The Latest Ggureomi

Is there anything better than getting a text in the middle of class saying that your box of vegetables will be delivered just around lunchtime? Yes: getting a call from the delivery guy five minutes after you get home saying that he's right there with your package. Just in time for lunch!

This week, the goodies included:

Organic mini-, ultra-crisp "Vitamin Peppers" from Cheongju. Awesome for dipping in ssamjang or humus. Also good in curry and jjigae. Particularly if you still have dwoenjang left from previous months.

Two packs of stew Tofu made from Korean beans.
(For those who receive the normal, non-vegan Ggureomi, one of the tofus was replaced by a carton of ten antibiotic-free natural eggs from Bo-eun.

A bag o' organic lettuce from Jecheon.

Organic green onions from Goesan. Make your own Pajeon pancakes or kimchi.

A cute pesticide-free mini-kabocha squash frmo Jeju. Slice thin and dip in batter to make pancakes; cube it and cook it along with your rice; or even stuff and bake it.

A bag of mini 5-grain ricecake snacks, made from organic rice. MSG-free.

And, the show-stealer: pesticide-free peaches from Sangju.

All of it delivered straight to your door, or your school, or wherever you'd like.
