Bountiful Baskets - January 25

Changes they are a'coming.  My Bountiful Baskets site is going to be switching to Friday evenings, and will only be happening every other week.  Don't know if that is happening this coming week already, or if it will be sometime past that.

I'm sad, but excited about changes too.

So, this morning, I got two baskets.  Here is a photo of one of them:

Between the TWO baskets, this includes:
  • 10 pounds of potatoes
  • 3 heads of green cauliflower, or brociflour
  • 4 bunches broccoli
  • a whole lot of Brussels sprouts
  • 2 heads leafy green lettuce
  • 16 onions
  • 30 bananas
  • 8 pears
  • 4 Asian pears
  • 18 oranges/tangerines
Most of this is not terribly challenging to use:
  • all the fruit is eating fruit. It will be consumed by the minions.
  • potatoes are a staple here, and honestly, I was getting down there.  These will just get used.
  • onions are mostly a staple too, but these probably need to get used quickly.  I'm going to dehydrate a bunch, and do onion powder or something.
  • Broccoli and Brussels sprouts will be side dishes for a few nights.
  • The cauliflower, well, I need to think on that.  I usually do up a head of cauliflower with mashed potatoes, another with alfredo sauce, and have the kids much on a third one.  But with the green color, I may have a harder time with that.  I will have to see.
 That's the scoop for this week!

I've done roasted cauliflower lately and it disappears. (Drizzle florets with olive oil, bake at 350-ish until golden brown.)
