Weekly Box: December 4th & 5th

this week's box full of carrots, beets, apples, fennel, broccoli, celery, pears and cauliflower.

 I hope everyone had an amazing Thanksgiving!  I had a wonderful day with my family at our home.  We cooked together in the kitchen while others shot trap.  We always fry one turkey and smoke another on the Traeger grill.  Every year it is hard to decide which one is better! My vote this time was the fried turkey.  I hope our box made your Thanksgiving just a bit more relaxing!  This week we did our best to create something contrary to last week's box.  We included Beets and Fennel for a little change up in your menu!

Fennel?  What to do with Fennel!  I take mine and cut the bulb into quarters or eighths, depending on size, toss with olive oil and vinegar, and roast at 400  on a baking sheet!   I like to use grated fresh parmesan on top!  
I had no idea how nutritious fennel is AND it offers an abundance of impressive health benefits.  Adding them to your diet may improve heart health, reduce inflammation, suppress appetite, and even provide anticancer and antibacterial effects.

ENJOY THIS WEEK's BOX!

Shelby's son Declan posing on his bike
If you aren't up to speed on the Armor Compound we have a dirt bike track.  My 3 boys have been learning to ride.  This kid, Declan, is really good and just had an accident at DT1 in Tulare.  Thankfully he came out with only a slight concussion and gash in his arm a couple layers deep. We'd love if you would pray for him.

Have you gotten your Christmas tree?  We found ours this weekend at the Avila Valley Barn!  We let the kids pick it out and of course, they picked the biggest tree on the lot!  We LOVE it.  Tis the season!  I hope you enjoy this week's box and are experiencing the Christmas spirit!
 
Blessings,
