    Looks delicious! How often are you shopping for fresh produce? I’m having trouble keeping fresh veggies since we can’t go to the store weekly.

      Hey! somehow I missed this one! sorry! I do go to the store once a week usually Thursday mornings before I get the kids and shop for the week. We eat a lot of produce so I finds it lasts for a week. I also get a local farmers bag with veggies from a local farmer here:)
