Veggie post on the door!

Boxes waiting outside the door on a Monday morning is the best.
- Especially when they are boxes from Abel & Cole

A few weeks ago we joined their box-scheme to get organic seasonal vegetables delivered on the door,
and it has worked so well and been such a great treat to get to see what is in it when it arrives.

Ours come every 3rd week, and this Monday was only the second time, but I must frankly say I have
completely fallen head over heels in love with these folks!
Everything is so well presented and they really care about the details, as having a minimum of packaging,
sharing recipes and tips for how to use some of the weirder greens (like the celeriac!),
collecting the used boxes for recycling, and adding lovely little notes.

Ah, and look, my freebie this time was a carton of delicious soya milk, plus 
a surprising festive mini mince pie too even!


Loaded with red cabbage, fresh mushrooms, limes, carrots, parsley, chard and
lots of apples and quinces from fabulous farms around the country there is no better way to start the week.

I had also added on this delivery with some gorgeous looking squashes and pumpkins of all sorts,
which will star as ingredients and decorations at our Thanksgiving gathering here tomorrow eve.
- I'll make a raw pumpkin pie for the first time, so cross your fingers for me that it will work out!
