Bountiful Baskets and Car Seat Check- 4/21/2012

22 Apr

I had wanted to get this done yesterday, but I was exhausted after the morning.  Both things that I am currently volunteering at, Bountiful Baskets and car seat checks with San Pedro Kiwanis, were both scheduled at the same time yesterday.  Lucky for me, they were both in the same area!  So, I was able to go back and forth to both yesterday.

First, my car was loaded up with new car seats to have on hand in case we had to replace any during the seat check.  They just fit into the back of my Chevy Equinox!

I stopped and unloaded them, and set up other things for the seat check, then headed over to the Bountiful Baskets site to drop off the sign I made and help them get started on set up.  I like that it’s open and has great scenery with the mountains in full view.

I then was at the seat check for most of the distribution time, and we ended up checking 10 car seats overall.  I was happy with the amount, and we had plenty of technicians on hand to help.  When it was time, I went over and got my basket.  This week, I only got the conventional basket since I didn’t want to worry about getting extras since I wasn’t going to be on site most of the time.  Lots of good things this week!

Spinach, corn, celery, yellow squash, Romaine lettuce, yellow onion, Roma tomatoes, Ambrosia apples, bananas, lemons, strawberries (some are missing because my daughters got to them before I could!), and kiwi.

Here are a few ideas for this week:

Spinach: Spinach Basil Pesto Pizza, Spinach Lasagna Roll ups, Cheesy Spinach Burgers, Sausage Florentine Pizza, Spinach Bacon Shells & Cheese, Spinach Mushroom Quiche, Slow Cooker Spinach, Lentil, & Tortellini Soup, Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip, Spinach Manicotti, Spanakopita  (Can you tell I’m a BIG fan on spinach?!)

Corn: Corn & Broccoli Casserole, Roasted Corn Salsa

And, here is the link to last week’s basket post since some of the items are the same!


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.
