Bountiful Baskets: April 21

So, all day today, I am going to be thinking it is Saturday, as starting the day unloading produce from a truck HAS to mean it is Saturday...

This 24 hour delay thing is going to be messing me up.

Nice basket today, but I am glad I only got one.  I also split a box of apples and a box of Roma tomatoes with a friend, so I have plenty of produce to go around at the moment.

  • 1 bunch of Romaine lettuce
  • 2 bunches of broccoli
  • 1 head of broccoflower
  • 13 red potatoes
  • 10 chilies
  • 4 avocado
  • 3 tomatoes
  • 2 honeydew melons
  • 6 bananas
  • 1 box of blackberries
  • 2 mangoes
What will we do with all of this?

Fruit will just be eaten.  The melons will go with breakfast a couple of days in a row.

Potatoes, tomatoes, lettuce -- those are all staples that just get used.

Broccoli -- I'll be doing stir fry one night (the only way Dale will eat broccoli) and a casserole type of something for lunch one day.

Broccoflower, well, I always have a tough time figuring out just what to do with it.  I'll come up with something.

Chilies are probably going to be roasted and frozen.  Some will go into salsa, but those might be the ones from last week's basket.

Avocado -- we still have some from a week or two ago that are just getting ripe.  I suspect I'll be freezing some of this too.

Those red potatoes would make great "Hot Crash Potatoes" (recipe on Pioneer Woman's website).

How do you freeze avocados?
