PARENTING, TRAVEL, AND LITTLE JOYS

We're currently doing our part by staying at home. We haven't been in a building that isn't our house for 12 days. I'm a vegetarian and we try to eat lots of fruits and veggies, so going without trips to the grocery has been a little tough. Plus, being stuck inside makes you want to eat junk basically all day!
So we decided to give Misfits Market a try. Generally I don't love when you don't know what you're getting ahead of time, but the price seemed reasonable ($39.50 including shipping) given that our other options right now are instacart or going to the grocery store and potentially being exposed to a pandemic.
Just 2 days later, the box arrived! Normally I would have taken a cool unboxing video, but we're currently opening everything outside and washing items before they come in the house. Eeks.
My first major concern was whether the packaging would be wasteful. I was pleasantly surprised that the box is almost 100% recyclable packaging, less a couple pieces of tape, a few compostable "plastic" bags, and 2 small icepacks.
My next concern was that the stuff would be weird items we wouldn't eat, bad condition items, or lots of the same thing. Nope! There was only one little bruise on one tomato, and otherwise everything was in great condition. Most of the items are organic versions of things we would eat, even if they aren't what we'd normally buy.
What did we get?
Organic lemons, organic fuji apples, green peppers, red and yellow peppers, parsnips, potatoes, organic tomatoes, oranges, brussel sprouts, red cabbage, organic celery, organic kale, green onions, and carrots.
In a time when we really don't want to go to the grocery store but still want to eat healthy, this was really worth it for us.

And then since we're playing with everything we can get our hand on, being stuck inside, we played "Garden" for a while. Honestly that alone was basically worth it.
