Hi there, friends! Happy Hump Day! How’s your week going?

As some of you know, I started using farmhouse delivery to get my produce from local Austin farmers. I love this service because they share seasonal, sustainable foods in each bushel.

This week I got the medium bushel with:

  • Lettuce
  • Bok choy
  • Grapefruit
  • Red potatoes
  • Carrots
  • Sugar snap peas

I’m using this service to help me grow my cooking chops. I’m not a bad cook by any means but I stick with the same foods that I am comfortable using! So when I received grapefruit, I literally had no idea what to do with it; all I could think of was making a vodka greyhound 😀

That’s where the other benefit of farmhouse delivery comes in. They don’t just give you produce but also include recipes to kickstart your cooking.


This week, I am testing out their salad with grapefruit and snap peas. It’s a great example of taking a recipe and modifying based off of your likes/dislikes and what’s available. For example, I am not a huge fan of avocado, couldn’t find fennel, and wanted to add more protein, so I made the below.

Sometimes you gotta take what you’ve got and make it work. This turned into a delicious Saturday lunch!
