Bountiful Baskets - September 14

Busy, busy, busy.

But it is still Saturday, and I am writing up my post about my baskets!!

This week, I got two baskets, two packages of Spicy Wraps (they look marvelous) and I split a box of peaches with a friend.  Trina snapped a picture of my basket...

This included:
  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 1 bunch Romaine lettuce
  • 1 big ol' bag of green beans
  • 1 bunch celery
  • 1 package mushrooms
  • 2 yellow squash
  • 1 English cucumber
  • 5 tomatoes
  • 6 Hatch chili peppers
  • 10 bananas
  • 1 Honeydew melon
  • 1 pineapple
So between my baskets, I got roughly double that.

What will we do with all of this?
  • lettuce, celery, mushrooms, tomatoes, and all of the fruit just get used.  Nothing terribly special involved.
  • One cauliflower, one cucumber and some celery is going to be chopped up to do a veggies & dip thing for church.
  • The other cucumber was given away to a friend who needs it more than I do.
  • The other cauliflower might just be chopped and done with dip around here.
  • Green beans are going to be a side dish for a couple of meals this week.
  • Yellow squash: I am playing with some things like scalloped squash or who knows what.  I need a good, solid, yummy side dish that my family will love so I don't always struggle with how to use squash.
  • Chili peppers:  I am going to be making a Mexican lasagna recipe again, and I'll be blogging about on the Bountiful Baskets blog.  That will use some tomatoes too, most likely.
