Everything seen here was purchased at Cliff’s Country Market. I went with my sister as she had never been there before. We had a very interesting and fun conversation with an employee about when a person can tell certain fruits are ripe. We discussed how when local cantaloupes are in season, one can smell them from the parking lot. Mmm.
We also talked about the future of the business, and I, like always, gently suggested beautiful, fantastic bulk bins! Apparently the owner doesn’t want children getting into them and has some other hesitations about them. I think pull down bins would be the best option if there is concern about children’s hands going into the bins and contaminating the contents. Perhaps someday!
They were having a sale on mangoes! 12 for $8, so of course I had to get them. When I worked in Australia, I would stop and buy a mango each time I made a delivery to a certain fruit and veg shop. It was such a treat, and mangoes are difficult to find around these parts (for good reason!), but I just couldn’t resist.
I’m thinking of making this trending vegan mango coconut yogurt from Minimalist Baker.
Other items on my list include:
- Greek salad
- Watermelon salad
- White bean + sweet potato burgers
- Tacos (still some mushrooms in the fridge) + freshly cooked black beans
- Roasted cabbage wedges
- Ginger beer (always!)
Ok so my life hack is probably not new to anyone but myself, but you never know when a tip can be just the thing you never thought about doing that could change a so-so day into an awesome day.
I started taking all the produce stickers off my fruit & veg as soon as I get home! That way I don’t have to worry about them as I put peels / rinds in the compost / vinegar jar, etc. It doesn’t hurt that it looks way prettier when I take a photo of my groceries. I never thought I would ever be taking photos of my groceries… yet here I am.
Peace and love,
