autumn has come and the temperature is going down quickly here. so i was wondering, what to cook to heat up my day and use my seasonal vegetables from the regional and organic delivery service. it is a real nice little organic online shop that trades vegetable and fruits from the local farmers around. as I live in a small city, without a  farmers market and the supermarket lifestyle is lived by most people here, i am happy about having an alternative. and the awesome thing especially now that i am pregnant is, that they deliver once a week to my house. great!
