Today is easy. In spite of the truck being late, in spite of it being way too early in the morning...
Today I am thankful for Bountiful Baskets.
$31.50. That's what two baskets cost me. And because of the lateness of the truck, we didn't even get everything we were supposed to (the extras didn't get distributed.)
Even still... doesn't this look fantastic? Well, no, it doesn't. The camera battery was dead, so this photo uses my Touch, in bad lighting... but it is the best I could do...
- 10 pounds of potatoes
- 6 pounds Fuji apples
- 2 bunches celery
- 5 big ol' bags of grapes
- 4 good sized yellow onions (and we needed onions!)
- 2 containers of blackberries
- 10 kiwi
- 6 oroblanco (a grapefuit-like fruit)
- 16 bananas
- 4 yellow squash
- 4 persimmons
- yams (a lot of them. I didn't count. At least a dozen though. Probably more.)
My plans for this haul?
We'll be snacking on the apples, grapes, bananas, kiwi and blackberries.
Celery, onions and potatoes are just staples and will get used. I was out of celery and nearly out of onions, so I was thrilled with this.
Persimmons -- I plan to try the recipe Brenda posted as her gratitude post about a year ago!
Oroblanco -- I'll probably be eating these for breakfast over the next couple weeks.
Yams -- probably do a potato/yam dish of some type a couple of times.
Yellow Squash -- okay, this is the one item I have no plans for. I need something creative. I have to admit that I don't particularly love these, which means I need something different...
