Just in Case You Want to Stare at My Groceries With MeBy
Just a little reminder (and warning) for you about what a nerd I am: I really like looking at my groceries after I bring them home and before I put them away.
I also like looking at pictures of other people’s groceries. What is it with me and food?
It’s been a while since I took a picture of my Azure Standard food co-op order and shared it with you. Some of you have even written me and asked why I don’t do that anymore.
I don’t know. Sometimes I guess I just get busy putting away my frozen peas and forget to get out the camera. But far be it from me to forget my weird bloggy-ness by NOT taking a picture of all of my daily activities. (Check out this post for a reminder of what bizarre kinds of pictures are in my picture file.)
And now what you’ve all been waiting to hear. All SIXTY pounds of the apples I ordered from Azure Standard arrived on the delivery truck today. Check out these beauties:
I got twenty pounds each of organic golden delicious, gala and spartan apples. The total cost for these apples? $47!!! For sixty pounds of organic apples!!!! I love Azure Standard!
Here’s the rest of my order:
Fifty pounds of hard white wheat, three pounds of yams, two cans of black olives, six pounds of fresh pears, five pounds of cocoa powder, five pounds of white cheddar cheese, ten pounds of carrots, two avocados, one big cabbage, a huge head of cauliflower, five pounds of frozen peas and one tub of whole milk maple yogurt (special treat!).
The wheat will last us about two months and the cocoa will last longer than that. Everything else will be gone within the month (or by tomorrow).
Total cost with the apples and everything else (including delivery charges): $188.54
Ooh, and guess what else? Our friends shared a deer with us this week. Matt even got to go help process it! They were so generous to share it with us! Cost? A few freezer bags. Wow.
Not pictured: Red, raw deer meat.
