ORGANIC MADE EASY

2nd December 2015

When it comes to food shopping, my preference is to buy organic, especially for food I’m feeding my babes. However, I don’t find it that easy to find. Most supermarkets have some organic produce, but not that much choice. I know you can find organic products at smaller independent stores but it seems to be a few things from this place and a few things from that place, and with twin toddlers as shopping companions, trekking to more than one place is not so easy. I also find great organic food at local markets but these are mostly on weekends, which means that if I need something on Friday, I’m stuck, and if we miss the market due to other plans we miss buying the food.

All these problems were solved when I found Manic Organic. They make it easy, accessible, and convenient, to include organic products into your weekly meal planning by delivering your choice of fresh organic produce right to your door. We were recently discussing this at our weekly playgroup so I wanted to share since I am sure there are many moms who will be interested. Each week Manic Organic sources organically farmed and seasonal produce. I find I often get stuck in a “grocery rut” and end up buying the same products and ingredients every week. To me, this is also a way to get different things into our kitchen that are in season.

They make it easy to order too – all you have to do is subscribe to their weekly email and they will send you a list of what is available that week with all the prices. It is literally a matter of marking your selection and required quantity on a form and making the online payment. You can read more about how it works here.

FRANCIE SUGAR’S CHRISTENING: PART TWO

1st December 2015
TIN_2241

As you know from yesterday’s post we christened Francie Sugar a couple weekends ago and then celebrated in Kimmy & Bear’s garden. We berry iced tea, my grannies pea and coriander soup, delicious lunch and a dessert table which featured a naked cake made by Kimmy, watermelon and the most yum Pete’s Super Natural Ice cream. We sat under the tree, played lawn games, the babes took their clothes off and ran around the garden… the last people went home at 9pm. It was a magical day.
