Bountiful Baskets – 12/10/2011

10 Dec

This week I got the conventional basket and the organic 9 grain bread.


Didn’t seem to get as much this week, but I’m excited to see asparagus.  Last year, I made a soup with butternut squash and apples, but it didn’t go over great, so I’m on the hunt for something new to make with the butternut squash.


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

      Thank you for the suggestion, Holly! I’m still deciding how to prepare the squash. Good thing it has a long shelf life!
