Bountiful Basket

Today we participated in the Bountiful Basket program. It was amazing! So for $15 we got a bunch of fruits and vegetables and for $10 we got 5 loaves of 9-grain bread which is absolutely delicious. Here is what we got:

3 Red Pummelos

1 Cantalope

2 Bunches of Bananas

1 carton Strawberries

6 Oranges

4 Green Apples

2 Zucchini

6 Roma Tomatoes

1 Head Lettuce

1 Head Broccoli

1 Head Cauliflower

2 Heads Asparagus

Not too bad! I was planning on buying strawberries later today but now I don't have to. Those alone would be about $5 at the grocery store. They've said that the Bountiful Basket is about $50-60 worth of produce, which makes $15 seem like a fantastic deal. If anyone has recipe ideas for any of our delicious fruits and veggies let me know!

I think we're planning on doing a broccoli cheese soup and maybe a cauliflower soup as well. The asparagus is about the only thing I'm not quite sure what to do with. I think we'll have BLTs today for lunch and we'll probably try the red pummelos with breakfast/lunch today.

Anyway, to say the least we were really excited for all of the fruits and veggies at such a great price!
