Why am I get so tickled when I open my boxes of produce and other organic goods from the farm?
My friend, Marianne, invited me to a co-op situation where several of us order supplies which are delivered to Marianne's home from out of town. All sorts of things!
Yesterday I found organic eggs in one of the boxes - deep orange yolks! Whoo-hoo!
And beautiful leeks, plump garlic, red and yellow onions, three kinds of potatoes, and forty pounds of firm, gorgeous apples.
A fat, smooth pumpkin. Organic, juicy raisins. A quart of delicious maple syrup! Oh the joy!!
And cod liver oil. Yes, you read cod liver oil. Seems the stuff, considered a sacred food in some cultures, is packed full of essentials. Foul tasting, health restoring excellence. Grandma was right. Who knew?
Maybe the uninhibited thrill is simply my instincts letting me know I'm in the presence of vital sustenance. My body says YES!
Thanksgiving is going to be more fun than ever as I share this bounty with family and friends. (No, not the cod liver oil!)
