We discovered Milkandeggs.com several weeks ago
and I’ve been meaning to post about it on the blog as I have on Instagram. They have a lovely variety of locally farmed fresh fruits and veggies, meat, seafood, condiments and more. No minimum spend for free delivery. They even have a great selection of Asian veggies like bok choy and daikon and handmade dumplings! All at really affordable prices.

This was the second time I’ve ordered from their website and was pleased with the two-day delivery. They’re based in Long Beach, CA, so if you order in the morning, it’s likely to arrive at your doorstep before 7:00am the next day. Unfortunately, our delivery driver wasn’t able to access our driveway since she had difficulty using the intercom and called me at 5:30am. Right before Coral had a low BG alert on her Dexcom CGM. I called security to let her up the driveway. Not sure what might’ve been wrong because the leasing office staff was able to use my code at the intercom.
Nonetheless, I received a notification via text message that my “order has been delivered.” I placed our previously used cooler tote from our first order outside for the exchange. Bummed to see these two bags weren’t in that same cooler tote as I presumed. Oh well, someone else will be pleasantly surprised. I brought in both tote bags, each with a gel ice pack on the bottom. Here’s what I ordered:
- Bok Choy – I mistakenly thought it was baby bok choy so typed in “5” for the quantity at checkout, but holy shit these babies are huge! I gave one to the neighbor.
- Daikon – almost wide as our fridge
- 8oz oxtail (frozen) – It’s been defrosting in our fridge for oxtail soup tomorrow!
- Organic Rainbow Carrots (bunch) – for the oxtail soup. I’m hoping Coral will eat ’em because their colorful.
- Organic cilantro – love topping off oxtail soup with this peppery plant
- Northern Cafe Dumpling Pork & Napa Cabbage – handmade dumplings to be placed in light broth for these chilly winter nights in SoCal.
- Pork Chop Center Cut (Bone-in) x 2 – I love bone-in pork chops either on the grill or pan fried with sweet onions, garlic salt and pepper. Maybe a bit of thyme too.
