Shortly after the horse meat scandal broke, AP requested that we eat more vegetarian meals. And after reading about the Monsanto Corporation hijacking our food supply and contaminating it with genetically modified seeds, AP requested that we eat only organic vegetables and fruits.
Ho-Kay. So AP ordered an organic vegetable box and it arrived on our doorstop last week full of fruits and vegetables that, frankly, we never eat. But it just kills me to throw away food and when I couldn’t off load it on our neighbors or my hair stylist, I had to actually start planning meals and looking up recipes for all the root and leafy vegetables that we got in our box. And also, too, grapefruit.
Friends and readers, I have made some crackin’ good meals lately: A vegetable tart; a vegetable stew; and grapefruit & honey glazed chicken (that was tonight’s dish). And it’s a good thing that I like braised red cabbage, that’s all I can say.
P.S. – Monsanto is a big satan. Do everything you can not to support it.
