Basket Breakdown: 9/1/2012

4 Sep

This week, I got the conventional basket, and 2 extra buy add-ons, 25 lbs of Hatch green chiles and the fajita veggie pack.

This week’s conventional basket had grapefruit, plums, limes, green leaf lettuce, Hatch green chiles, red potatoes, tomatoes, avocados, sweet corn, black seedless grapes, and Bartlett pears.  Lots of green things this week!

I was so excited that they offered Hatch green chiles as an extra again this year!  The box was about 25 pounds, and cost $18!  What a steal!  I have 2 friends that each took 5 pounds, and may be sharing more, but I’m happy with even just 5 pounds.  They look great and smell wonderful, and are just a bit spicy.  Perfect!


The chiles I kept I roasted on the grill, peeled, and then froze, like I did last year.  Only change is that last year I diced them, this year, I left them whole in the freezer bags, just because I didn’t want to take the time with dicing them since I had so many to process.

Finally, the fajita pack.


It contained yellow onion, green bell peppers, red bell peppers, garlic, dried chipotle peppers, and dried red chili peppers.  Not sure if I’ll do fajitas or not, but excited about trying something new!


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.
