The first delivery I received was fun and exciting. We had lots of new vegetables and fruits that we have never tried before. It was an adventure and we were excited.
We love the Organic Milk and will continue to purchase Organic Milk from our delivery service or the store, either will work for me. The reason I am going to Organic Milk is because I read this article here and decided that is the way I want to go. That article is the reason I started getting deliveries from The Boise Milk Delivery Service. I haven't made up my mind about quitting the milk delivery yet.
But I sure had a reality check with the fruits and vegetables delivered. The fruits and vegetables were not the same quality I pick out when I shop for myself.
I excitedly cooked the Artichoke after researching it and talking to a few friends about it. I dove in and cooked them. Dinner time - everything set up with melted butter, mayonnaise and cooked Artichoke. First leaf - no meat to drag off the leaf with my teeth ..... and then the next one...... and next one and next one, still no meat on the leaf. The Artichoke was not mature enough to have any good stuff. I'd eat a little at the very tip of the leaf - but not much. The center (after getting the fuzzy stuff off) was yummy. I could have really enjoyed the Artichoke if it had been a better picked vegetable that was ready to be harvested. I felt it was a total waste of money.
I didn't like the Brussels Sprouts again this time... another waste of money.
By the time I got around to steaming the fresh beans - they had tons of brown spots on them and ended up in the garbage. Another waste of money.
I struggle getting out of my comfort zone. But, it was an exciting week to try new things. Although, Brady didn't like it very much.
The fruit -- bananas were bruised and small. They weren't green (as I normally purchase them) and didn't last the week before they needed to be made into banana bread. The oranges weren't as sweet either which could have been weather related, but I've never had this problem purchasing them from the store. sigh!
Milk Delivery two:
I scheduled another delivery this past week. I figured out you could see what fruits and vegetables were going to be delivered and I thought it looked great -- so I scheduled it.
THEN after the schedule was complete and couldn't be canceled, they changed the selection. WHAT??? I wasn't too happy about the new selection. Pineapple will be fine... 2nd in line -- do you know what that is?
3rd is a grapefruit, and 4th a blood orange - hmmmmmmm
