Bountiful Baskets – 1/28/2012

28 Jan

I got a lot this week!  I got the conventional basket for $15, the Asian themed veggie pack for $8.50, the case of Pink Lady apples for $22.50, and the 25 lb bag of carrots for $8.50, making my total $56.  I did split the apples and carrots with a friend, who is sharing her honey with me in return (12 lb bucket was $37.50).

Conventional basket had minneolas, yellow onion, apples, blueberries, green peppers, red peppers, tomatoes, green beans, asparagus, cabbage, lettuce, and baby red potatoes.  Not shown is 3 grapefruits, which I gave to a friend because she gave me her cabbage and some peppers.

Asian themed veggie pack had celery, basil, yellow onion, garlic, water chestnuts, green onion, Napa cabbage, eggplant, and snow peas.  Not shown is bok choy, which I gave to my friend for her mom’s pack, since hers was small and not looking real good and I have plenty left from last week’s inherited Asian veggie pack.

One layer of Pink Lady apples.  There is another full layer underneath this, plus another 5 apples.  There are usually 100 apples in the boxes of apples available.  I have half, my friend has the other half.

About half the 25 lb bag of carrots.  These are huge!  My friend has the rest.


I don’t have a picture of the honey yet.  It came in a bucket, so my friend is going to get it split into other containers.  Can’t wait!

I am working making room for all this in my fridge and decide what to make with all of it.  Hopefully, later today or tomorrow, I will have my meal plan for the week with this week’s basket.


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.
