Bountiful Baskets: July 6

I missed doing Bountiful Baskets last week.  I think I have definitely gotten used to this every week thing.

So, I contributed for two baskets this week.  Here's one:

Between the two, we got:
  • 4 heads red leaf lettuce
  • 3 eggplants
  • 3 bunches broccoli
  • 8 red onions
  • 3 bags of green grapes
  • 2 personal size watermelons
  • 2 pineapple
  • 11 peaches
  • 10 plums
  • 2 mangoes
  • 8 bananas
What will we do with all of this?

All of the fruit will just be eaten.  No planning necessary.  I may possibly dehydrate the pineapple, but I doubt it.  They are pretty green, so we won't be eating them soon. 

Lettuce just gets eaten.

Onions just get used.  No special plans.

Broccoli-- the kids will have some with ranch dressing, we'll so some sort of broccoli-chicken casserole for lunch this week once or twice, and probably a stir-fry.  With red onions.

I made some type of a pasta thing with the eggplant last time.  I fully intended to write that up, or bookmark it, or something.  My family LOVED it.  All I remember is eggplant, cottage cheese, and my spaghetti sauce.  <sigh>  So, I guess I'll look around a bit to see if I can find what I did last time.

Not too exciting of plans, huh?

Yummy! I see lots of my favorites in that box.

I know, Jennifer!! Isn't that a great looking assortment?

I'll confess that I was hoping for carrots though. I am completely out of them. I may just need to purchase some produce this week...

The eggplant-cottage cheese-spaghetti sauce sounds like a vegetarian lasagna recipe without the pasta where you use the eggplant in place of the nooodles. I've done that with zucchini before.

Oh, and I love eggplant parmasean. Dave insists that I cut the purple skin off the eggplant (says it is too bitter), dunk in egg, roll in breadcrumbs, pan fry it. Yum.
