Bountiful Baskets: March 31

Okay, so here I get to brag on one of many angels in my life.  You know who you are.

I was able to go in and pick up stuff at Bountiful Baskets today -- at a sane time of the day.  Rumor has it though, that it isn't going to continue to be at a sane time of day.  Rumor also has it that Colorado may go to every week come May.  And (be still my heart) a location might open in Ellicott.  Oh, oh, oh... 20 miles from me.  Even if it is a 5:00 a.m. volunteer time, that would mean leaving my house around 4:45 instead of the 4:00 am I have had to do.

Okay, so back to my angel of a friend -- she bought me a basket.  And a box of tangerines.  And a hostess basket.  And a cookie pack.  My youngest three are totally beyond excited about the cookies.

I got photos of the basket and the hostess pack.  I'm totally excited about the asparagus.

In the basket, we got:
  • leaf lettuce
  • 4 smallish heads of broccoli
  • 2 normal sized bunches of asparagus
  • 6 good-sized sweet potatoes
  • a box of grape tomatoes
  • a 3 pound bag of pears
  • 3 grapefruit
  • 4 tangerines
  • 7 oranges
  • 6 big bananas

In the hostess pack, we got:
  • 2 5 pound bags of potatoes
  • a huge bunch of asparagus
  • a bag of carrots
  • a bag of radishes
  • a bunch of radishes
  • a pineapple
  • a bunch of green onions
  • 3 lemons
  • 1 big onion
  • a bag of some type of herb.  I'm guessing mint.  I just put it in the fridge and didn't even try to id it.  I'm tired.
  • a big bunch of celery
  • a big bag of green beans
I simply cannot believe how much food there was between everything.  And did I mention I'm excited about all the asparagus?
