What was in those baskets on December 17th

18 12 2011

This was our last basket of 2011. Due to the way the holidays have fallen over the next few weeks Bountiful Baskets won’t run again until January 7th. So make sure to get on and get your basket on January 2nd. I hope everyone enjoys the holidays and we will see you in 2012!


This weeks basket had corn, carrots, celery, butter lettuce, potatoes, avocado, pears, watermelon, grapes, bananas, and oroblanco grapefruit.

If you are looking for a warm soup during these colder months try the Corn Chowder. It will use your corn, potatoes, and if you have frozen bell peppers from previous baskets. If you still have some carrots left over try Cracker Barrel Baby Carrots.

I am a big fan of potatoes and prepared in almost any form so try Creamy Mashed Potatoes, Parmesan Roasted Potatoes, Onion Roasted Potatoes, Cheesy Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Cheesy Potato Cakes or my favorite Smashed Hot Potatoes.

The Butter lettuce works great for making lettuce wraps and they also will use some of your carrots. These are always a hit in our house.

For the avocado you can make Guacamole or this awesome black bean, corn, and avocado dip. Both would be great at any holiday gathering.

Happy Holidays!
