Last week Jennifer was kind enough to do the blog for me while we went on a canoe/backpacking camping trip in Algonquin park.  We took our 11 month old and our 3.5 year old out and did 2 portages and while it was intense (insane?) we had a wonderful time connecting with nature and each other.  We did miss our week to get our box delivered but I just send Jenny a message requesting to have it delayed one week and voila! Yesterday my box showed up without even a reminder! So if you are going on vacation or will be away for whatever reason please don’t hesitate to contact us and have your share delayed until your return.  The new recipe I am going to try with the collard greens is Collard wrapped roasted veggie tamales.
I haven’t ever made anything like this before-and I’m excited to try it when time permits.  If you have any recipes that you care to share please don’t hesitate to link them in the comments below or share on our page on facebook.  Check out the pinterest page for more recipes that Jenny has pinned over the years too!
