Series 2 of Jamie and Jimmy’s Friday Night Food Feast kicked off on the 2nd of January just in time to influence my foodie resolutions. It’s a fairly fun magazine type of cooking program that the kids watch with us as well. One of the articles was about the amount of veg that gets thrown away because it’s ugly. Essentially supermarket chains pre selecting and specifying only the finest shaped food for consumption. When in real life carrots grow in all shapes and sizes. It prompted us to look at our veggies and we decided to take up a weekly veggie box from east coast Organics. We tried them about 10 years ago, and I don’t think I was up to the culinary skills that I thought I needed, then we had kitchen issues, eg none for a good 8 weeks, so we dropped the box and just got out of the habit.
However now we have the impetuous and two growing boys to feed….who are starting to hoover most things up and the great thing is that a bag full of potatoes is a blessing rather than a curse……so we’ve gone for it.
Potatoes, carrots, onions, mushrooms, lettuce, tomatoes (or sweet potato), kale, butternut squash, leeks, parsnips, red pepper.
I’ve been trying all week to post some of the recipes we used to get through this small mountain……they will come honest!
