#VegBoxChallenge :: Sweetcorn and salad veg

This week saw my first veg box delivery since the beginning of the summer holidays. Four Seasons Foods are a small family run firm who also run a mobile food wagon Nomad Kitchen and they like to take some time out in the summer with the kids. Deliveries resumed this week once the kids were back at school and I must admit I was really looking forward to receiving my fortnightly box of delights again.

I wasn't disappointed.

Here's what I got this week:

bunch of spring onions
red pepper
french beans
patty pan squash
4 cobs of sweetcorn
half a melon


Lots of salad and fruit - it is still kind of summer after all! - and lovely lovely sweetcorn.

I'm a big fan of corn on the cob. My mum used to have a set of thoroughly modern (in 1978) metal trays with little forks specially designed for serving corn on the cob (I must ask her if she still has them) but I confess I actually like smothering them in butter and picking them up to eat with my fingers, hot melted butter dripping down my chin - and probably my tshirt! - and then licking my fingers afterwards.


I'll show you what I did with the rest of my veggie box in the next veg box post but in the meantime here's some gratuitous sweetcorn piccies...

ps - don't forget you can find loads of ideas and recipes to make sure nothing in your veggie box goes to waste on my Veggie Box Recipes Pinterest board...


Thanks for staying this long :) I would love to hear what you have to say. Don't be shy, this could be start of a beautiful friendship!
