New look & Green Earth Organics

I just vamped up my blog a bit with a background from The Cutest Blog on the Block! I wanted something that was more "me" while still being kind of cute in the "I'm gonna be a mommy to a baby boy" way. I also changed the name of this blog, as we fully intend on using this blog to update friends and family on our daily lives. It is hard living far away from the people we love, but the internet comes in handy! Between e-mail, facebook and skype, it is easy to stay in touch! This blog is just another tool to keep people involved in our day-to-day lives!

Doug and I decided that we wanted to start eating more vegetables, and in a wider variety than we usually eat. We fall into a "produce rut" too frequently, by eating the same veggies and fruits over and over. We decided to find a local CSA (community supported agriculture) group, but had a hard time finding one that was either close enough for us to get to, or that would deliver to us. We ended up finding a few produce delivery organizations which deliver in our area, and went with Greed Earth Organics for various reasons. We were pretty excited to get our first produce box yesterday afternoon! They dropped it off right at our front door! We decided to get the small box, as it best fits our budget, and still gives a good variety and amount of fruits and veggies. Yesterday's box had apples, peaches, bananas, red leaf lettuce, squash, red potatoes, onions, grapes, corn and savory.

We used half of one of the onions on our homemade pizza last night (whole wheat crust with tomatoes, green peppers and onions) and it was delicious! I'm looking forward to roasting the red potatoes with onions and savory with a nice roast chicken next week! We're hoping this helps us branch out in our vegetable consumption, as well as actually EAT more veggies! We pay for the veggies to arrive at our front door, so now we have no excuse not to eat our veggies. :)


  1. That's cool that you joined a CSA that delivers. (Hopefully deliveries aren't so late all the time!) It's been on my list for a while, but being a broke college student put a damper on things for a bit. I want to join the CSA that's 20 min away, but I'd have to pickup since they deliver everywhere except my direction, even though I'm so close. grr..

    It's nice you're able to stay in touch with people, even living so far away. Have you returned to the US much? I enjoy your posts and continuous optimism. Stay well!

  2. They assure me the late delivery wasn't something that happens regularly. :)

    We haven't been able to get back to the states many times. I've only been back twice in the past four years, but we are planning a visit for the spring (so everyone can meet the baby).

    Thanks for the comment!
