Bountiful Baskets - a Food Co-op

A bountiful spread of fruits and vegetables was my gathering last Saturday at our Bountiful Baskets pick up. Look at all the goodies in this "basket"! From sweet juicy strawberries to fresh green spinach and a new one for me, sunchokes, we've been enjoying a bountiful feast each day since then. The bonus has been that I've lost a pound this week, and had tasty fruits and vegetables each day. The cost for all of this? Since it was our first time participating it came to 19.50 with tax, but when you figure we got over 30 lbs of produce then hey, what a bargain! I've shared some with my in-laws as they can't get out to shop, and they sure enjoyed the fresh berries and mangoes in our fruit salads. Tonight we will be having a Cornish game hen with roasted yellow squash, sweet potatoes, cabbage, carrots, and a spinach salad on the side. If you happen to live in Arizona, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Washington or Wyoming you are in luck. Drop offs are every 2 weeks, and if you are a volunteer there's a little extra for you. Stop by the Bountiful Baskets website and get in on the good life!
