Our girl Aubrey, AKA our Recipe Developer AKA your Personal Chef, is out on a much deserved vacation this week! So we thought it was the perfect opportunity to feature one of our customers' delicious creations using their Perfectly Imperfect Produce! We LOVE seeing all your posts every week showing us how you turn our "ugly" food into beautiful meals.

Roasted Cherry Tomato Bruschetta

You say tomato, I say tomahtoe. I also say YUM. How is it delivery day again already!? These summer weeks are truly flying!
