Basket Breakdown – 3/17/2012

19 Mar

This week, I went a little crazy!  I got the conventional basket for $15, the Mexican themed veggie pack for $8.50, 2 tortilla packs for $10.50 each, and the organic 9 grain bread for $12, for a total of $58 after the $1.50 handling fee.

Here is what was in the conventional basket:

Russet potatoes, carrots, pineapple, Pink Lady apples, bananas, tomatoes, Bok choy, Romaine lettuce, green onions, salad savoy, and cucumbers.  There was also cantaloupe, but we were short on it, so my basket did not have it.

The Mexican themed veggie pack had yellow onion, green onion, garlic, tomatillos, avocados, key limes, Poblano peppers, jalapeno peppers, green chiles, and cilantro.  I want to make Salsa Roja, Salsa Verde, breakfast burritos with the Poblano peppers, and enchiladas with the green chiles.

The 2 tortilla packs each had 3 dozen large flour tortillas, 2 dozen small flour tortillas, and 2 dozen small corn tortillas.  These are very good!  They are par cooked, so they have to be refrigerated or frozen, then cooked when you use them.  I use them for all kinds of things.

Not sure if I’ve shown a pictures of it before, but here is how the bread comes.  This 9 grain, the multi grain and the honey whole wheat all come pre-sliced, the other breads do not.  Makes excellent toast and sandwiches, my favorite was using it for Bread & Celery Dressing for Thanksgiving.

I’m excited because this coming weekend (3/24), the new site I have been helping to get open will finally open!  I hope that it all goes well!

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.
