Basket Breakdown – 6/2/2012

5 Jun

I’m a little behind in getting this up, but with just getting back from a trip and preparing to lead a Child Passenger Safety Technician certification course, I’ve been busy.

That being said, this past week, I got a conventional basket for $15 and a fresh herb pack for $12.

This week we had a mixed melon (a cantaloupe and honeydew hybrid, I believe), strawberries, apples, oranges, mangoes, bananas, lettuce, potatoes, kale, avocados, and garlic.

I ended up with extra kale from some friends who didn’t want it, so I got a new salad spinner to wash all of it and make kale chips.  I may also make Zuppa Toscana since I also got potatoes.

The fresh herb pack smelled wonderful!  At top from left, chives, garlic, basil, and thyme.  Bottom from left, tarragon, sage, marjoram, oregano, rosemary, and mint.

I made a delicious chicken dish with some of the tarragon.  I may use some tarragon with salmon similar to the chicken.  I’ll probably make pesto with the basil, and will end up freezing or drying some of the rest of the herbs.

Note: The type and amount of food may vary from another basket because of geographic location and because of variances in how case ends are distributed once everything is distributed evenly. I also volunteered and got an extra item for volunteering.
