Gourmet all the way, worth every penny

I can't believe I'm lucky enough to live in the delivery area for this weekly harvest of local, sustainable, gourmet meats, fish, fruits, vegetables, pies, nuts, coffee, preserves, etc. etc.
I joined CSA's when I lived in other states and I was a regular at the one in Topanga when I lived there. This is a very different experience, and I find the variety and substance of the Couples box is enough to get my family of 3 through most of the week (leaving 1 night to go out, or two, if I want to freeze something).
There are bigger boxes for larger families.
One of the best features is the meal plans. I don't have to think about what to make for dinner each night; the recipes are all made from what's in the box.
My local market, Maddy's, is sorry to see me join OBS, I'm sure. I was spending quite a lot there every week but now I only buy cleaning supplies and dog food there.
This actually saves me money on groceries!
