Reasons why I love my veg box

I'm clearly in a blogging mood today, but it's a year this week since I started getting a weekly vegetable box from Abel and Cole (other veg boxes are available... ) and really I just wanted to have a short moment of indulgence to praise the goodness that is the veg box:

  1. I hate supermarkets, with a passion. So a weekly veg box means I only go once a month to stock up on storecupboard ingredients and my sanity remains intact. My veggies arrive on a Friday and are left for me to pick up when I get home, packed naked in their box which is reused/ recycled every week.
  2. You are forced to cook with new ingredients, even sometimes things I've never seen or heard of before. Here I should also praise the ladies at the food and drink forums. What would I do without them? New veggies cooked this year include, jerusalem artichokes, fennel, and kohlrabi - and they're just the ones I can think of.
  3. The variety of vegetables that turn up... this year I've had so far, 3 varieties of beetroot, regular deep red, pink stripy and yesterday yellow! I confess, I didn't even know that you could get beetroot in that many colours... it's like Joseph and his technicolour dreamcoat in my kitchen at the moment...

I've noticed one of my neighbors has a Abel & Cole veg box, I'm tempted to start getting a veg box again.

I have to agree about F&D at Handbag. It has inspired me to cook so many things I usually wouldn't have tried.

I love that you love your veg box but I want to hear about what you ate in New York!
