Saturday Fresh Picks!

Good morning! The rain has finally stopped and the sun is shining! After returning from crossfit yesterday morning, my second order from Irv and Shelly’s Fresh Picks had arrived! We nearly used up all of the produce from the last order, so I went ahead and ordered another fruit and veggie box! I am loving having this little surprise arrive every weekend!


Here is what we got: 1 bunch Swiss chard, 1 bunch lettuce, 1 grapefruit, 1 small head red cabbage, 1 sweet potato, 1 lime, 3 parsnips, 1 bag burdock root, 6 oranges, 3 Granny Smith apples, 1 mango, 1 leek, 2 zucchini, a brown bag of cremini mushrooms, a jar of pear preserves and my favorite part – 2 potted basil plants!

Yesterdays TEAM WOD at crossfit was tough. We haven’t gone to Saturday morning crossfit in a while so it was fun to see some familiar faces and start the day off with a good workout.

TEAM WOD (1 partner works while the other partner rests)

3 rounds for time with a 30 minute time cap

  • 50 wall balls (14#)
  • 50 sumo deadlift high pulls (55#)
  • 50 box jumps
  • 50 push press (55#)
  • 50 calorie row

My partner and I finished 2 rounds plus 50 reps in the 30 minutes. Even though I felt like we were flying, we didn’t even come close to finishing. Nevertheless, we got a killer workout, which is ultimately the overall goal!

After a day of working and cleaning, Will and I went to dinner at our neighborhood bar and grill – The Scout. I love their grilled vegetable panini and the fact that they have some of my favorite beers on tap!

Today I’ve got a busy day getting some work done and grocery shopping. With all the new produce we’ve received, here is what is on the menu this week!

Chimichurri steak with capers and roasted root vegetables

Spicy fish tacos with cabbage cilantro slaw and mango orange salsa

Roasted tomato, mozzarella and basil flatbread

Black bean and chard quesadillas with fresh homemade guacamole

I want to find out if our rooftop grills are available for use yet – summer is right around the corner! Cheers!
