What was in those baskets this week?

12 03 2011

This was a great week for the Kingman Bountiful Baskets.  We had an amazing group of volunteers that did a fantastic job.  Things went smooth and everyone seemed excited for their produce.  A great big thank you to all the volunteers Bountiful Baskets wouldn’t work with out your help.


A great basket this week.  We got 1 cantaloupe, 1 basket of strawberries, 2 baskets of blueberries, 1 bunch of broccoli, 4 apples, 6 tomatoes, 1 green cauliflower, 4 bananas, a bag of green beans, and 2 papayas.  I can’t wait to get cooking with my basket.


I have never had a papaya before so I will do some research and post some ideas for them later.  I am planning on making my Oven Roasted Green Beans with Garlic.  I loved the BBQ Chicken Salad so much that I will be making that again with my lettuce and tomatoes.  If I can keep my kids from eating my strawberries and blueberries I am planning on making a Ricotta Lemon Pound cake and putting the berries on top of it for a nice dessert. For the broccoli you could make broccoli casserole which was really good, oven roasted broccoli, or broccoli and tortellini salad.  Keep checking back for ideas and recipes.


In case you were wondering about the granola, it is amazing.  I love eating it as a snack and it is one of my favorite extras from Bountiful Baskets.  Great job Kingman, see you in two weeks!
