What was in those baskets on January 21st

22 01 2012

What a crazy day! We had a storm coming in and the wind was blowing pretty hard even for Kingman. We even had a late truck today but that didn’t stop the amazing volunteers from working hard to get all the produce unloaded and distributed. It was all worth it because we had a very large basket this week!


This weeks basket had bananas, kiwi, pomegranate, oranges, apples, lettuce, corn, broccoli, tomatoes, and cauliflower.

This week my family is going to be working on eating meals out of our freezer to clean things out a bit. Of course we will be eating all of our produce as sides to our meals. I plan on making Corn Chowder, Baked Parmesan Tomatoes, and Brussels Sprouts with Balsamic and Cranberries with some of our produce. The Brussels Spouts were a huge hit in my house and I was thinking about substituting pomegranate in place of the dried cranberries.

I hope everyone had a great week and enjoys the basket. What are your plans with your produce this week?
