Bountiful Baskets: September 1

I had a rather late night, so getting up to go volunteer at Bountiful Baskets was a bit tough.  I did it though.

It was a great day.  I was praying for practical, filling stuff this time around.

Doesn't that look amazing?  This is one of my two baskets, but I think I got extra tomatoes into the picture.
  • 5 pounds of potatoes
  • 5 ears of corn
  • 2 heads of lettuce (other basket had 1)
  • 2 avocados
  • 4 tomatoes
  • about a dozen Hatch chilies
  • 4 grapefruit
  • 3 pears
  • 8 limes
  • 4 plums
  • big bag of grapes
I also got the fajita pack:

Aren't they beautiful?

I'll be making salsa, especially if I get the chance to pick some tomatoes from my garden.  We're having fajitas. I'll be roasting and freezing chilies.  I'll be canning peaches (I also got a 20# box of peaches).  We'll have corn with dinner a couple of times.  I'll be doing up a bunch of limeade concentrate.

We've got fixin's for a couple of salads, and oh, it is nice to have potatoes in the house again.

And fruit.  Lots of fruit.

What a great Bountiful Baskets week.
