Notes on the box.

 We tried to get Romanesco in as many boxes as we could, but it's coming on pretty slowly.  Hopefully next week if you didn't get it this week.  Last chance, Romanesco!  Grow grow grow!  We love the flavor of this natural fractal.  Like cauliflower, but crunchier and more mild and nutty.  Fantastic cut up and roasted or sautéed.  

Cheese share.  

Packed in the box this week (not in a separate box)  is a big chunk of Aquila, our young jack style cheese.  It's one of Josh's favorites.  It's milky, mild and salty.  Makes a really wonderful grilled cheese sandwich or nachos.
