What was in those baskets on September 10th

10 09 2011

I know I have been away from the weekly bountiful basket update for a few weeks. I have been enjoying my baskets but have been so busy. Thanks again to all the wonderful volunteers in Kingman, bountiful baskets would not be quite as wonderful without all of you!


This weeks basket had figs, peaches, plums, bananas, pears, grapes, spinach, lettuce, sweet potato fries, and cauliflower.

I was really excited to see sweet potatoes in our basket this week. I can’t wait to make sweet potato fries with them. If you aren’t up for that give the Sweet Potato and Paremsan Chips a try or Mashed Sweet Potato Casserole.

Cauliflower with White Sauce is an easy side dish to make along with Oven Roasted Cauliflower. For something a bit different try Cauliflower Fritters. Last week I mashed our cauliflower in with our mashed potatoes for a great side dish.

I am planning on making Mini Florentine Cups with my spinach from this week but another favorite in our house is Chicken Parmesan Bundles. If you are looking for something else try Lazy Baked Greek Chicken, Spinach Mushroom Cannelloni, or White Pizza with Spinach and Tomatoes.

Whatever you make with your basket I am sure it will be great. Let me know what you plan on making with your basket and I will see you next week!

How about an idea for the figs…I have never had them before

My husband just eats them like candy. He loves them and he has never had fresh figs before. If you aren’t a fan check out Fig Newtons with Fresh Figs. http://chickensintheroad.com/farm-bell-recipes/fig-newtons-with-fresh-figs/
