Please let me know if you use it and what you think! If you have any requests or suggestions I’d love to hear them.

Meal Plan:

♥ Monday – Miso Glazed Scallops with Soba Noodles
♥ Tuesday – Mushroom Risotto
♥ Wednesday – Dinner with Granny & Poppy
♥ Thursday – Dinner at Ikea with Amy!
♥ Friday – Cauliflower Soup
♥ Saturday – Simple Braised Lentils with Chicken
♥ Sunday – Beef & Red Wine Pies

Two new themes for this week’s meal plan – Our first delivery from Andy and Ted Fresh Produce and Charlotte Wood’s new book – Love and Hunger.

We’ve been wanting to get a fruit and vegetable delivery for a while but have stuck to buying from our local grocer to keep prices down. I finally convinced Mr Monkey to order one these weekend from Andy & Ted (they deliver on Saturdays). This company is a little different from some of the others – you pay per box but you are able to pick which items are in each box. We paid $38 which gave us 10 options. For our money we got:
♥ Avocado (2 pieces)
♥ Bananas (5 pieces)
♥ Beans (0.40 kg)
♥ Broccoli (2 heads)
♥ Cauliflower (1 whole)
♥ Kiwifruit (4 pieces)
♥ Leeks (2 pieces)
♥ Mushrooms (0.2 kg)
♥ Potatoes (Desiree) (8 pieces)
♥ Tomatoes (4 pieces)

Not bad for $38! They buy all the produce direct from the growers at the markets and deliver it straight to our door in a huge wooden box. The produce looks great – like what we get from the Grocer compared to the major supermarkets. I’ve based our meal plan for the first half of this week around the veggies we got delivered and then will reorder on Thursday night for a new delivery on Saturday.

Last Saturday I attended a high tea at Better Read Than Dead bookshop with author Charlotte Wood for her new novel Love and Hunger. I’ve just finished reading L&H and loved it. I’ll hopefully write a full review soon but the rest of the recipes for this week are from the novel. I’m even making my own pastry for the pies!!!

Should be quite a fun week this week. I’ll let you know how it all goes. :)

What’s on your meal plan this week? And do you get your fruit and veg delivered?
