I found out about a local meal-delivery service that sources from local farmers. Even, ahem, now, during the winter. I was excited about their setup for a couple of reasons:

  1. Local veg.

  2. They told us to put out a cooler with cold packs for them to leave the food in. Reuse instead of recycling or waste!



We tried it last week, with the rutabaga pie. I liked the packaging:





which was reusable/recyclable butcher paper and twine. Inside that package were three bags and a recyclable container:





That's a bag of shredded celeriac and onions; a bag of chopped rutabaga, potatoes, carrots, broccoli; a bag of of dough. The container had the pot pie gravy.

I have no idea if this was intentional but I realized: by cutting up the veg for me, that means they can use ugly vegetables. Which I think is awesome and reduces waste. Plus, that's actually a lot less work for me. So that was a real, unexpected plus.

So we sauteed the veg and mixed in the gravy and rolled out the dough [perhaps a tad too thin but whatever] and baked it up:





And then there was pot pie. It was pretty tasty. There's no way I think this was two servings, like they said, but I was really happy to find they included nutritional information with the serving numbers.

So, while their website is awful and their name rather silly, we're going to try them again this week. Veg bi bim bap. We'll see how that goes.
