The other day, a representative from Relay Foods came to the door. I was the only one home, so she talked to me. Relay Foods is pretty cool- you order groceries on their website (and we're talking all the local, organic awesome food, like the kind you buy at farmers markets and stuff), and then you pick them up at a specified pick-up area on a specified day.
They were selling welcome kits for 70% off, so I thought, "Hey, why not?" I bought a kitchen basics kit for $15.
Today I walked almost literally across the street to the elementary school (seriously, a five minute walk) and grabbed my bag of food. The people at the truck were super friendly. They had my order all ready to go in a plastic bin that was insulated with some kind of pillowy thing and had a label with my name on it. The lady also checked my eggs to make sure none were broken. The whole experience just gave me the feeling that they really cared about my food and me.
Here's what I got!
Ah, the local, organic goodness. And I didn't have to go to the grocery store to get them. Also, this is the first time in my life that I've ever seen milk in a glass bottle. They actually ask people to bring the milk bottles back so they can use them again. They give you your deposit back if you do.
I'm pretty happy with my purchase, but my favorite is the sunflower bread. THIS IS SOME OF THE BEST BREAD I'VE EVER TASTED. It's sweet, chewy, not too crunchy, and it's got sunflower seeds baked into it. So awesome.
So I give Relay Foods an A+ for their welcome kits. I'm not sure if I'm going to buy a whole lot else from them because it might get a little expensive, but I might need to get another loaf of sunflower bread. Seriously, it's one of those WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIIIIIIFE moments.
If you've been keeping up with the blog, you might be a little confused as to why I did not post a cartoon today. Well, I worked on it for a few hours. I have one panel completely finished. But as I was working on it, I decided that the comic just wanted to be colored. So I'm coloring it. And it's taking longer, as I knew it would. But it just looks so much better that way...
(If you've seen this episode of Spongebob, you'll understand what I really mean)
(It'll probably go up in the middle of the night.)
To tide you over, here's another low-quality photo I took of my computer screen with my cell phone. Because I'm apparently too lazy for screenshots.
