Vegetable Box

Posted By Stephen

No picture for this post, just a quick note. A couple of years ago we subscribed to a vegetable box from Able & Cole, but stopped it when we moved and never got around to re-subscribing. It was interesting (and sometimes challenging!) to come up with tasty recipes each week to use our mostly seasonal fruit and vegetables from the box.

We have been sent another box this week to review, a “mixed organic” box which includes: onions, potatoes, parsnips, leeks, cabbage, apples, bananas and clementines. This worked out rather well, as we are having a pre-Christmas dinner this weekend and the potatoes, parsnips and cabbage were already on our menu for that, so the delivery will do perfectly. Onions are essential for many dishes, and we do love leeks so will no doubt find something good to do with them. And of course fruit is always good for a healthy and tasty snack and I do tend to take loads of it to work.

I commented that it just happened to match what we were planning quite well. Of course, when I thought about it, the box is mostly seasonal and Christmas cooking is mostly seasonal too, so it should match up to some degree because of that. Nice when that happens without planning it; it makes you think that you must be doing something right somehow.
