Basket Breakdown – 3/31/2012

31 Mar

This week, I got the conventional basket, the Italian themed veggie pack, and the DIY cookie kit.  Here is what was in the baskets this week.


The conventional basket had Romaine lettuce, grape tomatoes, cauliflower, asparagus, Mexican squash (pretty similar to zucchini), butter gold potatoes, bananas, Granny Smith apples, minneolas, grapefruit, and pineapple.

The Italian themed veggie pack had yellow onion, red onion, green onion, garlic, eggplant, zucchini, mushrooms, lemon, rosemary, Italian flat parsley, and lemons.

The DIY cookie pack had egg shaped cookies and white, yellow, red, and blue colored frosting.  My girls and I had fun decorating (and eating) these today.


I’m working on a meal plan this week, but here are some previous recipes I’ve made using what was in today’s baskets and veggie pack.

Cauliflower: Twice Baked Cauliflower, Cauliflower Pizza Crust, Garlic Herb Chicken with Broccoli and Cauliflower, Roasted Cauliflower

Asparagus: Roasted Asparagus, Grilled Asparagus, in a stir fry

Mexican squash/Zucchini: Moussaka, Ratatouille, Italian Zucchini Crescent Pie, Easy Cheesy Zucchini Bake, Sausage, Zucchini, and Tomatoes over Rice

Potatoes: Crash Hot Potatoes, Mashed Potatoes, Slow Cooker Potato Soup, Kotopoulo Lemonato, Sausage and Potato PIe

Eggplant: Moussaka, Eggplant Pizzas, Ratatouille

And lots more!  Hoping to get the meal plan worked out tomorrow.


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.
