Japanese sweet potato, Rainbow carrots, Bacon avocado and Cheddar cauliflour. It's a radical change from the same ol' hum-drum line-up of veggies that we once embraced, but a welcome one. Another, oh-so-nice, perk to our LPO box is that it forces me to think outside the "box" for meal ideas. It's always a fun adventure to find the tastiest Beet Risotto recipe and put it to practice. And yes, there is a Beet Risotto. Who doesn't love that? Diverse vegetables, diverse meals, delivery...can it get any better?In the event that you too are interested in supporting local growers, having organic produce delivered to your door for half the price of Whole Foods, or you just have a doorbell sign like me, check out Los Poblanos Organics. They even have a nifty way to earn your box for half price by working for two hours each week on the farm! Go ahead, try it. Do you think I would be blogging about it if it wasn't so good?
