Roasted Veggies always taste so good. This recipe is another easy one and so basic…preheat the oven, clean the veggies, mix in a tiny bit of oil and spice, pop it in the oven, and by the time the table is set they are ready to go.
1 head of cauliflower
Simply Organic garlic salt
Preheat the oven to 425°
Cut the broccoli and cauliflower into florets (save the stems for juice).
Wash the florets in a colander.
Spin the florets in a salad spinner to get rid of any excess water.
Place the florets in roasting pan and coat LIGHTLY with olive oil. Season the florets with garlic salt.
Put the roasting pan in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes until tender and golden brown.

About a month and a half ago I bought a Groupon for an organic produce delivery service called Farm Fresh To You. Groupon was offering a deal that I couldn’t resist, $15 for a mixed organic produce box that usually costs $31. I am such a fan of the service that I signed on as a regular customer.
I love getting the deliveries….I feel like I have a present waiting for me in my courtyard! I chose to receive deliveries every two weeks, because I really like going to the Farmer Market too. The service allows you to customize how often you receive deliveries and it is very easy to log in and cancel a delivery if need be (i.e. if you will be out of town). I have also found their customer service to be phenomenal (they call every so often to check in and ask if you have any questions).
The oranges from our delivery yesterday were honestly the best oranges I have ever had. The flesh was the color of grapefruit, but they were so sweet! My kids each ate one and they both asked for more.
Part of the fun for me is figuring out what I am going to make with the fruits and veggies they deliver. I have a feeling the kale is going to become kale chips!
Here is a description of their services in their own words:
|We Harvest a variety of seasonal fruits and vegetables from our farm and create several home delivery and office delivery service options for you to choose from. Our Regular Service is our most popular home delivery for those who have some time to cook and Mostly Fruit Service is great for those of you who are always on the run. The produce in each service changes weekly and varies seasonally, but we work with neighboring organic farms to ensure a good variety of produce year round.|
|You Choose the service you would like to receive and the frequency you would like to receive your service. The day that you receive delivery depends on your zip code, and the frequency of your delivery can be weekly, every other week, every third week or every 4th week delivery.|
|Customize your service after you sign up for your delivery by logging onto your account or contacting the office via phone or email. You let us know the item(s) you would not like to receive and we automatically change the item(s) if they come up in your standard seasonal selection. Feel free to add extra items for an event or dinner and we will deliver them with your next delivery.|
It really feels good to sink your fingers into dirt and get messy. Sometimes life gets busy and we can only do it one step at a time, but slowly and surely it gets done…
Last week before the rains came I spent some time taking all of the compost out of my composter and spread it on my bare garden. A few days later I went to Home Depot and brought home a truckload of nice organically fertilized dirt to spread over my compost and with my husband’s help I was able to spread out all ten bags before another wave of rain came (we literally finished minutes before the onslaught).
Today after Yoga I went to one of my favorite nurseries, Plant Depot, and stocked-up on winter greens for the garden. I came home with two packets of seeds (kale and cucumber), sugar snap peas, bok choy, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, and Brussels sprouts. It only took me about 30 minutes to plan the layout and plant.
I put some finished compost into my composter as a starter and threw in the pulp from my green drink this morning. I am all ready to watch the plants grow and keep feeding my composter with scraps which will be ready to prime my planters when the time comes to plant my Spring garden.
