Basket Breakdown: 8/18/2012

20 Aug

I finally made it back to my regular A week site.  It’s just been a busy few weeks and since I have to be at my site on B weeks, A weeks are my week to catch up on other things in life.  This week, I contributed for a conventional basket, the guacamole veggie pack, and the assorted bread pack.

Here is how the conventional basket looked:

This week, we got bananas, nectarines, plums, grapes, radishes, Romaine lettuce, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, tomatoes, and onions.

My husband and kids were very excited about the radishes.  I also brought home a few friends radishes, so we are set on them for the week!  I will make some Radish Dip, and may try roasting them to see how they turn out.  I will be making either salsa or tomato sauce with the tomatoes, just have to decide which.  Not sure on the Brussels sprouts, either shredded or roasted, though.


Next, the guacamole veggie pack.

It contained Anaheim green chiles, yellow onions, garlic, green onions, jalapenos, avocados, and limes.  My cilantro didn’t make it in the picture, but that was in here too.  So, of course, I will make Guacamole, but I may make jalapeno poppers, and roast and dice the chiles for later, since I don’t like my guacamole too spicy.


Finally, here is the assorted bread pack.

It had 3 loaves of Savory 9 Grain bread (different from the regular 9 grain Bountiful Baskets offers), 1 loaf of English muffin bread, and 1 baguette.  I haven’t tried the baguette yet, but the other 2 breads are very good.  We’ve been toasting the English muffin bread and spreading homemade strawberry jelly on it for breakfast in the morning.


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.
