Basket Breakdown 9/10/2011

10 Sep

This week I contributed $15 for the conventional basket, plus the $1.50 handling fee, so $16.50 total.  Here is what I got at Bountiful Baskets this morning.

I got a head of lettuce, spinach, green beans, cauliflower, sweet potatoes, table grapes, peaches, pears, bananas, figs, and plums.

The lettuce and spinach I washed and dried, so wish I had a salad spinner to help with drying.  Then, I wrap it in paper towels and put it in gallon size zipper bags, making sure to let as much air out as I can.  It really helps keep it fresh longer.  Cauliflower, I might try making roasted cauliflower as a side to salmon and rice.  The sweet potatoes, I will probably make sweet potato fries as a side to cheesy spinach burgers.  Green beans, I might blanch and freeze.  I’m still working on ideas for the figs, possibly a fig cake or cookies.  We’ll see how the week goes for cooking!
