Niagara Local Food Co-op. The co-op is in "dire straits financially," Arden says.
I just ate a vegetable pot pie that I didn't make myself, save for reheating it from frozen.
Not my usual fare but I'm still getting back into the swing of cooking for myself since my daughter's arrival four weeks ago. That makes convenience food fair game for me right now.
While I've made a point of ordering regularly from the co-op, which is a virtual farmers market with shopping done online, that order with the vegetable pot pie made the entire two years I've been a member worthwhile. My life is made easier with healthy meal options that I don't have to stress over making myself as I get accustomed to being a sleep-deprived mom running on fumes.
