Just a quick meal plan


I apologise for the rushed photos this week but as it gets closer to winter, the time between when I arrive home to sunset gets smaller and smaller. Soon there will be no more photos to accompany these posts because I can’t bear to use flash.


This week, The Honesty Box delivered:


  • 20 mushrooms
  • A bag of baby spinach
  • 1 avocado
  • 5 tomatoes
  • 1 broccoli
  • 2 capsicums
  • 2 carrots
  • 2 potatoes


  • 1 garlic
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 onions (red and white)
  • 1 spring onion
  • A bag of herbs (rosemary and basil)


  • 2 pears
  • 4 apples
  • 6 bananas
  • 6 mandarins

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


  • Omelette with parmesan, basil and tomato
  • Banana smoothie with peanut butter and chia
  • Lemon sugar pancakes
  • Buttery mushrooms with scrambled eggs and grilled tomato and toast

I am Genie, a graphic designer/photographer obsessed with food and bunnies. I live in Whanganui, New Zealand with my husband, The Koala and our two rabbits, Kobe and Bento. I write about my hedonistic ways and I love the mantra "Eat well, travel often". I prefer not to write about myself in third person.


  1. I know what you mean Genie, that time of year really sucks. In our studio, we had a little cube (about 80cmX80cmX 80cm) made out of translucent white fabric that you could shine a light on the exterior and it would replicate daylight without harsh shadows. It also was collapsible!

  2. I know the feeling of the lesser sun rays of winter and not using flash! Poor you. We’re going into summer so I’m grateful for that. Though mind you, today has been grey, cold and miserable.
    On my camera you need to pup the flash up (like in the vintage ones) and rest assured I’ve never done it 😉
    Very nice box, everything looks like it will be put into good use. xx

  3. That seafood stew looks seriously delicious and I love the way you styled the shot. I’m looking at getting a collapsable light box as this winter light is not a friend of anybody. Will Tofu be benefiting from the Honesty Box delivery?

    • I’m thinking about the light box but I wonder how big it will be?

      Tofu is having an inside day today due to the rain. When he is inside for the day, he benefits from fresh produce as he cannot graze on the free grass and weeds outside. On today’s bunny menu is pellets, baby spinach and fresh hay.

  4. Your menu plan sounds SO GOOD to me; can I come over, esp. when you make steak? 🙂

  5. your commitment to avoiding the flash is admirable – i’m beginning to feel the same way about my own photos. these boxes look delicious though – i’m glad we got to see what’s inside 🙂

    • Hi Jen! In case you haven’t noticed, I am a bit of a food voyeur. I love to share my photos and I also love looking at other people’s food photos. Glad you enjoyed peering into the box.

    That box looks amazing! We used to get deliveries but there wasn’t as much variety so I gave it up 😦 jealous!
