Odd products.

 

Because sometimes you have to look twice.

 

 

To me, this looks like strips of wet, tie dyed paper and as such… not the least bit appetizing.

 

 

Oh, it’s a healthy vegetable?

Well that explains it.

I’ll try it as soon as I finish my pile of kale.

 

 

Hundreds of customers are rarely wrong, but while I like a good massage as much as the next girl?

I’m not using something that looks like my great grandfather’s ballsack.

Just…. no.

This last product isn’t necessarily odd, but it did make me wonder.

A bright berry mixed green salad was dinner the next night.

Week 4 saw the family we split with out of town, so we received the entire share.

And that’s a big bag of veg.

Zucchini, turnip, cucumber, mustard greens, parsley, carrots, mesclun mix, parsnip, spinach, lemon basil, butterhead lettuce and cilantro.

Not being fennel fans, we passed that and the dreaded cilantro off to a friend.

But ooh la la!

Fresh aromatic lemon basil meant from scratch marinade…
