"I heard it from a friend who...heard it from a friend who..." Sorry, musical moment!
A couple of weeks ago, a friend posted on Facebook that she had gotten a "Bountiful Basket" and posted a picture of a counter FULL of yummy looking produce. My interest was peaked and I did some investigating. Sure enough, they have a distribution site near me.
My sister and I ordered on Monday and on Saturday we went out to pick up our baskets. (See them lined up!)
For $16.50, I received:
2 Spaghetti squash (Traded my bunch of asparagus to my sister who loves them for her spaghetti squash which she detests. Silly sister!)
1 head butter lettuce
4 roma tomatoes
3 green peppers
4 of the largest carrots that I've ever seen
2 heads of garlic (I ended up with 4 as sister doesn't like garlic either. Go figure!)
4 HUGE Braeburn apples (my fave)
4 lbs of Moro blood oranges
5 mini pears (so cute)
I think it was a great deal. I got a lot more fruit than I would normally buy. That is probably a good thing as it is easy for me to eat lots of vegetables, but I have a tough time getting in my fruits.
So, I have been a busy bee planning my meals around my lovely vegetables. I don't want a single one to go to waste.
Hmmm.... can't wait to see what is in the next baskets...
