I’m being completely candid, here. I have no idea what half this stuff is that comes in my veg box. For all I know, it’s an elaborate hoax played on unsuspecting Americans. Do weeds grown by the side of the road count as fresh, local produce? Probably.
I love — love — having vegetable mysteries custom-delivered to my door every week. It’s making me a better cook, and maybe — maybe — making me a better person. No pressure, veg box.
(Wonder if I’ll get any Brussels sprouts before December 24th? I’m game to try this: http://www.williams-sonoma.com/recipe/roasted-brussels-sprouts-with-bacon-and-chestnuts.html Or any other veg recipe that includes bacon, for that matter.)
