Kirk should be here any minute to pick me up. I haven't looked outside yet, but apparently Mother Nature is already pouring her frozen wrath upon us.

Thank you, Andrea dearest, for showing me the way!

Yay, my first shipment of organic food arrived!

Included in the box:

- 2 GIANT leeks
- 2 apples (fugi)
- 2 apples (granny)
- 2 pears
- 2 tangerines
- broccoli
- 4 fingerling potatoes
- 1 onion
- 2 turnips
- Italian kale
- collard greens
- garlic
- radishes
- fresh parsley

I also added on:

- rice milk
- tofu

Certainly not a bad batch for the $27 I paid (and for mostly locally grown and all organic produce? Rawk. Not to mention the convenience of having it brought to me and not having to shop - HAAATE shopping!! I haaaates it!!!) The tofu and rice milk were additional, but not more than I would have spent at a store for them.

So now I have some stuff that I know what to do with (like fruits and potatoes) but I have never prepared turnips in my life (possibly never eaten one). I also never would have known the kale if they weren't labled, and have never held a raw collard green in my life. (I may have tried a bit of them once.) I'm quite excited about the possibilities and knowing that I'll at least get SOME fruits and veggies into me, vs the almost none I have been getting (I have been doing my grocery shopping at Target since the grocery store by my work moved away, which was in April) and... well.... I need some suggestions.

I hate cooking, for the most part, and like things that are super easy, preferably take only one pan/dish to make.

I also had to do some swift looking up as to how to even STORE the things. Now it's past my bedtime and I have to baggy stuff up and stuff.

Not overly familiar with rice milk, either. I use soy the majority of the time (I can actually get a chilled carton at Target, in two flavors!) but haven't felt like the "soy" taste. Regular milk disgusts the hell out of me, and I won't drink it solo - sure, I'll have it in a latte or somesuch, and other dairy products like cheese (which is gross, but I can get past it for some reason and rarely eat that as it is) and ice cream.

Wow, I'm loving the parentheses today.

It's so bedtime.

I hate to admit that I'm PMSy and moody, but after watching this:

and actually CRYING like an idiot, and after almost crying three times in the first five minutes of The Biggest Loser finale last night, I shall tip my hat. You got me, silly hormones! You caused me to turn into a GIRL!!!

So, yup. Lower back pain coupled with this leads me to believe that I shall be bleeding soon. That, and the fact that it feels like I've been punched in the boobs.

Thanks for making a girl cry, eatsoylentgreen!! ;)

P.S. - I'm covered in hives.
