Basket Breakdown – 5/19/2012

24 May

I apologize for getting this up so late! My brother got married this past Saturday, so we are visiting with family. I didn’t get a basket this week, but still wanted to share what there was and some recipe ideas. Big thank you to Cheryl D. for use of her picture! Oh, and big thank you to Jami C., for ordering the extra case of organic green beans to share and for processing them all for me since I was busy. I love having a great Bountiful Baskets community!

This past weekend’s conventional basket had corn, tomatoes, onion, cucumber, cauliflower, lettuce, lemons, blackberries, strawberries, apricots, pears, bananas, and green peppers.

The tomatoes, onions, and green peppers would make a great Tomato or Pizza Sauce, to go on a Cauliflower pizza crust. Or, they can be diced and added with grilled corn to make Roasted Corn Salsa.

The strawberries and lemons would make an amazing strawberry lemonade. I haven’t had a chance to make it yet, but when I get home, the strawberries and lemon juice ice cubes in my freezer will be used to try it out.

I will not be participating again this weekend, but if I can get a good picture from someone, I’ll try to post, no guarantees! I’m definitely missing Bountiful Baskets!


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.  Cheryl D. also volunteered this week and got 1 extra item for volunteering.
