Since most meals I cook are for the 1.5 appetites that are V's and mine (mine being 1.2 of those), I was happy to split a share with someone else. This will also come in handy for weeks I will not be in town, several of which loom before me this July. But this week was our first delivery and my partner was the one out of town, so I brought the whole passel home myself.
And told Brian. And he objected on the grounds that it was very, very expensive food. This is not correct; it is not cheap food, but it is local and fresh and I don't think it deserves the "very, very". One share costs $615 for the season (roughly April to October) and Brian--with a straight face--argued that that amount would feed a family of four for a year. I gave him a chance to retract this ludicrous claim, but he insisted that he was serious. He also strongly suggested that I keep track of what I bring home each week, which seems like a pretty good idea to me. Here we go:
spinach, about 1.5 pounds
salad greens, about 2 pounds
asparagus, about 2.5 pounds
one dozen eggs
I went shopping before I knew about the delivery and I got a little chard crazy, so this has been a greens-heavy week. I thought it would be hard to mesh my new six-meals-a-day plan with Brian's return but so far everything has worked out fine. I think, however, I should plan my meal weeks Monday through Sunday rather than Saturday through Friday the way I had been. Ideally, I should have Mr. $12-per-week do the shopping.
