Bountiful Baskets: October 27

Today was also known as -- My First Time as a Volunteer Site Coordinator.

Eeek!

We didn't have many people at all today, and it all went well.  But wow, I just didn't sleep.  I was so worried I'd sleep late or something.

Here is the photo of one of my two baskets:


Included in BOTH baskets, combined, I got:
  • 1 Spaghetti Squash
  • 5 Yellow Squash
  • 3 boxes of Living Lettuce
  • 2 bunches Broccoli
  • 12 Cucumbers
  • 14 Bananas
  • 3 boxes Blackberries
  • 12 Bosc Pears
  • 5 Pomegranates
Dale is suggesting we do a stir-fry with the broccoli and the yellow squash.

I've never had spaghetti squash, so I'll be googling to find out how to use that.

Pomegranates are going to end up being mixed up for Pomegranate-Apple Crisp, and the filling will go in the freezer.

Cucumbers are probably going to turn into pickles.

Everything else we'll just eat.

Anyone have other ideas for me?

This was my first week for Bountiful Baskets after years of hearing you talk about it. My basket had mostly the same as yours, but we also got cauliflower and brussel sprouts.

I really hope they have honeycrisp apples again next week. I should've sprung for them this week.

Cristi!! YAY!!!

Our site has too few baskets, so we didn't get cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, or onions.

And the honeycrisp apples looked amazing. I was wishing I had sprung for them too...

Living lettuce? As opposed to dead lettuce?
