What was in those baskets on October 15th

15 10 2011

Another great Saturday spent distributing and getting wonderful produce. I hope everyone had a great day!

This weeks basket had cucumbers, carrots, apples, avocados, pears, plums, lettuce, broccoli, tomatoes, cauliflower, grapes, and bananas.

In my family cucumbers don’t last long because my kids love to eat them sliced up. If your family isn’t like mine and you are able to keep your cucumbers a few of my favorite things to do with them are to use in a Greek Salad or make Greek Chicken Wraps with homemade Tzatziki sauce (cucumber and yogurt sauce). Another great salad is the Taco salad, this would use up a lot of your veggies from your basket.

I have been on a Tomato and Basil Bruschetta thing lately and I have been making it quite often. A great way to use your tomatoes and garlic!

For your cauliflower give Cauliflower with White Sauce, cauliflower fritters, or oven roasted cauliflower a try. Cracker Barrel Baby Carrots are easy and delicious and well as Broccoli with Cashews. For a delicious snack try baked apple crisps or this amazing fruit dip.

I hope everyone has a great weekend and enjoys their wonderful produce from bountiful baskets.
