Bountiful Baskets – 1/7/2012

7 Jan

First basket of the new year!  And, I am very happy with it!  This week, I got the conventional basket for $15 and 1 extra, 1 gallon of organic olive oil for $23.50, so with the $1.5o handling fee, it was $40.

So, I got grapes, bananas, Asian pears, apples, clementines, blackberries, broccoli, tomatoes, avocados, romaine lettuce, onions, spinach, and radishes.

I have a little extra this time because a friend of mine didn’t want her radishes, onions, and avocados, so I happily took them and will find some use for them.   My girls already ate the apples and the blackberries, and a lot of the radishes.  I love that they eat so many different fruits and vegetables.  I think it’s because we get such a variety and see my husband and I eating them that they want to try them too.  The remaining radishes I will most likely use to make Radish Dip, to go perfectly with the crackers I got on sale at the store yesterday.  I considering making Broccoli Cheddar Cheese Soup with the broccoli, just because it was so yummy, but I may search for something different to make.  I need to decide what to make with the spinach, it’s beautiful spinach, leafy and green.  With all the onions, some onion rings might be on the list to make, but I may try to bake them instead of frying them.  With all the avocados, we will probably have Fish Tacos and Guacamole.  I still have tortillas in the freezer for the Fish Tacos, and I just got some tortilla chips on sale too. Good eats this week!

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.  I also volunteered this week and got 1 extra item for volunteering.
