The mister and I went big time grocery shopping last night, one of those trips where you buy everything you want. We go all out every couple of months. We got a ton of fruit...I've been so in the mood for mango this week, specifically with salt + lime (also delicious with lemon and chilies). I also got some root beer popcicles and pirate's booty. Terribly exciting, that pirate's booty.
Starting next week, we're going to get bi-monthly deliveries of produce from local organic farms. I think it's a good choice for us. Until spring, we'll pair that with our usual grocery routine, then try to navigate farmers markets and other local options to make our grocery trips smaller and smaller. It will be a challenge to see how much we can buy locally and be satisfied. It raises the larger issue of bad habits and how we cling to them. Foods that are easy to prepare, that are not the best in terms of packaging, nutrition, or any number of things. I will say, at the end of the day I'm happier for the mango I ate, not the popcicle. We'll see how this goes for us.
note to self: I should make mango popcicles.
