But what this thread has done is given me a idea for a money making scheme when I retire. I'm hoping to have a very large vegetable garden and my meals could feature whatever vegetable is plentiful in the garden that particular week. I might have to give this some serious consideration and include construction of a professional kitchen facility as one of the buildings on the property(ies) we're hoping to buy.
I think even just providing some recipe cards with the vegetables could be a great move to motivate people.
I have a friend who gets a weekly CSA type vegetable haul and he sometimes get vegetables he has no idea what to do with, or potatoes every week in the winter, so having some inspiration with it could be nice.
My ex group of friends had a different take on a cooking/diner club, every month or two a few of us would get together with an app, main and dessert recipe to try and we would all work on them, dividing the cost afterwards (they had been doing this since young adults/students so that was needed to keep the cost manageable, it wasn't a hosting situation and was often at the same peoples home so wouldn't have been fair otherwise).
This would force us to find tasty new recipes, try new things, and would offset the cost of some ingredients.
