Basket Breakdown: 9/8/2012

9 Sep

This week, I contributed for the conventional basket ($15), the Lunch Box fruit pack ($10.50), and the assorted bread pack ($10.00).

Here is how the conventional basket looked this week:


I got Bartlett pears, bananas, peaches, green plums, leeks, broccoli, strawberries, tomatoes, corn, Romaine lettuce, and gold potatoes. I already used the potatoes and leeks in a delicious Potato Leek Soup (recipe coming soon!).  I’m still working on a dessert to make with the rhubarb I got from my Sunizona FarmBox, so I will probably use the strawberries for that.  I may use the corn and tomatoes to make Roasted Corn Salsa.

Here is the assorted bread pack:


This pack had 4 loaves of Savory 9 grain bread, 1 loaf of dill and herb bread, and 1 baguette.  I really like this savory 9 grain bread, I thought it was a little dry at first, but it’s been better and I like it more than the sweet 9 grain bread.  The Dill and Herd bread is interesting, you can really smell the dill, but I’m not sure that it tastes a lot like dill.  To me, it’s almost like a rye bread.  Very tasty!  And, I’ll be making some yummy toasted sandwiches for lunch with the baguette.

Finally, the Lunch Box fruit pack:


It included Gala apples, plums, oranges, apple pears, Bosc pears, and bananas.  Yum!  My daughter has loved taking fruit in her lunch each day, and this is perfect for that!


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.
