  1. Wild rice lettuce wraps and the stir fry steal the show!!! But all that lovely produce. Sure beats the stuff I just bought, mine looks good, yours is off the hook looking!

    I left you a comment re applesauce in the vitamix. Maybe you deleted it LOL but basically I mentioned that although the slow cooker stovetop method is awesome, if you’re ever pressed for time, 2 apples, dash of agave, dash of cinnamon, 1 min in Vita = applesauce. Just thought I’d let you know I’m a cheater over here and that’s how i do it.

    • Averie – I didn’t delete it… you commented about the applesauce in the taco salad post. ๐Ÿ˜‰ But thanks for the idea. Do you like ginger? Because if you do, it’ll add a bit of zing to your apple sauce so would some citrus… if you want my opinion. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thanks for the produce kudos… it’s a local delivery service… I chose the small organic box… they do their best to buy locally… some of the stuff I get, like purple peppers, I haven’t seen at whole foods, plus it’s nice to know what’s in season… I didn’t eat seasonally until I started this delivery service back in June… it’s been fun to see what’s in season and it’s been very tasty having produce at it’s peek for a change. ๐Ÿ˜‰ My friend found some purple peppers at the farmer’s market this summer and gave me some and I think they are cool even though they don’t taste much different from yellow peppers… I went to the farmer’s market with ‘little-bit’ but they have signs everywhere saying dogs are not allowed… which totally sucks for me… So the delivery service on Wednesday is a tremendous help to me. ๐Ÿ™‚
