We signed up for a fall share with the same farm that we partner with at work, but this time around we cut back to a small share because we were getting a TON of produce. I’ll continue to share our experience, meals, and tips with you guys!

Catching Up On Eats

Since I haven’t been posting many Weekly Eats posts in the past month, I thought I would just do one giant post of the food I’ve been hoarding pictures of on my phone eating lately, holiday celebrations excluded. These are in no particular order, and this post is CERTAINLY not all-encompassing. It’s just the highlights. I may take this mass update approach to my food posts from now on instead of doing weekly recaps, but I know some of you prefer the weekly recaps to help you with meal planning.What do you guys think?
