Looking outside, it doesn't seem like yesterday's blizzard delivered quite the amount of snowfall that was originally forecasted for us. It would have only taken a couple of inches for me to happily declare myself snowed in, though.
That makes this a great weekend to follow my first order from the Lehigh Valley Food Coop. This was from my Thursday order, which turned out to be more than I thought.
Potatoes, sweet potatoes, lemons, pears...
Spinach, carrots, apple butter...
Yes, that is a carrot next to the apple butter. Short, fat, funky looking carrots. Word is that they are super sweet. I can't wait to try them.
Brown eggs, which Ali can't wait to try simply because she's always wanted to try a brown egg. I hope she's not disappointed when she can't tell the difference.
There's raw cheddar cheese, and really nice looking broccoli.
Pasta sauce from Butter Valley Harvest, made in Bally, PA.
And some Sumatra coffee beans. Locally roasted and very fresh.
(These were delivered to us on December 17th.)
I am currently planning today's menu, which somehow needs to include most of the fresh things from Thursday's order. Maybe some eggs florentine with home fries for breakfast, broccoli cheddar soup for lunch, and sweet potato pancakes with roasted carrots for dinner.
Let it snow.
