On Saturday we had the inaugural dinner and divvying out of the first food order of the family co-op we have set up. It was a lot of fun. We spent an hour weighing out the food and distributing it to the different people who had ordered, and then shared a delicious pot luck dinner together. There were sacks of flour, chick peas, jasmine rice, rolled oats and many packets of yeast for all the breadmakers in our midst. The apricots and the dates are wonderful! Sure is a fun thing to do and it certainly saves money. Now I just need to buy some 20kg food buckets!
It was fun weighing out the smaller food stuffs like dates and apricots and raisins.
