Bountiful Baskets: November 23

Bountiful Baskets today was fabulous as always! 

This is a photo of one of my baskets:

My TWO baskets contained:
  • 3 heads of Romaine lettuce
  • 5 1-lb bags carrots
  • 6 enormous yams
  • 12 enormous russet potatoes
  • 7 huge onions
  • 8 cucumbers
  • 12 tomatoes on the vine
  • 3 cantaloupe
  • 24 bananas
  • 13 apples
How will we use it?  Well... this one isn't really difficult.  It is pretty much all staples. Fruit will be eaten, yams and potatoes will become sides on Thanksgiving, lettuce, carrots, onions and tomatoes are just used.

Cucumbers -- a couple will be sliced and dunked in ranch dressing by the kids.  I'm going to try doing a vinegar thing with a couple more to see if I can't use them up.
