Bountiful Baskets – 10/15/2011

15 Oct

This week I ordered a conventional basket, a Mexican veggie pack, tortilla pack, and 9 grain bread.  I was very pleased with this week’s basket, I have a lot of ideas of what to make.

Here is what was in the conventional basket, the 9 grain bread, and the tortilla pack.

Here is the Mexican veggie pack.

I’m thinking of Broccoli Cheese Cornbread, Roasted Cauliflower, Fish Tacos, and Pear Cake as a start.  I used one bag of carrots already for egg rolls.  I will probably make salsa verde with the tomatillos, to use for enchiladas or quesadillas.  The large tortillas I will use to make some breakfast burritos because eggs were buy one, get one free at Fry’s this week.  The burritos will probably be scrambled eggs, turkey sausage, poblano peppers, possibly potatoes too.  I will probably also be making salsa and guacamole.  And we’ll see what else as the week goes on!

Note: The amount of food may vary from another basket because of volunteering and because of variances in how the ends of produce cases are distributed after everything has been distributed evenly.
