A box!

The cats investigate the box

I’ve been away in a town called Linköping for two days due to work and today when I came home just a few minutes before 5 P.M I was getting ready to call the customer support at Årstiderna as my organic box wasn’t delivered yet. The boxes are delivered on Thursdays, latest at 5 P.M so I was wondering if they had forgotten about me. But just 2 minutes to 5 P.M. the door bell rang and when I opened, my box stod in front of the door and the delivery man had already dissapeared. The cats were very curious of the box of course, a lot of new smells. And I was very curious aswell! So what did we get in our “Mixlåda”?

2 bell peppers
A bag of rocket salad
1 cauliflower
4 tomatoes
A bag of Jerusalem Artichokes
2 onions
3 shallots
9 bananas
4 apples
5 oranges

For next Thursday I’ve ordered a “Singellåda”, less veggies and fruits but with some groceries instead. Among the preliminary ingredients for next week are Pear syrup, tangerine jam, pasta, lemon, spinach, apples etc. Everything organic of course.

Yummy

    Looks lovely, Dagmar, it really does. Do they also provide information re: the origin of the produce. I guess you could still find some nice Swedish apples maybe?
    I can imagine all the fun you have planning the menu. Roasted cauliflower? Artichoke soup and gratin? And rocket is of course best served with a goat’s cheese and bacon salad;-)

    I’ve got friends in Linköping and we’re going to see them in may.
    this system of boxes full of good things is a real good idea!
    I hope they will do the same in France one day!

    Hehehe your cats sniffing the box remind me of ours – they are so fascinated by any box or bag we bring into the house. If we don’t put away our vegetables quick enough, Pixel will nibble on the edge of the lettuce.

    Pille,
    Yes, the company provide information on the origin of the products. Unfortunately nothing was from Sweden this time.

    Fredrik is terrified now when I’m planning the menu. He is a real carnivore and it will be a hard time convincing him to eat the Jerusalem artichoces or cauliflower, but I’ll try do do something really nice :-)

    Milie,
    How fun that you’re coming to Sweden in May. Linköping is really cosy.

    tpf,
    *lol* How hilarious that your Pixel likes lettuce!! Cats are just wonderful :-)
