Using Your Bountiful Baskets – 6-6-15 Distribution

Happy Basket Day!  The baskets today were bursting with summer goodness.  I overheard several people commenting on how impressed they were with the basket today.  And I couldn’t believe how heavy they were!  Definitely a good value.  I don’t think we’ll have any trouble using up the produce because my family likes every item in […]

Using Your Bountiful Basket – 5-23-15 Distribution

I’m so glad we had a Bountiful Baskets distribution today.  I was down to the last little bits and ready to replenish my produce supplies.  The Conventional basket held a few surprises – nectarines and rainbow carrots.  Yum!

This […]

I almost missed getting a basket this week, because, well…..I forgot to contribute until 10:15PM on Tues – yikes! […]

How To Freeze Pesto

Welcome back to the second installment of Friday Free For All.  My family enjoys pesto (especially The Girl), but it isn’t something we eat regularly because pesto is expensive.  In order to make it more affordable, I typically purchase the Kirkland brand Signature Basil Pesto from Costco – 22 ounces for about $6-7.  The problem […]
