Celeriac is your Friend

We signed up for an organic, local fruit and vegetable delivery service a couple months ago in an effort to eat healthier and focus on local, in season foods. As you can see, it's encouraged us to try some new things. We're pretty vegalicious here at the HTH household but there are some veggies that we hadn't tried, the above being one of them. As it turns out, the aforementioned is a celery Root, or celeriac and it ended up in a quite delicious potato/celeriac gratin. My favorite thing about this service, provided by Organics to You, it opening up our box and decided what to cook from our surprise bounty. We've also been eating so much healthier, focusing on whole foods and less processed sugars. We are on the waiting list for a CSA starting in the spring but I think this will get us through the winter nicely.

In Plum news, it seems like she is growing and changing every day. What an exciting time this is for us! She's scooting around now, rolling from front to back, grabbing everything in sight and becoming quite the little comedian. She just loves to laugh and loves to make us laugh, which we've been doing a lot of. She also is completely and utterly in love with Rigby, her new BFF. Although he's really great with her, Rigby's not quite sure that it qualifies as love just yet. I think we'll get there though.

  1. Tee-hee...love the little tushie up in the air!

    Only one word for little brother, though. DORK. I hope for Plum's sake it is a recessive gene!

  2. Your celeriac reminds me of a term paper I did once on "Medieval European Medicine," because the celeriac, with all sprouty root pieces, looks kind of like a mandrake root (which was highly valued for healing powers). I really like the "Organics to You" web site with its moving graphics and little truck that drops produce at your door.

    Once again, a cute, cute picture of the sweet little Plum.
