Weekly delivery - Manna from Heaven!

My husband and son and I are enjoying this service from SLO Veg so much that we have become weekly customers! This way we won't miss out on any of the fantastic produce that they deliver to our doorstep. We had started out with a bi-weekly delivery to see how far the food went, but I felt we were missing out when our off week had something in the box that I really liked.
This week we are getting cauliflower. That is like the Paleo eater's holy grail, or at least like manna from heaven! It has become one of the most versatile of vegetables, because you treat it like a potato, mashing it up and serving it with sauce, or adding cheese, roasting it or making it into patties. I even saw a recipe for Buffalo cauliflower! We also get snap peas this week, one of my favorite veges to eat raw!
The menu suggestions for this has me intrigued as well. Grapefruit cake? Mac and smoked Gouda with cauliflower? I'm thinking "Yum!" I've got to make some baked apples for dessert, too!
Another cool thing that is happening is that people I have been telling about this service have been signing up for veggie totes in their areas. Some are in North County, so they have to use a different company, but they love the concept. I have a friend in Ohio that just signed up with a co-op and a niece in Arizona who is doing it also. At least 5 people at my work are going to try it, as well!
