good grief! another enormous 2nd harvest offering. I skipped all the bread, cookies, crackers, pies (seriously...HUGE frozen cream pies and some costco-size fruit pies). Also skipped the "dairy box"...or rather gave it to someone else, because I'm dairy free. I came back with a 3 or 4 lb bag of organic rainbow mini carrots, another 1lb bag of "normal" carrots but odd sizes. 10lbs of russet potatoes, 6 or 7lbs of apples (fuji and pink lady! sweet like candy), 2 oranges (they were more yellow than orange but delicious) and a 3lb or so bag of yellow onions. The onions are on the small size but that works for a single lady. Not such a committment when I cut one open. Lunch was a couple of apples, 2 potatoes and a buffalo burger from a past harvest. Really good free lunch!
I might see if I can get a bit of ginger to ferment some of the carrots. I can't eat them before they go off. then again, they said there was an extra distribution next week. Jeez! I guess just eat what I can. No canned goods this time, fortunately. Oh yeah, 1 more box of maypo quick oats...no sweetener. I guess it's lots of fruit and veg for me this week.
