Bountiful Baskets Haul from March 6, 2010

Yesterday was the first day of Bountiful Baskets at Tuacahn, where I am one of the site coordinators. I think it went very well, all things considered. Take a look at the wonderful produce we got! I can't say enough good things about this coop. The bread is amazing, and the produce is fantastic.

Below is the Mex-pack...I've already used the green onions and 6 zucchinis (some from the mexi-pack and some from my basket) in the roasted zucchini with feta cheese recipe I made as a part of dinner tonight. I got the recipe from Kalyn's Kitchen, and it is delicious!
Five loaves of 9 grain bread....$10. It is really good! Some is going in the freezer.
Below is what I got from the standard basket, which costs $15. Lots of bananas, tangerines, apples (braeburn), spinach, cabbage, zucchinis, cucumbers, strawberries, blueberries, asparagus and red leaf lettuce.

Since I am a site coordinator, I was able to order a couple of cases of organic blueberries for $15. Can I tell you how thrilled I am about that! Of course, my family is gobbling them up!

We are really enjoying Bountiful Baskets! Check it out at http://www.bountifulbaskets.org/ .

Those blueberries are so sweet and delicious!!! I don't usually like raw blueberries but these were fantastic. I'm a little jealous that you could get a whole case! ;)

Pummelos. . . Did you get pummelos?! So jealous. Our Mandarins were good (if a bit too seedy) and the blue berries were scrumptious.

We got pummelos 2 weeks ago. They were fantastic!

I just joined the Bountiful harvest site! I am hoping to order a basket next week. A friend told me about it- but I am excited to hear more great things about it!
