Today was our Azure Standard drop day! It’s a big deal in my house since we get most of our monthly food from this drop. This month wasn’t too big of an order due to the fact that it’s summer now and fresh produce is more readily available in my area (and my garden!) Here’s what we got in today.
Straus Family Creamery Yogurt – 6 containers….we love this stuff for smoothies! It’s made with whole milk so it will make great frozen yogurt and it’s full of health cultures.
Natural Frozen Strawberries – 10 pounds. Another item for our smoothies and other yummy summery desserts. These have the best flavor and are cheaper than what I can purchase in my area.
Azure Farm Soft White Wheat Berries – 25 pounds. Now that I have a Wondermill I’m totally wheat-grinder happy. In case you missed it here is one of my how-to posts using the grain mill to make Wheat Crackers.
Morbread Unbleached White Flour – 50 pounds. I’ve started selling homemade goods at farmer’s markets and have been going through the flour like crazy! Good thing I can buy it in bulk.
Organic Yukon Gold Potatoes – 5 pounds. I’m totally obsessed with these potatoes lately so much that I’m not even buying them in season! I’ve got a few potato recipes posted if you need some potato inspiration. (Cheesy Hashbrowns, Cheesy Potato Casserole) Personally I like them best just mashed and covered in fresh butter.
Organic Onions – 3 pounds.
Smithfield Amish Cream Cheese – 9 pounds. Yes, I’m a crazy that buys 9 pounds of cream cheese at a time. This stuff is seriously the BEST though. It’s super creamy and made with non-hormone dairy. We use it in bread recipes, breakfast recipes, and for fruit dip!
Bionaturae Tomato Paste – 3 jars. Love that this is sold in a glass jar. I’m using this to make homemade ketchup. I purchased several this month so I can preserve some ketchup for winter.
Tangerine Essential Oil – To flavor homemade lip balm. (Recipe coming!)
Citronella Essential Oil – For homemade bug spray. (Recipe coming!)
Jojoba Oil – To make homemade shampoo. (Recipe coming!)
Fear-Less Spray – This is new and sold by Azure and looked really interesting so I decided to check it out. I’m hoping it will benefit me for some upcoming public speaking I’m going to have to do. 😉
