Bountiful Baskets – 1/21/2012

21 Jan

This week I got the conventional basket for $15 and 5 loaves of organic 9 grain bread (not shown) for $12, making it $28.50 total.

I got bananas, pears, oranges, grapes, pomegranates, kiwi, lettuce, corn, tomatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, and Brussels sprouts.  I’m not sure what I will do with the corn yet, but the broccoli and cauliflower may be used in a pasta dish.  I’m going to try a different method for the Brussels sprouts this week, I will roast them in the oven with some olive oil.

Also, a friend of mine was kind enough to share a loaf of her Italian olive oil bread with me.  This will be used to make some yummy bruschetta.

And, I meant to post this last week, but one of the extras last week was Cinnamon Bread.  Another friend of mine asked me to pick up her basket, and for helping her out, she gave me one of her loaves.  It looked like Monkey Bread almost, and was pretty much gone by the afternoon.

 

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.
