Imperfect Food for Two
We’ve been ordering from imperfectfoods.com. I was tired of the same old thing being offered at our local grocery store. It’s just Jerry and me now so I thought we might benefit from fresher produce and smaller portions. So far it’s been great and one hidden benefit was discovering how much I missed cooking better quality foods with high quality ingredients. I am not a “recipe follower” and much more like an intuitive chef. Here are just a few of the dinners I’ve cooked since receiving our imperfect food boxes: Chicken and Shrimp with lemon and white wine, the fresh shallots and lemons made all the difference; kale and sausage soup, sweet potato wedges with a drizzle of olive oil, fresh nutmeg and sea salt. April made the best tasting gnocchi and tomato sauce from a jar that tasted like it came from a restaurant. Our salads are garnished with three cheese shreds and the Spanish dried salami is to die for. They even offered sourdough loaves. No one makes really great sourdough around here.
It certainly costs equal to, and sometimes less than, shopping at the local stores and the best part is it comes right to our door every Tuesday.,
