…or The Mystery of the Missing Box!
Yes, this post is a whole week late. That’s because there was a bit of intrigue surrounding last week’s veg box delivery! Mainly because it didn’t arrive on Tuesday as it ought to have done. I emailed my delivery person but didn’t hear anything, and I started to wonder whether I’d got the wrong week (apart from the fact that the money had come out of my account).
Then, on Thursday morning, I went downstairs to go to work and there was my veg box, sitting in the hallway! There was a note attached from a very apologetic neighbour of mine, who evidently also has Riverford boxes delivered – they’d delivered mine to her house instead, and it had taken her a day to realise it was the wrong week for her box! Very nice (and honest) of her to return it – and she was mortified by the fact that she’d eaten my swiss chard!
So eventually, I got my box – minus the chard but with a cute little butternut squash, a green cabbage, potatoes, red peppers, carrots and mushrooms. I then went away for the weekend, so I haven’t used much of my veg yet, but this evening I made some yummy fajitas.
I just fried some onion, one of the peppers, a load of mushrooms and a big handful of cabbage with some smoked paprika, chilli flakes and a clove of gorgeous smoked garlic (which I picked up at a fab smokery near my parents’ house) and wrapped all the veg up in a couple of tortillas. Well, actually they were Loyd Grossman chapattis, which I’ve been meaning to try for ages – they’re far lower in calories than tortilla wraps (under 100 per chapatti) and they were really tasty!
