MORE FROM THE CARDBOARD CORNUCOPIA

We got another box of veggies and fruits. Here are some of them. Plus a nice healthy looking breakfast that features NONE of these fruits and veggies!

Avocados

Romaine lettuce, carrots, and cilantro

Gypsy peppers

Tomatoes

Fresh squeezed orange juice, tea, some sort of melon from the Korean market, a whole wheat waffle, and eggs. Yummy!
