speaking of vegetables  
it's been great finally being able to cook for someone other than myself, but we have this problem. even being in a big city, with all sorts of things within a block or two away, the nearest supermarket is still no closer than it was in minneapolis - which was no closer than the nearest supermarket was in pittsfield. its actually more difficult here in chicago, because i can't ride a bike around as easily - i don't know how people can stand riding bikes at all in a city this crowded.

it's ok for shopping occasionally, but i find myself in need of fresh vegetables on a very regular basis, if i want to do frequent cooking, rather than heating up instant dinners or ordering out all the time. we've tried peapod.com, but they're kind of expensive, and lacking selection, and i'm never crazy about other people picking out my produce for me - some of it has been questionable, and gone bad even more quickly than it should. maybe most of all, like lugging bags of groceries around, it's ok occasionally, but more problematic to do as often as i'd need to not to run out of supplies.

why is food always so complicated? despite how much better things are, it still seems like the kitchen is empty more often than not. even enjoying to cook as much as i do, it still manages to be a pain in the ass.
