Bountiful Baskets: January 11

The first Bountiful Baskets of the year!  I am so excited to be back.

It was really early this morning, but I'll adjust again.  And it was a beautiful basket.

I just got one, so it includes:
  • 2 heads Romaine lettuce
  • 1 big yam
  • 1 yellow squash (they were short, so I volunteered to take the basket that was missing one)
  • 1 bunch plus 1 stem of broccoli
  • 4 pretty red bell peppers
  • 2 pints grape tomatoes
  • 1 big bag grapes
  • 8 Fuji apples
  • 8 Bartlett pears
  • 3 mangoes
  • 9 bananas
 I also contributed for a box of Roma tomatoes, and some organic apple cider vinegar.

What am I doing with stuff?  Well...
  • I'm making spaghetti sauce with some of the tomatoes, and I'll also add the squash and a red bell pepper.
  • I'm making salsa with some of the tomatoes, and I'll add a couple bell peppers
  • We're doing stir-fry with the broccoli, a red pepper, and some other stuff.
  • Lettuce will be used in salads, along with the grape tomatoes.
  • I need to cook up sweet potatoes as I have a lot around right now.
  • I'll probably dehydrate the mangoes, or they will be smoothies.
  • Grapes, apples, pears, and bananas will just be eaten.
