We just got our weekly Urban Organics delivery and Eli really needs to stay until Friday next month so she can partake in the delicious-ness. This week we got 4 beets, 4 baking potatoes, 2 white onions, 2 red onions, 1 mango, 2 pears, bag of green beans, 3 bananas, 3 kiwis, 1 eggplant, 6 blood oranges, 2 valencia oranges, 2 grapefruits and 1 head of leaf lettuce. Look forward to borscht, sautéed green beans, cocktails with blood oranges, some twice baked potatoes and possibly much more! For your viewing pleasure, some food porn shots by Patrick below (much better then my boring old shots!).

So tonight I used the kale, half a red onion, and 3 small potatoes from our order to make a Spanish tortilla. A Spanish tortilla is actually more like an omelette or a frittata. It took a bit longer than I would normally like to take on dinner but part of that had to do with the fact that I thought we had eggs and we didn’t so I had to walk to the store. Otherwise it wasn’t so hard. Here it is cooking:

And here’s the final product:

All the hard work paid off because it was totally satisfying and delicious. Knowing Patrick, when he gets home from work tonight he’ll eat it, just with a big dose of hot sauce because the man can’t walk by a bottle without using it…liberally.

Here’s the recipe if you want to try it for yourself. Enjoy!

So winter weather and a nonexistent work environment have put us a bit in the doldrums but we got just the thing to cheer us up! Say hello to our weekly Urban Organics Delivery:

Urban Organics is a company that delivers organic fruits and veggies to your door. We are going try out using it during the winter months until our CSA (community supported agriculture) starts their delivery service in May. We wish it was local AND organic but alas, we don’t live in southern California so it’s not really possible in the winter in the northeast unless we are going to live on potatoes alone. This week our delivery contained:
CORN
ROMAINE LETTUCE
RED KALE
RED POTATOES
JEWEL YAMS
TANGERINES
DAN JOU PEARS
HAMLON ORANGES
BANANAS
MANGO
KIWI
FUJI APPLES
BUNCH CARROTS
CAULIFLOWER
RED ONIONS

Also since we don’t have a child to entertain you (Hi, Carter!) we will try to post pics and recipes (if they turn out well) of our new vegetable adventures. Here’s to full bellies and new adventures in cooking!
