More mushrooms!


Another lovely box from The Honesty Box this week. It’s inspiring to get this bounty delivered to our door each week. I figure it’s not laziness, it’s making sure there’s plenty of nutritious stuff to eat each week.

This is a better variety than I could have picked myself. The Koala and I were both impressed at the thoughtfully paper-bagged mushrooms. They arrived in perfect condition. We had two of them with dinner on the first night.

Seasonal things come in fours, apparently:

  • 4 portobello mushrooms
  • 4 tamarillo
  • 4 feijoa

Delighted with yet another avocado. These things are having a long season this year and these tomatoes are still as good as in summer. Still, I’m finally carrying a jacket most days so soup weather is upon us.

Here’s a guide to what we’re eating this week:


  • Porridge with sliced banana, chia and maple
  • Fejioa and banana muffins and a steaming mug of tea
  • Breakfast burrito with beans, scrambled egg, mushroom and guacamole
  • Banana yogurt smoothie
  • Turmeric and herb tomatoes on toast



  • Chickpea, tomato and olive salad with fresh herbs and toasted sunflower seeds
  • Spaghetti with roast peppers, sun-dried tomato, garlic, chili flakes and fresh herbs
  • Steak sandwich with baby spinach leaves, tomato and avocado
  • Fried rice with steak, onion, spring onion, egg and garlic
  • Vegetable stir fry with rice noodles



  • Steak with grilled portobello topped with melted cheese served with a huge salad
  • Spiced Carrot and Coconut soup with buttered toast
  • Chicken burritos with baby spinach, guacamole, sour cream and cheese, served with kumara fries and garlic mayo
  • Lemon and herb baked chicken with kumara gratin and caramalised onions
  • Roast peppers and tomato soup with gluten-free cheese and herb scones (biscuits)




    • Oh yes you do! Do they have them over there? I have been baking feijoa muffins every week now. Once I perfect the recipe, I will post it up on here.

I love your comments! Your comments are like extra melted cheese on top.
