Surprise Bundle from Ugly Food
UglyFood was founded … with a mission to eliminate food waste and revamp the food ecosystem. Our aim is to make sustainability a part of people’s everyday lives. We operate in the fruits and vegetables space by selling excess or ugly produce, our own branded products, and sustainably sourced goods … We stand strongly for beauty being more than skin deep.Ugly Food: Eat Sustainably, for the Better Good
I love my Ugly Food Surprise Bundles!
Not only do I get to help eliminate food waste, I am challenged to research & cook with unusual ingredients (eg, nopales, ice plant, Japanese bean seedlings). Also, I have expanded our cooking/dining repertoire when presented with a generous amount of an ingredient.
This past bundle brought a huge amount of mushrooms: Shitake (from bottom left, going clockwise), Portobello, Oyster King, Brown Swiss- Cremini, shimeji brown & shimeji white (centre)
I woke up the next day dreaming of mushrooms. All run long I thought of what I would make when I got home.
Before breakfast was even entertained, I sauteed up a mix of Shitake, Oyster King & Swiss Browns (Feature Photo, from bottom, clockwise) to use on pasta, sandwiches & whatever might tickle my fancy.
We are still working slowly on our huge stash.

I was very taken with Manja at Embarassment of Riches’ This day in my Blogging History segment at the end of each of her posts. It inspired me to go back to look at some of my old posts; to chuckle in reminiscence and to gape at some of the things which caught my attention then. So here is my This day (or one closest to) in My Blogging History:
- Dec 8, 2020: Running in the Season
- Dec 12, 2019: Honey Spice Cake – Healthy Holiday Bake
- Dec 8, 2018: Finding Treasure – Five Minutes with Peter Pan
- Dec 7, 2017: Street – lesson 2 Establishing Shots
- Dec 8, 2016: Lemons for Coffee
